Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti admits signing a centre-back before the end of the transfer window has become a priority after Jarrad Branthwaite sustained an injury in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Salford.

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.



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

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

"We did everything we possibly could to try and get a result, we didn't take a backwards step and I would like to think the players will take great confidence from the levels they can perform at and if we take that into our league schedules, we'll win games."

"I felt we deserved that with the way we played and the work ethic we put into the game and the discipline we showed tactically," he said.
