Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has mentioned the one area his side must improve in after their 3-2 win over Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

Carlo Ancelotti wants his team to improve defensively after they conceded two goals in the victory over Fulham.

Calvert-Lewin continued his impressive form and bagged a brace in the victory for Everton at Craven Cottage. The Englishman became the first forward in the Premier League to hit ten goals this term.

The victory saw Everton bring their run of four games without a win to an end.

However, the Toffees had to hold on in the latter stages and could have even taken home just a point if not for a missed penalty.

The result means Ancelotti and Everton can only boast of one clean sheet so far this season. It came in their Premier League opening day victory against Tottenham.

The Italian boss has now called on his side to improve in the defensive department.

Speaking after the match, Ancelotti said as per BBC: “The most important part of the game was to be back to winning.”

“We lost energy in the second half, the players were tired, I changed to put more fresh legs on the pitch but we lost a bit of quality and we had to defend as a result but in the end it went well.”

“Alex Iwobi played well, like the others played really well. I am pleased for him. In that wing-back position eh can show his quality.”

“We have to improve defensively for sure. We were not so compact and not so close to the line. We have time this week to work on this.”
