Everton supporters unhappy with defender’s comments

Having taken just seven points from seven Premier League matches this season, Everton currently sit down in 16th position in the table.

Ronald Koeman’s summer spending spree was supposed to bring a successful campaign for the Toffees, but a difficult start to the 2017-18 campaign has led to supporter unrest.

Indeed, Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Burnley left the Merseyside club hovering above the relegation zone, which is not exactly what the Everton owners would have had in mind when Koeman was given significant backing during the summer.

Everton have also only collected one point from their two Europa League matches this season, which has placed more pressure on Koeman.

Toffees defender Michael Keane gave an interview to the club’s official website earlier this week where he insisted that the team’s form would improve in the coming weeks.

However, the England international’s quotes did not go down too well with the Everton supporters, who are firmly of the opinion that actions speak louder than words.
