The Irishman told OTB Sports:
“There’s a big, big plus for Everton [Dominic] Colvert-Lewin is doing what he is doing. She’s an old fashion center-forward – big, strong, brave and she’s getting supplies.
“[Ancelotti] Corner kicks, free kicks and a wide range of balls – the ball is reaching him at every opportunity.
“I believe [Duncan] Ferguson is working with him, and he’s also gained confidence. He had this reputation as a good boy, but he didn’t score goals.
“Now that he has a few under his belt, it gives him confidence that he can do it. He’s a player.
“I think Everton could be the closest team to Liverpool this season. They just need a number of players; if injured, [Ancelotti] Slightly thinner on the players.
“I think Everton is the real direction now.”
