Loads of Everton fans on Twitter have ripped into defender Michael Keane following their Carabao Cup quarter-final exit against Leicester City at Goodison Park.
The Merseyside outfit were looking to advance to the semi-finals of the competition on Wednesday, but they fell 2-0 behind in the first half on Merseyside, with James Maddison and Jonny Evans scoring the goals.
Keane was particularly poor for the latter’s goal as he was caught ball-watching and lost the Northern Ireland international, allowing him to finish.
Despite getting two goals back after the break through Tom Davies and Leighton Baines and taking the tie to penalties, they couldn’t advance to the final four of the competition.
Things didn’t get much better for the England international in the second half though despite the fightback, and some members of the Goodison Park faithful were quick to crucify him for his display.
Strong words like “horrendous”, “awful” and “liability” are all present below, for a player that has been criticised by supporters on other occasions already this term too.

Replacing Keane with a decent CB has got to be priority. He’s an absolute liability, switches off every game #efc

Others decided to focus on what Carlo Ancelotti, who it is reported by Sky Sports will be confirmed as the club’s permanent new manager before the weekend, should do with the 26-year-old.
