A succession of corners were repelled by a combination of strong defending and sound goalkeeping from Jordan Pickford.
“When you are 1-0 up, the last minutes are always the same," said Ancelotti.
“The opposing team puts a lot of power… we controlled it well.
“Pickford was good and really secure.
“It is a very good week and very good performance.
“We were focused defensively and and had a good combination in front."
