Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti has asserted that he wants the Toffees to eventually be able to challenge the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and compete for the league title.

The Merseysiders, like Tottenham, made a poor start to the season and parted ways with Marco Silva just a few months into the campaign.

However, the team’s form has picked up considerably since the arrival of Ancelotti, with the club now sitting in 11th place and having a realistic chance of qualifying for the Europa League next season.

Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho admitted during lockdown that he is already dreaming about bringing the Premier League title to North London.

It appears Ancelotti is just as ambitious, as the Everton boss revealed his dream of seeing the club competing with the likes of Spurs at the summit of the league.

When asked what his ambitions at Goodison Park were, the Italian told Sky Sports: “Everton has to be competitive and fight for the first position of the Premier League with Liverpool, with Chelsea, with Tottenham, with Manchester United, with all the big teams.

“I don’t know how long it takes but I hope that soon we are able to compete.

“We have a young squad with young players with a lot of skills, a lot of ability. I think just the fact that we can improve this skill and this ability can give us more opportunity to stay at the top.”

While I do not think Everton have a shot at finishing in the top four next season, they are certainly not as far away from challenging as people think. Reports seem to indicate that they are going for a similar profile of targets that we are this summer. We cannot allow them to beat us to the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, as we may just be looking over our shoulders next season.
