Everton fans on Twitter just aren’t having Leighton Baines’ latest comments

The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern have been responding to comments made by fan-favourite, Leighton Baines on his defensive teammate, Michael Keane. The 25-year-old is currently in his debut season at Goodison Park after moving from Turf Moor last summer and has been described Keane’s recent form as a huge positive for Everton. You can read Baines’ comments on the Everton website.

Keane made the move to Everton when confidence when extremely high at the club. The defender had gained a number of suitors with his performances at Burnley the season before and was one of a number of high profile signings brought in by Ronald Koeman to help the club fight in both the Europa League and the Premier League. The hype was shortlived though. Everton bowed out of the Europa League at the group stage and found themselves languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League, housing a number of high profile flops.

It would be harsh to directly criticise Keane as he’d been marred by having the out-of-form Ashley Williams drag him down for much of the season. The Manchester United academy graduate has made 26 league appearances for The Toffees in this campaign and 34 in all competitions in what’s been an average season for him. The 25-year-old will be hoping he can build on this campaign with a more successful one next season. The central defender would’ve been hoping a spot in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad could be his this summer, although the collective failures of Everton look to have cost him his chance.

With that in mind, here’ our resident Toffees’ reaction to Baines’ praise of Keane:
