Carlo Ancelotti was far from happy with his Everton side’s display against Newcastle United on Sunday.
The Toffees started the campaign fantastically, moving to the top of the table after winning four and drawing one of their first five matches. However, they were defeated 2-0 against Southampton, and they were then on the end of a 2-1 scoreline up in Newcastle.
After the match, Ancelotti was clearly disappointed. He did admit that the absence of the likes of Richarlison and James Rodriguez did not help them from an attacking point of view, but he still expected more from his side.
Will Everton beat Manchester United next week?
His words, though, did not go down well at all amongst the Toffees supporters – they were not happy that he made excuses about the players who weren’t available, and they appeared to be worried that this is the kind of thing former manager Marco Silva would say. They took to Twitter to share their frustration.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Ancelotti below
All you fault Carlo. Continue doing stupid selections like that and you’ll be lucky to last 2 years let alone stay for longer. Koeman-esque today.

Carlo got it so wrong today… How Gordon didn’t play is beyond me.

It was like Carlo did his best to loose the game!

Back to the Silva era today, beating ourselves with dumb mistakes.
We need to be more intelligent and to move the ball quicker from defence to attack.
We have been too easy to defend against these last two games.

I’ve only listened to the 1st 20 seconds and he’s actually said he knew beforehand we would struggle! Unbelievable

The blame totally lies with you Mr Ancelotti
