Carlo Ancelotti has his say on the controversial VAR decision that denied Everton the winner. [RBM]

Here is the exact wording of the Premier League’s excuses about why the goal or a penalty were not given. [RBM]

I work with really, really good professionals and they were there from the first moment. They helped me with everything, they helped my family as well, because it’s not easy,” says André Gomes on injury rehab. [EFC]

I think it’s a rumour, but if it’s not a rumour I can say Mason Holgate is an important part of the future of Everton. There is no possibility he can go to another club,” says Carlo Ancelotti on reported Manchester City interest. [Echo]

Carlo sees red.

Mason Holgate has made a great start under the new manager. The thing for him will be confidence, maturity and improving with experience. I have always been a massive fan of Calvert-Lewin. Now he is adding the goals. You look at the striker situation with England. And I spoke about Holgate’s passing and distribution from the back. I think they both will be in Gareth Southgate’s thoughts,” says Jamie Carragher. [EFC]

Yannick shows Pickford some props for crucial save late in the match.

I’ve loved my time here so far. Everything has been going well and I’m enjoying my time. I have had a chat with Carlo. He knows my feelings and he’s happy with the job I’m doing at the moment. The key is to concentrate on getting as far and as high as we possibly can this season, to obtain our objectives, and then that will be the time to talk about this in full at the end of the season,” says Djibril Sidibé.
