Arsenal vs Everton

Carlo Ancelotti takes his Everton team down to north London to face Arsenal tomorrow evening knowing that if they want to have any chance of making the Champions League places, they will need a positive result.

Everton sit in 8th place, 4 points behind Liverpool in 7th, but they do have a game in hand, although they have not won in their last five games.

Arsenal on the other hand are three points behind Everton in 9th.

Speaking on the game to the press today Ancelotti said “It’s a really important game, not decisive, but really important-all our last seven games are.”

“There is a lot of competition there. There’s also been a lot of draws so it’s a really competitive final period of the season, and I think we’re ready.

“It’s true that we didn’t have a good moment in the last month but now we are much better, we have a lot of players available, and we are ready to fight in this final part of the season.”

Ancelotti also provided an update on his squad and confirmed that Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina, Bernard and Fabian Delph and Andre Gomes are all back in contention to face Arsenal.

Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jean-Phillipe Gbamin are the only absentees.

“For every supporter of football it was a strange day, a surprise,” said the Everton boss. “We’ve heard about it [before] but I was sure the Super League wasn’t going to happen.

“Those 12 clubs were wrong because I think they didn’t take in to consideration the opinion of two parts that are really important – the players and managers, and the supporters.

“They wanted to build a competition without sport merit and this is not acceptable.”

When asked if he felt the 6 clubs should face punishment he replied that “I’m not the right person to say if they should be punished. Everyone can do mistakes.”
