Everton fans are finally starting to see the best of Michael Keane, and the young Englishman had another fine performance in the win against Newcastle.
There hasn’t been too much to cheer about at Goodison Park this season, as fans are desperate to see some production from last summer’s big money signings.
Gylfi Sigurdsson showed flashes of brilliance before his injury but was largely underwhelming, and Davy Klaassen has hardly seen the pitch.
Jordan Pickford can certainly hold his head up high though, and now Michael Keane is starting to prove himself as well.
The four-cap England international had a difficult start to his Goodison career, but was forced to play in some pretty makeshift defences due to injuries.
His fantastic recent form continued in Monday’s 1-0 win over Newcastle, as the 25 year-old registered three interceptions, nine clearances, and won five aerial duels.
If his defensive display wasn’t good enough, Keane also made one key pass, while recording an impressive 85% pass accuracy.
The young defender did lose his concentration a couple of times in the second half, but overall it was another strong showing from the ever-improving Toffee.
Everton fans, has Keane been a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
