Those of Carlo Ancelotti receive in the second round of the Carabao the weak Salford City, a team that plays in League Two, the fourth category of English football, to which they were promoted two campaigns ago from football unprofessional. Ancelotti is expected to be the alternative to the less common players and those who did not have the opportunity against him, before Saturday's duel against West Brom in the home debut of the 'toffees' in Premier Tottenham.

The participation of James Rodríguez is therefore not expected, who played almost the entire match against the 'spurs'. “I have not come here to be the big star, but to do my bit and help my teammates as much as possible. I'm hungry to win trophies & rdquor ;, explained the Colombian on the club's website, who has already seen that English football “is much more physical and has a harder style. It's something I have to learn & rdquor ;, he admitted.
