(Video) Solskjaer praises Ancelotti’s work at Everton and Toffees’ star integral to Italian’s plans

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked at today’s press conference if he’s been impressed with Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Carlo Ancelotti’s main man up front has been scoring goals with the side in-form, currently sat in 4th, but they go into Saturday’s game on the back of two defeats — like Manchester United.

Solskjaer needs a response from his players after two shocking performances against Arsenal in the league and Istanbul in the Champions League.

More questions are being asked about his future than ever before — Solskjaer knows another defeat this weekend could lead to the end of his time at Old Trafford. Maybe not immediately but things are not looking good.

Everton pose a threat this weekend because they’re a good side with a very good manager.

Solskajer was asked specifically about Calvert-Lewin, but he took the chance to give Ancelotti credit for turning things around at Goodison Park.

“Not just Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the whole team, set-up,” Solskjaer said, as per the Manchester Evening News.

“When Carlo came in, that’s a manager everyone admires, players, coaches, other managers, he’s had a fantastic career and you starting having a look. [sic]

“They didn’t have a very good period after restart but now you can see what he’s been working on, good pre-season, he used restart to look at his team and I’ve been impressed.

“Calvert-Lewin has been part of that and is integral to their play.”
