Fa CUP is a very important tournament for Carlo and Everton fans. Before a clash against Tottenham, Carlo Ancelotti gave a press-conference.
Improving at home-stadium: Goodison Park
Carlo Ancelotti said that the team has to improve form at home-stadium. Italian coach believes that Everton has a serious chance to win a CUP tournament this season. The main contender will be Tottenham. The London-based team will visit Everton on Wednesday night and it’s a good match for Carlo. Italian coach noted that Everton has everything ready to win the battle against Jose’s team.
The strategy with MU worked
The coach of Everton admitted that strategy against MU worked really well. He said that in the midfield, Everton always had one-more person, so MU players felt like Everton was playing with 11+1 players. It’s a good strategy Carlo admitted but still, the strategy needs perfect fitness conditions of Everton players. James Rodriguez is still adapting to new strategy and that’s why the team will slowly adapt new strategy in PL and cup matches. Carlo said that Everton was way too slow in passing in the first half against MU. That’s why in the second half the team started playing faster and passing without two-touches.
Two main targets of this season
Ancelotti said that Everton has two main targets for this season. First of all, it’s important to have stability, so Everton has to fight for the Euro zone in the table. The Premier League table looks promising in this current moment for Everton. Team still has a chance to fight for a Champions League spot. At the same time, Everton’s coach said that the team has to win the trophy. The only possible trophy this season is a “FA Cup”. That’s why Carlo believes that the players will do everything to win the match on Wednesday night.
