Everton were back to their worst away form with a 3-1 loss to Bournemouth at Dean Court. The Toffees struggled defensively against the Cherries and fans were not impressed on Twitter.
One player who came in for plenty of stick from Everton fans was Michael Keane.
It has been a tough week for the England defender. His performances with his nation were heavily criticised over the international break, especially after a disastrous display against Kosovo.
Against Bournemouth, he appeared to have a hangover from those games.
He was found slow and sluggish throughout the game and was certainly culpable for the bookend of Bournemouth’s goals.
Keane was caught day-dreaming as Callum Wilson headed home the first goal of the game. His lack of pace was then exposed by his England team-mate, who bagged his second and Bournemouth’s third.
Everton fans were certainly not impressed with Keane’s display. The former Burnley man has found form inconsistent at Goodison Park but looked to be finding his feet toward the end of last season.
However, this display again exposed his weak points in costly fashion for Marco Silva’s men.
I’m struggling to think of a defender with less intelligence than Michael Keane. Absolute liability #EFC

How Michael Keane is even up for England team discussion is insane #EFC

Keane isn’t good enough, let’s be honest. He had a better season last season compared to his first with us, but he’s always ball watching & slow to the ball. Same goes for Mina

Sigh – that 3rd was so, so bad by Keane. Cost us the game that. A point might have been do-able, but there isn’t enough goals in this side to get 2 in the last 15 mins
