Masked burglars broke into a Liverpool property on Friday evening, reported to be the home of Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti.

In the raid, the burglars stole a safe, but Merseyside Police have said that the occupants of the home were unharmed.

Merseyside Police said two men, wearing black waterproof clothing and black balaclavas, entered the property at Hall Road East, Crosby, on Friday evening. They were reportedly disturbed by Ancelotti’s daughter, according to The Liverpool Echo.

The force, which was alerted at around 6.35pm, said: "Officers attended and enquiries into the incident are ongoing. The property will be forensically examined and CCTV opportunities are being explored."

The Liverpool Echo reported that the home belongs to Ancelotti, who joined the Premier League club in December 2019.

On the other hand, Everton upped the pressure on Jose Mourinho with a thrilling 5-4 victory over Tottenham after extra-time to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals, as Manchester City eased into the last eight by beating Swansea on Wednesday.

Tottenham face a daunting trip to City in the Premier League on Saturday and defeat after a draining 120 minutes was the last thing Mourinho wanted.

Spurs have lost four of their last five games and one of three chances to end the club's 13-year wait to win a trophy in cup competitions is now gone.

"Attacking football only wins matches when you don't make more defensive mistakes than you create," said Mourinho, who once described a 5-4 result as a "hockey score".

"It was the mouse and the cat. The mouse was our defensive mistakes and the cat was us playing very well, scoring goals, but it wasn't enough."
