Carlo Ancelotti

praises his side’s performance as they gain their fifth win their last six top-flight clashes.

He said:

“The players adapted really well. The position of James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson created problems for them. We adapted well to the characteristics of our players and at the back we were focused. All the back four were fantastic.

“We had a different approach without Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin. We played more to attack the flanks with Iwobi and (Lucas) Digne and it worked well because the first goal was a fantastic combination.

“Without Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin it is more difficult to score but I think to be focussed defensively enabled us to have a good game.”

Wolves on the other hand have not been in a good form recently as they have only one victory in their last eight Premier League matches but their boss says that they had a good performance against Everton.

“I’m very worried (about the form). It is something we know we need to improve but at the same time be aware of what is happening and what we have to do for the future.

“We played a good game, there were not too many chances for both teams in the second half. It was a game decided on set pieces, we are frustrated and on small details games are getting away from us.

“Everton defended well, were tight and organised and made our job difficult but in the second half we should have done better. We need all the players in the squad healthy so we can improve.

“We have a strong team spirit which, in moments which are not so good, require more unity. Soon we will be better.”
