Everton boss Ancelotti: Davies plays like me - though I was better!

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti admits Tom Davies reminds him of himself as a player.

In a fans Q&A, he was asked which current player was most like him when he played for Roma and AC Milan and after careful consideration, picked out Blues' midfielder Davies.

"There are a lot of players with my same characteristics, a lot of players," he said.

"I was not a top player, not a top midfielder, but I was a good player. Not fast. I was strong in the contact, tactically good and to compare now, and if I have to compare in my team, I think Tom Davies can have the same characteristics.

"I have to say - and Tom knows - I had a better quality technically, but he is a good player and he can improve, for sure, because he is still really young."
