Everton finished sixth in the Premier League after beating Leeds United 2-1 on Elland Road on Wednesday night.
Goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave the Toffees a hard-fought win over the Yorkshire club. Raphinha scored after the break to reduce the deficit but Everton managed to maintain the lead and take all three points.
It was a brilliant performance on Carlo Ancelotti’s part, and Andre Gomes and Abdoulaye Doucoure made a huge impression.
Doucoure, who joined Watford that summer for a reported £ 20m fee, took to Twitter after the game to share his reaction. He tweeted:
Big win away from home We carry on and fight 💙 pic.twitter.com/NnupfRwnPj

The 28-year-old midfielder has been really impressive for Everton this season.
He has scored one goal and has made two assists in 19 Premier League games so far. The Frenchman made a tackle, two important passes, two interceptions and was a tireless runner throughout the game.
The Toffees have been very impressive away from home this season as they have four straight wins for the first time since 1985.
The win on Elland Road will bring tough games to the Toffees (Tottenham, Liverpool and Southampton, Chelsea) in quick succession.
