Many Everton fans have been slamming the performance of Michael Keane in their 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
The former Burnley defender endured a nightmare at Goodison Park against the Reds, as goals from Jordan Henderson, Diogo Jota and a Mo Salah brace were more than enough to give Jurgen Klopp’s team all three points, after Demarai Gray had got the hosts back into the game at 2-1 shortly before half-time.
Should Keane start for Everton?
Keane was simply given no time on the ball at all, as he managed a mere 58% passing accuracy throughout the match, among the lowest out of his teammates, and was guilty of giving possession away 14 times (SofaScore).
Nonetheless, by conceding four goals at home against his team’s arch-rivals, the Everton man was always going to be subject to criticism.

“Still waiting for a game where Michael Keane doesn’t look like he doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing”
“Michael Keane is an embarrassment, worst CB, he’s up there with Kroldrup”
“Michael Keane would struggle in the Championship”
“How Michael Keane is still in an Everton shirt after all these years? My god.”
“Michael Keane is a useless slob”
“Just over 1 minute in and the stadium is reminded that MICHAEL KEANE is NOT a professional footballer going by that corner…Another wage thief !!!”
