Everton's Ancelotti defends Pickford after error

Everton's Ancelotti defends Pickford after error”

Carlo Ancelotti has revealed to the Liverpool Echo that he was not hard on his Everton players last night, despite seeing them let a lead slip against Leicester City.

Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti has provided a fitness update on Super Eagles playmaker, Alex Iwobi ahead of today's English Premier League clash against Leicester City at Goodison Park. But in the 67th minute Pickford allowed a Youri Tielemans shot to squirm through his arms and into the net.

There surely must be question marks over whether the England global keeps his place in Everton's team at the weekend now, with Robin Olsen waiting in the wings.

According to Ancelotti, the keepers view prior to the goal was not good with the Italian welcoming the point. "I didn't speak with him directly and I am not going to speak with him". There is no reason.

He added that he was satisfied with a draw against an impressive Leicester side who are third on 39 points. "It's a good point for us", he said. After they equalised we had opportunities to win but honestly I think the result is fair'.

"The squad are all in good condition". They reacted to going behind, and we stayed right in the game.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers, whose side is now unbeaten in nine in all competitions, praised his side.

"Really, James we didn't talk about a contract in this moment - we are more than happy he is here and he is happy to be here".
