“The performance was good, the spirit was the most important part of this game, a good attitude, a good spirit and all the team showed this,” he said.

Carlo Ancelotti hinted the transfer business of Everton could now shift toward purchasing a centre-half after another defensive injury left them light at the back.



With Mason Holgate potentially out until the end of October with a toe injury – although Ancelotti is optimistic the 23-year-old will return sooner – Branthwaite’s ankle problem leaves him with only Michael Keane and Yerry Mina as his two fit senior central defenders.



“Holgate is out and Jarrad we don’t know his injury and how bad it is, we have to look tomorrow,” said Ancelotti.

Keane, Gylfi Sigurdsson and a late Moise Kean penalty set up a third-round tie at Fleetwood and even though they laboured somewhat and took 32 shots – just eight of which were on target – Ancelotti was satisfied with the display of a team showing 10 changes from Sunday’s win at Tottenham.

Even if Branthwaite is not out for too long, Ancelotti wants another option in defence.

“The Holgate update is that he doesn’t need the surgery so maybe he can recover earlier than normal but I think we can manage until Mason comes back with three centre-backs no problem.” The Italian was keen on a loan deal for Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori, but he is also attracting interest from Rennes and Everton’s pursuit has gone somewhat cold.
