Not consistent for the quality Richarlison has, says Ancelotti

The Everton coach requires more from the Brazil international following his poor form in front of goals this season.

Carlo Ancelotti

expects more from




as he has scored only six goals this season. The Brazilian has joined the club in 2018 and is about to make his 100th appearance for Everton when they go against

Aston Villa

on Saturday.

The striker has met the target in four consecutive

Premier League

games for the Toffees. During his start at Goodison Park, Richarlison has found the target 13 times for his side and this season he is showing a dramatic drop in output.


Not so consistent for the quality he has,"

Ancelotti said.

"It is acceptable that he has not been at his best.

"He had problems at the beginning of the season. He started well but was then suspended, travelling with the national team and then was out for personal reasons.

"From a physical viewpoint he was not always at the top, and this affected his technical performances.

"He had a good spell when Dominic [Calvert-Lewin] was out but he can do much better next season for sure, and I hope he can do better at the end of this season as well.

"He is a young player with a strong motivation because he wants to play for us, for the national team, and he wants to play in the Olympic Games. But we must not lose sight of the fact he is still a young player.

"When I say he can do better, it is not because he lost confidence or is not good enough. He is a fantastic striker, a top player, and he has had a normal season. But for the quality he has he can do much better."
