Everton's new boss - Carlo Ancelotti - wants Everton fans to keep their calm when it comes to Moise Kean. The Toffees bagged the former Juventus striker for £24.5 million this summer. Since his move to Everton, the 19-year-old has not scored a single goal in the 16 appearances he has made so far this season.

Things got worse for Kean when he was substituted by Everton's then-interim manager Duncan Ferguson. He was there on the pitch for just 19 minutes against Manchester United. However, Ancelotti looks optimistic about Moise Kean. He compared his spell to that of Juventus' legend Platini. He initially struggled after he joined the Old Lady from St-Etienne in 1982.
