​Everton manager Ancelotti confirms Pickford will return for Man Utd

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti claims keeper Jordan Pickford will be back in goal for their game against Manchester United.

The Toffees benched Pickford for their 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday.

Robin Olsen started and put in an assured display.

But Ancelotti affirms his support for Pickford, suggesting the England shot stopper will be back in goal on Saturday.

"He played well and I can say to you he's going to play again - but not against United," Ancelotti told reporters of Olsen.

"In my career, I am used to rotating the goalkeepers. It happened at Real Madrid, it happened also at Napoli.

"It will not be the last time, of course."
