Wilder praises Ancelotti

Chris Wilder has praised his opposing manager ahead of tomorrow night's game. Wilder said:

Embed from Getty Images

“A lot of things that can happen for that – injuries, managers trying different things and people should realise the position they were in when he took over.

“They were involved in a relegation scrap so to get in the position as early as they have done is testament to the affect he’s had on his players.

Ancelotti: We want to show our best qualities

Speaking about tomorrow night's opponents, Carlo Ancelotti told the club website:

“We are going to play a team doing really well in this period, they beat Tottenham, Chelsea and Wolves at home,” said Ancelotti.

“They play with intensity and are really aggressive.

“We want to show our best qualities.

“[We want] fighting spirit and to improve our attacking play, which in the past period wasn’t so good.

Everton Team News

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed earlier in the week that trio Mason Holgate, Yerry Mina and Fabian Delph will miss the rest of the season with injury. 

This means Everton may turn to 18-year-old Jarrad Branthwaite to partner Michael Keane in what would be his first Premier League Start.

23:362 months ago

Everton looking to end the season strongly

Embed from Getty Images

Everton's European hopes ended a few weeks back and are now looking to finish the season on a high. But Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to see which players could still play their way into his plans for next season.

23:242 months ago

Have the Blades blown their European dream?

Embed from Getty Images

Sheffield United find themselves sitting in 8th place going into tomorrow night's game. It's looking likely that 7th place maybe the last remaining European spot (unless Arsenal win the FA Cup). So the Blades will need a win to leapfrog Wolves into that last remaining European spot.
