Everton boss Ancelotti: Pickford accepted Olsen decision

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti was happy with Robin Olsen's performance for defeat at Newcastle United.

The manager praised the performance of the 30-year-old and reiterated that Jordan Pickford would be back in goal for the visit of Manchester United to Goodison Park next week.

Ancelotti told his post-match press conference: “The performance of Olsen was good, like usual.

“He's a good goalkeeper, he's a goalkeeper with experience. He was in good control of the game.

“The reaction of Jordan was the reaction of a player who understands he was not going to play today, because I explained to him really clearly that I wanted to give an opportunity for Robin to play.

“He [Pickford] will be back for the Manchester United game."
