Richarlison scored a wonderful goal as Everton continued their Premier League revival under Ancelotti.
The Italian veteran hailed the impact of the Goodison Park faithful and admitted his side did well for the majority of the game.
He told Match of the Day: “Quite happy. For 60 minutes the performance was good, at the end it was normal to suffer a little bit at 1-0 up.
“We suffered but we were determined to have three points at the end and this is the most important thing.”
“The response of the players was good. The support of the stadium is really important for us. When we play here we want to feel at home and I hope the next game will be the same because it is really important.”
On Theo Walcott’s penalty appeal: “I think it was a penalty, I’m surprised, I think he tried to score and didn’t fall down. Usually if he falls it is a penalty I don’t know. The work of the referee is not easy but maybe with VAR it could be more simple.”
On Richarlison: “A fantastic goal from Richarlison. He has fantastic qualities. He can play everywhere.”
