Everton have made a perfect start to the season but Carlo Ancelotti has told his players there is one aspect of their play he is unhappy with. The Blues have picked up three wins from three games in the Premier League and look to repeat the trick in the Carabao Cup tonight against West Ham United. Everton have seen off lower-division Salford City and Fleetwood Town to reach round four and know victory at Goodison this evening will book a place in the quarter-finals. Ancelotti has described the Blues’ 100% start to the campaign as “fantastic” but the Italian boss insists there is plenty of room for improvement – especially their passing out from the back.
Carlo Ancelotti said “The way Crystal Palace scored was disappointing but mistakes are not an issue for me if the players use them to learn and avoid the same situation happening again, We could have built up play quicker from the back at the weekend. I think maybe in this aspect we had some worries because of the goal we conceded under pressure against Fleetwood last week. This is one of the many areas where we can work to improve for the future. The challenge is increasing with every round, We rotated the selection for the past two cup matches; it is impossible for players to be 100-per-cent fit at the start of a season and we have to manage the busy schedule. The players who played only in the cup so far have been really good: serious and focused and motivated. I have confidence in all of them. Firstly, everyone at Everton extends their best wishes to David Moyes and hopes he makes a quick and complete recovery after his positive test for coronavirus, Last time we met at Goodison, David was managing Everton and he did a really excellent job for a long time for this club. He is an experienced football man with a lot of knowledge and his teams are very tough to play against. West Ham will be strong in defence, with a lot of challenges and closing the spaces, but very dangerous on the transition with fast and skilful players up front.”
