Carlo Ancelotti admits that Everton’s away record against the Premier League big six makes him want to cry.

But the Everton manager is ready to crush a winless streak that goes back more than six years and an incredible run of 37 matches, after working on a victorious mentality in training.

Everton visit Arsenal tomorrow desperate to end their unenviable run against the recognised six big hitters of the top flight.

They have not won at the Emirates, or against Liverpool , City, Chelsea , United or Spurs since a victory at Old Trafford under Roberto Martinez in 2013.

And when that stat was pointed out to him, Ancelotti said: “So not one victory? Wow! I’m going to cry! It’s time to win then!”

His humour hides a ruthless streak though. The Italian is well aware of the statistic and he is also aware that to end the run – which contains 25 defeats and 12 draws – his side need to work on a ruthless mentality.

That has meant planning only for the win at Arsenal and no negative tactics. “You have to change the penalty, of course,” he said.

“You have to give to the players the idea and the confidence that we can do it, that we can win. Of course, we have prepared for the game to try and win.

“It will be difficult, that’s normal, because Arsenal are much better at this moment. But we have worked with the idea of winning.”

Ancelotti also sees the bigger picture. He has challenged his side to set out their European ambitions, not only with a win at Arsenal but by showing exactly where they are in relation to the top Premier League sides.

They face the Gunners, Chelsea, United and Liverpool in their next four games and he said: “We want to think about Europe next season.

“It is obvious to say that these next four games [Arsenal, Chelsea, United, Liverpool] are vital for us. They are really important. The more points we can get the more possibility of qualifying for the Europa League.

“The players know this that these are really important games, they are more important than others, because in these four games you can test how good we are. I think we are good but after that it is results that judge you.”

Ancelotti has indicated he will recall midfielder Andre Gomes after a serious long term injury, as he believes the Portugal star will benefit form starting.]
