Cape Town - Carlo Ancelotti was pleased to see Dominic Calvert-Lewin help him get off to a winning start as Everton boss but he sees room for improvement.
The 22-year-old's diving header 10 minutes from time settled a fairly dull game at home to Burnley, a 1-0 win which highlighted the Toffees' lack of a cutting edge despite them dominating possession.
It was his eighth goal of the season, with only two arriving across his previous eight matches.
"He is a fantastic striker in my opinion, strong with the head," said Ancelotti after three points lifted them to 13th in the table, seven points behind sixth-placed Sheffield United.
"Where he can improve, and where he has to improve, is when we have the ball - he has to be more focused on the goal.
"He is really generous so he moves up and down, right and left, he has to be more focused."
Nevertheless the former Chelsea boss was able to reflect on a "special day" after making his Premier League return.
He took over from caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson, who had claimed five points from his three matches in charge, and while this game had none of that energy and fight the Italian was happy enough.
"I think the spirit of the team was good. It was a special game with a lot of long balls but I think we defended well," he added.
"After that we tried to do some combinations in front but we were a little bit slow from the back in the first half.
"In the end the performance was good - not top but a good performance.
"For me the reception here at Goodison Park was a special day, absolutely."
