Ancelotti aiming to upset Liverpool once again, this time for Everton

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win When Carlo Ancelotti took over at Everton last month, the Italian already had an eye on Sunday’s FA Cup third round Merseyside derby against runaway English Premier League leaders Liverpool. Ancelotti, at his previous club Napoli, managed to do what no other manager in England has achieved this season — beat Juergen Klopp’s side. Liverpool lost 2-0 in Naples in the UEFA Champions League in September and followed that up with a 1-1 draw in the return game at Anfield. That was the only time the Reds have not won at home this season. The only other defeat for Liverpool this season came in the EFL Cup when the club were forced to play a youth team against Aston Villa. This was due to their first team being on duty at the Club World Cup in Qatar. “The Evertonians know my record against Liverpool, they will be happy with this,” Ancelotti said when he was unveiled as manager. “It’s a big rivalry here and a big motivation for us. I have a really good relationship with Juergen Klopp. It is always exciting playing against them. “Of course, I have beaten them, but they are not used to losing. It was a good day for me. I know how much Evertonians want to beat Liverpool. “It’s not mission impossible, nothing is impossible in football,” he added. Everton have responded well to the arrival of Ancelotti, who replaced the sacked Marco Silva. They have enjoyed wins in the Premier League over Burnley and Newcastle United before Wednesday’s loss at Manchester City. Liverpool could feature their new Japanese forward Takumi Minamino, signed from Salzburg. He had impressed so much against Klopp’s team in the UEFA Champions League, where he also came up against Ancelotti’s Napoli. The derby is the standout game of the third round which traditionally provides plenty of upsets with top-flight teams pitted against lower league opposition. Coming after a hectic spell of festive games, many managers will be tempted to rotate their squads and give chances to fringe players, which could offer the chance for surprise outcomes. Among the ties which feature Premier League sides against those from down the English football pyramid is the one having Steve Bruce’s Newcastle travel to third-tier (League One) Rochdale on Saturday. Holders Manchester City take on League Two (fourth tier) Port Vale while West Ham United and Burnley face League One opponents in Gillingham and Peterborough. Monday sees a fascinating encounter between Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and Championship (second tier) leaders Leeds United coached by Argentine Marcelo Bielsa — a repeat of the 1972 FA Cup final. Championship (second tier) club Preston North End, twice FA Cup winners, host the Premier League’s bottom club Norwich City while Nottingham Forest, fourth in the Championship, travel to Chelsea.Tags: Carlo AncelottiEvertonFA CupLiverpoollast_img read more

The Coach added that once assistance was given by the Government, the community was willing to assist in the works to be carried out. He added that they could also adapt the Community Centre building, next door to the ground, which was presently not functioning and was slowly being taken over by vegetation. According to the Coach, he is presently engaging the youths, both male and female, in cricket and football, but space to practice is the problem.
