A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to praise the performance of Toffees defender Michael Keane yesterday as Carlo Ancelotti’s charges brought all three points back to Goodison Park.
Everton, buoyed by the point they claimed against Merseyside rivals Liverpool at the weekend, went to Norwich City on Wednesday evening and claimed a 1-0 win, courtesy of Keane’s goal.
The Toffees centre-back, who put in a good display against the Reds, went one better against the Canaries with a solid performance capped off by the match-winner.
Keane dealt with Norwich’s threat well thanks to his strength and aerial ability, and on 55 minutes, thumped home a header from Lucas Digne’s corner.
While the 27-year-old has copped some flak from Everton supporters in the past, many were pleased with how well he’s performed since the Premier League resumed.
Below is some of the social media reaction to the 6ft 3in ace’s display at Carrow Road:
Keane and Holgate sturdy at the back, midfield better with sig and w/o Davies. DCL growing stronger, feel like we could cause more damage with bit more pressing cause when we do it we look dangerous, but what do I know haha! Ancelotti knows best ?

Been very critical of him in the past but Ancelotti football suits Keane.

Pleased for Michael Keane – that should do his confidence no harm at all MOTM and the winning goal

Carlo has turned DCL into Inzaghi and Michael Keane into Costacurta. The man is outstanding.
