Loads of Everton fans have been left in awe of Carlo Ancelotti after his perfect management against Newcastle on Saturday.
Oh how Toffees fans have waited for a tactician like this. Ancelotti made five changes from the side that beat Burnley, seemingly going all-out-attack at St. James’ Park.
Moise Kean was deployed just behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin while Richarlison and Theo Walcott started on the wings, and the hosts just couldn’t deal with it in the opening half an hour.
After Calvert-Lewin had given the Toffees a deserved lead however, Steve Bruce’s side came back into the game and even looked the better side at times.
Sensing the match getting away from his side, Ancelotti brought Fabian Delph on after Fabian Schar’s equaliser, and his team immediately had more control in the middle of the park.
Calvert-Lewin then tapped home from a Richarlison cross to wrap up the three points, and the boss again made the right move by bringing on Seamus Coleman and Yerry Mina to shore things up at the back.

Loving Carlo’s tactical changes, Coleman on to help Sidibe with that Willems who was dangerous, Mina on to deal with Carroll for the last 10 hoofball, Delph on when we were getting overran in midfield and needed to silence the crowd👌 that’s the difference between good & elite

Don Carlo, absolutely breezing the game from the touchline whilst Big DCL continues the charge to the golden boot. You love to see it.
