Everton edged Tottenham with a thriller clash that produced nine goals after extra time.
The victory which ended 5-4 in favour of the Meyerside saw Ancelloti’s men triumph to keep their hopes of an FA Cup alive.
It is 25 years since Everton won the FA Cup, that victory against Spurs was significant.
Though both teams dangled around but Everton had made it clear that they have interest in the FA Cup.
Everton Asst. Boss who spoke with BBC Sport after the event said :
“It was an exciting game. Tottenham started better than us and got the lead but we got ourselves back into the game.
“At 3-1 you’re thinking ‘get to half-time at 3-1’ and then they score to put us on the back foot. Exciting game, fantastic.
“It’s 25 years since we won the FA Cup. It would be great to get to the final. It keeps your season going. We want to do well in the Premier League but the FA Cup is the one we want.”
Tottenham were probably hoping to build on their last victory, but losing out means their hope of pursuing a silverware at the FA Cup has come to an end.
