FRANK LAMPARD broke his arm in Everton’s impressive celebration – but he says he doesn’t care.
The Toffees boss became confused when Alex Iwobi held his head when the others at Goodison Park had lost theirs.
He received Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s cute reverse pass in his stride and edged past Martin Dubravka to score the winning goal 99TH-MIN.
Unsurprisingly, Lampard – who had previously been on fire when Allan controversially saw the red – celebrated the goal wildly.
He joined Richarlison and his coaching staff in jumping around in the hole dug the house.
But amid the chaos, Lamps hit his left hand hard – it was vibrating as he checked his watch in the final seconds.
And when he went on air to discuss three key points, the former England midfielder displayed a nasty bruise and lump.
I said Main video: “I broke my arm in celebration. My bones must be softening, I don’t remember the moment.
“I didn’t realize it at the time, but as the game went on, I was a little sore and shaking.
“But I don’t care – I’ll take it for three points.

“It was a great night and we need those nights. Spirit and solidarity, the players stood up tonight.”
Lampard was furious after Allan’s yellow card was upgraded after a VAR check for his rough foul on Allan Saint-Maximin.
That lengthy review, plus the eight-minute stoppage after a protester tied a lanyard to the goalpost, meant 14 minutes of injury time.
And in season nine, Iwobi put Goodison in a coma.
Lampard added: “It was not a quality or calm night. It meant a lot to the stadium that we all felt it. I wanted to use the atmosphere.
“Everton fans want to witness the passion. We proved what we can be tonight.”
“I don’t think it’s a red card. It’s a yellow, yes, is that a deep yellow? Maybe. But it’s not an obvious error. It was the wrong decision and we lost Allan for three. battle.”
