Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti admits both the team’s strategy and the players’ attitude were wrong in the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea

Carlo Ancelotti said ‘everything went wrong’ for Everton in their 4-0 defeat to Chelsea, with Frank Lampard hailing the contribution of Billy Gilmour.

It was Ancelotti’s first return to Stamford Bridge since his departure as Chelsea boss in 2011, but it resulted in the joint-heaviest league defeat of his managerial career, equalling a 4-0 loss against Atletico Madrid as Real Madrid manager in February 2015.

It was an unusual result for Everton under Ancelotti, who have seen an upturn in performances and results since his arrival, but the Italian blamed most aspects of Sunday’s performance for the defeat.

He said: “What went wrong? Everything was wrong! From the first minute until the end, we were not in the game. We were slow, we were not compact and it’s difficult to say something [specific] because everything was wrong today.
