Everton had little time to work on new formation in win over Fulham, says Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti claims Everton had little time to work on their new formation in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Fulham.
The Toffees ended a three-match losing streak thanks to goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (2) and Abdoulaye Doucoure at Craven Cottage.

Everton lined up in a 3-4-3 formation for the first time this season, ditching Ancelotti’s preferred 4-3-3 shape.
He told talkSPORT: “From the physical aspect, we lost players that were involved in the international break like Richarlison, James [Rodriguez], Allan, and we lost a little bit of quality.
“We tried to change it a little, we didn’t have a lot of time to work on this.
“Sometimes it worked well. The possibility to have more [players] in front, forward, [Lucas] Digne and [Alex] Iwobi [as wing-backs] gave us more possibilities in the box.
“We have to work to be more compact in the defensive line, but we have time to work this week.”

Everton were beaten by Southampton, Newcastle and Manchester United before the November international break.
But Ancelotti insists his side have put their poor form behind them.
He added: “We were surprised by the start we’ve had and we were surprised by the three consecutive defeats.
“Now we are back to win and we know we have to work and have consistency.
“I think that the bad period is gone.”
