The Everton summer signing has not started well at Goodison Park.
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.
Caretaker manager David Unsworth needs to be relieved of his duties as soon as possible, with Everton needing a permanent appointment before it is too late.
After the match against Southampton we took to Twitter to see what Everton fans thought of Keane's latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
People slating Williams and Jagielka all season aswell, don't get me wrong they haven't been great but Keane has easily been worse .— Schneiderman (@SchneidermanEFC) November 26, 2017
I'm in the numb stage now. No feelings towards defeats anymore. You know it's coming, and you know it's going to be bad. Williams and Jagielka are done. Keane is a bottle job. Unsworth out of his depth. It doesn't look good. #efc— Paul - M - (@nsno1878) November 26, 2017
There has to be kids at Everton that are better than Williams and Keane and by kids I don’t mean u23s I mean u9s #efc— Mike Quinn (@mikedale1121) November 26, 2017

Keane going off is the only time defence becomes stronger when losing a defender— Dayne Murphy (@EFCDayne) November 26, 2017
