Will Everton be playing in a European competition next season?
Yes, we will just about make it
No, maybe it'll be the year after
The defeat against Mikel Arteta’s Gunners comes as the third of the Ancelotti era in all competitions, with the others coming against Manchester City and Liverpool (per Sky Sports).
However, with the Toffees having won five, drawn two and lost two in the Premier League since the Boxing Day victory over Burnley (per Sky Sports), many supporters were keeping their faith in Ancelotti.
The megafone blues are still getting Europe

Trust this man to sort the mess that the last 4 managers have created. We are a bang average squad and he has already made us so much better. Could have scored another 4/5 goals today if not for wasted chances
