Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has backed his team to keep delivering at home.
“It’s been a very good week, a very good performance,” Ancelotti told Sky Sports. “I really appreciate the teamwork, we were focused defensively, had a good combination in front. The performance was good and we deserved to win.
“We won a second ball and then Richarlison did a good movement, our striker was a little bit different. Dominic (Calvert-Lewin) played centre right and did in my opinion really well.
“Richarlison is a fantastic talent, we have two fantastic strikers with different characteristics.
“When you are 1-0 up the last minutes are always the same, the opposition team puts a lot of power in and we had to control. They had practically one opportunity. Pickford was good in the goal, really secure. I am really pleased, honestly.
“To fight for European places we need to improve the home run, this performance and victory can help us have a better run at home. It will be a dream to be in the top four at the end of the season. We are quite close, if we win Thursday, but the decision is long – we have to stay in our goal which is to play Europa next season.”
