Everton head coach Carlo Ancelotti believes Manchester City’s ” lack of identity” makes them dominant.

Everton head coach Carlo Ancelotti has confessed how the Pep Guardiola team is dominating the Premier League. Ancelotti said Manchester City’s dominance is a result of what he terms as “Lack of identity.”

Ancelotti believes City’s ” lack of identity” makes them very unpredictable to deal with.
He said:

“I would like to talk about Manchester City. Manchester City are a fantastic team but they have no clear identity,”

“Sometimes they build up with three, sometimes with two, sometimes their right back goes to play as a holding midfielder.

“They have clear principles. That is the difference.

“Sometimes they don’t play with a centre-forward, they play with a No 10 as a centre-forward, so the identity of Manchester City is not clear.

“If they had a clear identity you would be more able to manage their shape, but the fact is they change their shape.

“What doesn’t change is their principles of keeping the ball, having possession and to show the quality they have. The principles never change.”

Ancelloti’s Everton takes on City in the weekend FA cup tie. City are hoping to go and win, as they try to win a quadruple for the first time.
