Carlo Ancelotti has played down suggestions Theo Walcott could be set for a transfer-window exit from Everton, but insists he is unfazed at not picking the experienced winger.

The 31-year-old former Arsenal forward has not featured in the last three games and was left out of Ancelotti's squad as they continued their perfect start to the season with a fine 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday, not travelling to Selhurst Park with the rest of the players.

Walcott, who arrived from Arsenal in 2018, has made just one appearance for the Toffees this season, in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Salford City.
