In the fourth round of this season’s Premier League match at 22 o’clock yesterday evening, Beijing time, Everton beat Brighton 4-2 at home. With the victory of this game, Everton, known as the "Taffy", has won 4 consecutive victories this season, accumulating 12 points, ranking first in the Premier League standings. At the same time, he has won seven consecutive victories in all competitions this season. Everton can get such a gratifying result, in the author's opinion, it is related to the team's head coach Ancelotti, it is also related to the team's new aid Ronaldo, and it is related to the opponents in these seven games.
Since playing Ancelotti on December 11 last year, after leaving get out of class from the Serie A powerhouse Naples, only 11 days later, he picked up the coach of the Premier League powerhouse Everton and started the transfer from Serie A to coach the Premier League team journey of. This is Ancelotti's return to vocational education in the Premier League after a lapse of 8 years and 7 months since leaving Chelsea in May 2011. Although during his previous coaching of Chelsea, Ancelotti won the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Community Shield. However, after so many years, Everton coached a team whose strength and player lineup could not be compared with Chelsea, unavoidably let the outside world think that Ancelotti's coaching career has begun to decline.
However, when Ancelotti joined Everton, he quickly adjusted the team's tactical play to defensive counterattack. The team lineup was mostly 4-4-2. The purpose was very simple and clear. To survive the decline in performance, the most basic goal is to successfully relegation first. Although Everton did not qualify for the European War in the top six of the Premier League after Ancelotti took over, he also completed the relegation goal well and finally ranked 12th in the Premier League standings.
This season has made a comeback. Under the leadership of Ancelotti, he has brought in Ronaldo who could not play in Real Madrid. You know, when Ancelotti coached Real Madrid, he was very familiar with Ronaldo's personal technical characteristics and abilities. In Real Madrid when Ancelotti was in charge, Ronaldo was one of the team's main frameworks. Unfortunately, since Ancelotti left Real Madrid, among his successors, whether it is Mourinho or Zidane, the use of Ronaldo's classic midfielder has been put on the shelf. Ronaldo, who couldn't play in Real Madrid, began a life of drifting on loan in the years before joining Everton. His performance has been up and down, and it is difficult to maintain a high level of performance. In the summer window of this season, he was sold by Real Madrid again. It's just that the target who took over this time is his mentor Ancelotti in Real Madrid.
Originally, the outside world was generally skeptical about Ronaldo's move to the Premier League. As we all know, Ronaldo's physical fitness is not outstanding. In the high-tempo and high-confrontation Premier League, many people think that Ronaldo can't get a foothold. However, after Ronaldo joined Everton, Ancelotti quickly adjusted the team's tactical play, from the previous 4-4-2 dominated formation to the current 4-3-3 formation. , Also changed from defensive counterattack to active offense. Ronaldo, whose main foot is the left foot, is placed at the right wing or right forward position, giving full play to Ronaldo's ability to dribble and hold the ball, especially when passing threats on the offensive end, or inward shooting. It can be said that Ancelotti opened J Luo's instruction manual. In 5 games this season, Ronaldo contributed 3 goals and 3 assists, which is more than the total number of goals he created last season.
Of course, Everton has won seven games in all competitions this season and achieved such an impressive record. In addition to the coaching of the team's head coach Ancelotti, it is related to the outstanding performance of the new aid Ronaldo, and it is also related to these seven games. The opponent of the game is related. The author is not pouring cold water. Among the opponents in these seven games, in addition to the stronger teams of Tottenham and West Ham, the strength of the other four opponent teams is still quite different from Everton. It is still too early to talk about Everton reaching the top four in the Premier League to win the Champions League and even winning the Premier League title.
