Richarlison ‘Key’ To Everton Victory Over Crystal Palace, Says Ancelotti

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti says that Richarlison’s explosiveness on the counter-attack was a key part of their victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Toffees moved into 7 th place in the Premier League with the 3-1 victory in which Richarlison and his compatriot Bernard were on the score sheet.

Ancelotti says Richarlison’s mobility is a key facet to unlocking opposition defences. “Before the second goal we were having problems covering Crystal Palace’s attacking options.

“We have to thank Richarlison because he scored a fantastic goal on the counter-attack,” Ancelotti told the Everton website.

“That was the key point and, after, our control of the game was good. It was an outstanding counter-attack, he is a fantastic player, really young and really important for us.

“It was an outstanding goal. Richarlison can also play on the left but we don’t have to give him a lot of defensive work.

“He has to be fresh when we have the ball, he can play right and left, but without thinking too much about defensive work.”
