Everton finally won in a difficult game and reached the sixth place in the table. Ancelotti believes his team can still improve.

Carlo Ancelotti is happy that Everton is back on the winning ways but believes the team can still improve.

Everton finally won today's game against Fulham after four matches.

Ancelotti told BBC Sport: “The most important part of the game was to be back to winning.

“We lost energy in the second half, the players were tired. I changed to put more fresh legs on the pitch but we lost a bit of quality and we had to defend as a result but in the end it went well.”

One of the players that Ancelotti admired was Alex Iwobi. There were rumors last summer that he would leave the team. However, Ancelotti believes he could be a key player in the team.

Ancelotti said: “Alex Iwobi played well, like the others played really well. I am pleased for him. In that wing-back position he can show his quality.”

Although Everton won the game, they also conceded two goals in the match, which means they have not been able to clean sheet since September. However, Ancelotti is pleased with the result and believes the team will get better.

He added: “We have to improve (defensively) for sure.

“We were not so compact and not so close to the line. We have time this week to work on this.”
