Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is confident Everton can now compete with Chelsea for a place in the top four.

Ancelotti believes Everton are a totally different side from the one which was comprehensively beaten 4-0 at Stamford Bridge one year ago.

He said: “I think we are better. We have more knowledge and more belief in what we are doing.

“We can compete against Chelsea. It will be difficult, we know, because they are a fantastic team but we can compete.”

Asked whether it was a big test of their top-four credentials, the Italian added: “Of course. We have 12 tests until the end of the season.

“This against Chelsea is the first one but there are a lot of teams involved. A lot of strong teams.”
