Mason Holgate

Holgate has made the left centre-back position his own this term

Holgate made his 100th league appearance in English football following the restart, and the young centre-back has grown in stature, getting better each week.

Holgate has focused on improving his ball-playing skills under Ancelotti. Of the four centre-backs to have featured for Everton this season, Holgate has completed the most number of dribbles 10, underlining his confidence to bring the ball out from the back.

Having signed a new five-year contract in March, the 23-year-old's development has been one of the highlights of Everton's season.

Michael Keane

Keane has emerged as Everton's senior centre-back this season under Ancelotti having started 27 of his 30 Premier League appearances.

The defender has made an impressive 87 headed clearances - the sixth highest in the division - while no Everton player has made more than his 25 blocks.

Keane has also won 128 of his aerial duels, ranked 15th across all Premier League players this term, meaning Ancelotti may well have thought twice about whether signing a new centre-back is a priority this summer.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored twice as Everton beat Newcastle on Saturday

The 23-year-old forward has cemented his place as the focal point in this Everton team having played in 35 of the 37 league games this season. Having got off the mark against Bournemouth in September, Calvert-Lewin hasn't looked back and has notched a career-best 15 goals in all competitions to date.

The Englishman was on the brink of a national call-up and his maiden senior international cap would have been fully merited having scored goals in 11 Premier League appearances under Ancelotti. A failure to notch since the restart will be the one bone of contention but his movement has still facilitated goals for his team-mates.


Richarlison has produced consistent displays for Everton this season

A particularly pleasing aspect in Everton's season has been Calvert-Lewin's blossoming relationship with Richarlison. The pair have scored 13 goals in 17 Premier League starts together under Ancelotti, with their improved understanding on show during a fine goal in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace back in February.

The 23-year-old has made significant improvements for Everton this term - over the last two seasons, only Neymar (28) has scored more goals in the top five European leagues among Brazilians than Richarlison (26).

Lucas Digne

Lucas Digne

Only Trent Alexander-Arnold (238) and Andrew Robertson (163) have produced more crosses from open play than Digne this season.

With 141 to his name, the Frenchman has more than double the number of open-play deliveries than Djibril Sidibe in second place, while no team-mate has created more chances (70) - 20 more than Gylfi Sigurdsson in second.

With so many crosses, it is no surprise that Digne boasts the highest number of assists this term with seven in what has been at times a challenging second album following his stellar breakthrough campaign.
