Everton have uploaded some training footage from a recent session at Finch Farm and the video has revealed some surprises.
The Blues are working hard as they head towards their first Premier League match in more than two months. They will face off against bitter rivals Liverpool in what was supposed to be the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. However, talks of the fixture being hosted at a neutral ground could be a reality for the title-chasing Reds (via Liverpool ECHO).
Should Everton give Leighton Baines a new contract?
Everton will also be without Yerry Mina, who suffered a thigh injury last week and will miss the resumption of the league (Sky Sports).
Fans seem to have perked up seeing the training footage, however and many are in awe at how Michael Keane performed in front of goal. One supporter has commented: ‘Michael Keane the new Messi?’ as the video shows the centre-back evading fellow defenders and netting goal after goal.
Michael Keane the new Messi?

Read some more replies from Everton fans here, with the majority loving seeing a side of Keane that they perhaps didn’t know existed – indeed he has only ever netted 16 goals in his professional career whilst he has completed no successful dribbles this season according to WhoScored:
