When Everton signed Michael Keane from Burnley back in the summer it was hailed as a brilliant piece of business from the Toffees. However fast-forward a few months and, while Sean Dyche's men are flying, the Toffees are shipping goals at an alarming rate and cannot buy a victory right now.

Keane would not have envisaged the struggles that has followed his move to Goodison Park, with Everton rooted firmly in the bottom half of the table and looking every inch relegation fodder based on their recent showings.

At 24, and after some brilliant campaigns at Turf Moor, Keane should be excelling in this Everton back-line; instead he is causing consternation among fans who simply do not know what has gone wrong.

One massive mistake for Everton was selling Romelu Lukaku without bringing in a suitable replacement and their lack of goals has cost them.  That said, they have shipped nine in their last two games and no decent striker would have prevented that.
