  • Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti explains key difference between Man City and Liverpool

    Carlo Ancelotti has won his first two games as Everton manager.

    Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has welcomed this weekend’s FA Cup third round Merseyside derby with Liverpool  by stating it’s good to have a big test. The Italian also compared the Reds’ form this season to Premier League champions Manchester City, who are third in the table.
    Liverpool lead City by 16 points and look on course to win their first ever Premier League title.
    Jurgen Klopp’s side came close to doing it last year, finishing just a solitary point behind City.
    But this season Liverpool, who have already beaten Everton 5-2 in the league, have only dropped two points.
    Klopp’s side take on Sheffield United at Anfield on Thursday, before facing Everton again in the FA Cup third round at the weekend.
    But Ancelotti isn’t fearing the challenge of facing Liverpool, the side which famously beat his AC Milan team in the 2005 Champions League final.
    “I think that the moment is good for us,” he said
    It’s good to have this kind of test but also against Liverpool.
    “We have to be happy with trying to compete with the top teams in England and Europe.”
    Ancelotti also stated that City’s failure to keep up last season’s form is costing them this year.
    The ex-Napoli manager still believes that City boss Guardiola is a ‘genius’ of a coach.
    “Liverpool have won all of the games,” Ancelotti said.
    “That is why (Man City trail). It is a fantastic run but maybe Man City aren’t at the same level as last year. That’s the difference.
    “They remain a fantastic team with fantastic players and a fantastic manager.
    “It’ll be a tough test but we need confidence to compete and focus on our football.
    Pep is a fantastic manager. I have a good relationship with him.
    “I have met him a few times. I have a lot of respect for him.
    “He is a genius. He always try to do something special on the pitch.”
