Everton vs FulhamEnglish Premier League, KO: 19:00 Feb 14, 2021, Goodison Park
While Toffees fans will be dreaming of a first Cup triumph since 1995 in the wake of that incredible 5-4 victory over Spurs, the canny Italian will have his sights fixed on breaking into the top four.
His side headed into the weekend just three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool with two games in hand and it would be a huge feather in Ancelotti's cap if he delivered a Champions League slot in his first full season.
And a Fulham side scrapping for their lives at the foot of the table will be ready to take advantage of any complacency from Ancelotti's players.
The Cottagers have gone 12 league games without a win but they men have drawn eight of those matches and Scott Parker has made them much harder to beat.
How the bookies view it
It's no great surprise to see Everton as odds-on favourites with every firm and they are a best 22/23 at SBK who price Fulham at 33/10 and the draw at 14/5.
Recent head to head
Everton have won four of the last five meetings, including a 3-2 triumph at Craven Cottage earlier this season (below). Fulham's record at Goodison is dismal, losing on their last 12 visits, and you have to go back to 1975 for their last win there.
Players to watch
Ancelotti (below) looks set to be without top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin after he picked up a hamstring injury in the Cup win over Spurs. The burden for goals will fall on Richarlison and the Brazilian is a decent 23/10 for anytime scorer with TonyBet.
Fulham have drawn a blank in four of their last five games and a lack of firepower is hurting them. But Ademola Lookman will have a point to prove against his old club and the forward is 7/2 with Bet365 for a goal.
Anything else catch the eye?
Despite Fulham's recent lack of goals I'm tempted to back a few thrills in this one, with the Toffees conceding 11 times in their last four games. Our man Slips Tips cashed in by backing Harry Kane to score against them in midweek and over 2.5 match goals here looks decent value at evens with TonyBet.
The second period has been the highest-scoring half in five of the last six meetings so it could pay to back a repeat here at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
Fulham have collected the most cards in each of their last three games with Everton. They are 3/4 with William Hill to pick up the first card here which looks a good option for accumulators and 10/11 with McBookie to land the most cards.
