Everton are set to face Arsenal on Friday, as the Premier League action resumes.

Last week the Blues played a 2-2 draw with Tottenham as both Harry Kane and Gylfi Sigurdsson netted a brace for their sides.

Ahead of the Friday’s match head coach Carlo Ancelotti has talked to the press providing injury boost, sharing his thoughts on the controversial Super League and more.

The Toffees boss confirmed Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Bernard are all fit to face Arsenal.

Ancelotti on the European Super League:

“My immediate reaction was they are joking, this is a joke!

“For every supporter of football it was a strange day, a surprise. We heard about the Super League in the past few moths but I was sure it was not going to happen. What can I say? They were wrong.

“The most important part, they wanted to build a competition without sporting merit. This is not acceptable. If you are good, you play football as a professional – if not, you’re not a professional. They were wrong, full stop.

“I’m not the right person to judge if they should be punishment. Everyone can make mistakes, but I cannot say if they have to be punished or not.”

On Spurs game, Everton boss said:

“Honestly after the game I was happy about the performance. We were more aggressive, played with more intensity and this is the format we want to use in this kind of game.”

On the upcoming rivals, Arsenal, the Italian said:

“Yeah it’s a really important game, not decisive but important. I think we are ready. It’s true that we didn’t have a good moment in the last month, but now we are much better.

“It’s going to be a different game. It’s true we defended strong. Everton has changed in this period, and also Arsenal. I think it will be a different game.”
