Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti says he’ll give Toffees on-loan goalkeeper Robin Olsen game time once he’s back from injury.
The 31-year-old has made five Premier League appearances this season, including three consecutive games in February.
Olsen has also featured three times in the FA Cup and once in the League Cup, providing Jordan Pickford with respite and competition.
The Toffees number one has been in great form recently, helping his side to three wins and three clean sheets in a row in the league.
Pickford delivered assured displays in the wins over Liverpool, Southampton and West Brom en route to fourth in the table.
Ancelotti has promised that when Olsen is fit again, he will rotate his goalkeepers again, in order to keep Pickford “fresh”.
“In goal, Jordan is doing well, because I take him out [rotates goalkeepers] it removes a little bit of pressure,” the Italian told the Everton media team.
“Robin Olsen is injured, when he is back, he can play some games to keep Jordan fresh and good like he is in this moment.”
Olsen has done well at Everton since joining on loan from Roma in October, delivering good displays and getting the best out of Pickford, who’s now got strong competition.
It’s great that Ancelotti plans to give him some game time and also rest Pickford from time to time, very much a win-win situation.
