Only two months ago, Everton slipped into the relegation places. They looked destined for a tough fight for survival in the league, but the Toffees have turned it around significantly under the former Real Madrid boss.
Goals from Bernard, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin sealed all three points for the home side, as they maintained an unbeaten start to the year.
Everton are now only five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, and many fans will be hoping for a top-six finish this season.
The next four games for the Toffees after the short winter break – trips to Arsenal and Chelsea and home games against Manchester United and Liverpool – could prove to be vital for Ancelotti’s men.
Everton managed only 46% of possession, and attempted 14 shots of which they managed to keep eight on target, according to BBC Sport.
