Ancelotti expects tough encounter against United

Carlo Ancelotti has talked about the Everton squad and how they are preparing to face Manchester United.

We have Pickford out for this game; he has not recovered yet,” Ancelotti told reporters, as per Liverpool Echo.

“We have Allan out; he has started training with the team today.

“We have Gbamin out; [he is] following his individual programme. It’s too early to say when he will be back.”

“He [Olsen] had a great game [against Leeds]. He played really well and he’s going to play tomorrow because Pickford is out.

“When Pickford will be back, he is going to play like he played usually, but I think Olsen can also play some games.”

“We played two games against them this season; we lost both at home. We have to change something for sure, because if we follow the same way we played, I think we are going to lose. We will try to plan a different strategy, and we’ll see how it works.

“This [9-0 win] is bad news! They scored nine goals, but at the same time, the [home] game before, they lost against Sheffield United. I have to choose what to say to the players, but the players know it will be a really difficulty game.

“United is a fantastic team; a team with a good mix between experience and talented young players. But I hope it will also be difficult for them to play against us.

“The mental aspect is really important. We have to try do something different, to create more problems than in the past games we played against them.”
