Plenty of Everton fans have refused to get carried away despite the newly-appointed manager Carlo Ancelotti breaking a club record.
The three-time winning Champions League manager has had a strong start to life at Goodison Park after taking the permanent hot seat from previous boss Marco Silva, who was dismissed from the role in December. After the Toffees were lingering in the relegation zone before Christmas, the Italian has turned their fortunes around with five victories, two draws and just one defeat in the Premier League.
EFC Statto revealed on Twitter (via @EFC_Statto) that Ancelotti was the first manager since the war to accumulate the most amount of points from the first eight games, beating Ronald Koeman and Roberto Martinez who both got 15 points. Despite this, supporters were not getting ahead of themselves and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he does not like seeing stats such as this, while another described it as “fundamentally meaningless”.

The fact that Koeman and Martinez are 2nd and 3rd only reiterates that we shouldn’t get carried away! Sorry not sorry!!!!! https://t.co/3USweN6Zuw

Fascinating, this. And yet, fundamentally meaningless, given that Koeman and Allardyce had significantly better starts than Catterick and Kendall. Still nice to see Carlo on top, though! Always fun to look at tables led by EFC managers, even when it’s a table of … EFC managers https://t.co/25Pjysvevp

We truly have a great manager and there are going to be ups and downs but we will be in a better place next season when he gets some of his own players in.

Means nothing. Look who’s in 2nd and 3rd place. And we know how there tenures ended. Meanwhile Howard Kendall is in 14th. He didn’t do too badly in the end.
