Everton growing under Carlo Ancelotti with a win over Southampton

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti hopes Monday’s 1-0 win over Southampton acts as a springboard in their bid to bring Champions League football to Goodison Park next season.

Richarlison scored for the third successive match inside the first 10 minutes to move Carlo Ancelotti’s side within two points of fourth-placed West Ham with a match in hand.

But, while Everton’s worst home run since 1958 was brought to an end, the pain for Saints continued with just one draw and eight defeats in their last nine league matches leaving them seven points above the bottom three and wondering just where their next win will come from.

Speaking afterwards to Sky Sports, Ancelotti said: “To fight for European places we need to improve the home run, this performance and victory can help us have a better run at home.
