Carlo Ancelotti has sung the praises of both his players and the 2,000 Everton supporters inside Goodison Park this evening.
“I’m really pleased to win in front of our supporters. There were only 2,000 but they’ve have seen a fantastic match.
The supporters impact was really strong, we were really pleased. It is really important to have their support and it is a totally different environment with them here.
“Defensively we did really well. There was a fantastic force from our midfielders, Allan, Doucoure, Sigurdsson. The team sacrificed and that was the target. Against top teams like Chelsea, you have to sacrifice.
“We were dangerous on the counter-attack, we didn’t concede many opportunities and I think we deserved to win.
