Everton fans have been heaping praise on manager Carlo Ancelotti for his team’s turnaround in form since he joined the club.
The three-time Champions League winner was appointed in December following the sacking of Marco Silva, as the Toffees slipped into the relegation zone after a heavy 5-2 defeat against arch-rivals Liverpool at Anfield. The Portuguese boss ended his tenure with a win percentage of just 35.9% (according to BBC Sport) and finished his reign with three straight defeat and four points out of a possible 18, as per the Premier League.

Following the Blues’ 1-1 draw against West Ham United on Saturday, fans were quick to understand and appreciate the turnaround in the team’s form under the Italian’s leadership. Dave Downie on Twitter (via @Daviddownie17) praised Ancelotti for picking up 10 points from a possible 15 and described it as a “very good return”. Everton now sit 11th in the league standings, level on points with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

Real good start from Master Ancelotti! Imagine with players like Koulibaly, Aké, Rugani, Can, Rabiot, Vecino, James, Carrasco, Ünder, Zieliński, Insigne, Mertens or Immobile!
