Loading… Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti, also dismissed speculation defender Mason Holgate could be on his way to Manchester City. De Laurentiis opted to sack Ancelotti after a poor start to the season but regrets the move The young defender was linked with City in the morning’s papers with the Daily Mirror saying Pep Guardiola was preparing a summer move for Holgate. Ancelotti though shut down the talk at his press conference on Friday. “I think it’s a rumour, but if it’s not a rumour I can say Mason Holgate is an important part of the future of Everton,” he said. “There is no possibility he can go to another club. Zero possibility, like my friend (Jose) Mourinho says: ‘Zero’.” Ancelotti also insists there is no pressure on Andre Gomes to produce instant performances with the Portugal international in line for his first start since an horrific ankle injury. The 26-year-old made his comeback as a substitute in last weekend’s defeat at Arsenal after a fracture dislocation of his right ankle on November 3. Such has been the lack of creativity in midfield, Gomes’ 31-minute cameo at the Emirates had fans raving about his return but Ancelotti does not want him to feel he has to deliver immediately.

He trained well, normally, and he can play. I have to talk to him before the game. “He did really well. I was surprised by the fact that it seemed he was not out for three months because he played with confidence, without any fear. “Also for him it was useful to play and he has shown more confidence this week compared to last week. “There is no-one who puts pressure on him. The club absolutely not. Myself absolutely not. “Everyone followed the instruction of the medical staff and he is ready to play and everyone has total confidence in him so there is no pressure.
