MCI vs EVE Dream11: Carlo Ancelotti faces his biggest test yet as an Everton manager as he puts his 100% record on the line at the home of defending champions Manchester City in the Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium.
More than a few eyebrows were raised that why the manager of Carlo Ancelotti's pedigree would accept to take the Everton job at the time when the club is going through a major transition. But needless to say, Ancelotti is a major coup for Everton and his appointment shows that the club owners are serious about their claims that they aim to challenge for the trophies.
That said, it's too early to draw any conclusion on whether Ancelotti is having a desirous impact on Everton, for he will need at least two transfer window to imprint his own philosophy on the squad.
Pep Guardiola though needs a restart of sorts at the club after falling behind in the title race this season. As things stand, City are 14 points behind Liverpool in the title race having played a game more than Jurgen Klopp's men.
