Everton enjoyed a 1-0 win over Norwich City on Wednesday evening and Michael Keane was one of many players praised for his performance. The 27-year-old helped keep a clean sheet, limited Norwich to only one shot on target and nullified the threat of Josip Drmic and Teemu Pukki. He also scored Everton’s winning goal, heading home a Lucas Digne corner in the 55th minute, which resulted in plaudits from supporters.

Everton's Cenk Tosun reacts to a missed chance v Southampton

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

Against Norwich, Keane played for 90 minutes, won 10 aerial duels, completed 91.2% of his 68 passes, created one chance, had one shot which resulted in a goal, made two tackles, played six long balls with five finding a teammate, made three interceptions, blocked two shots and made six clearances.

The England international joined Everton from Burnley for £25.65m in 2017 and has gone on to make 100 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and making three assists. This season, Keane has made 27 appearances in across the board, scoring twice.

The 27-year-old was inconsistent earlier in the campaign, but he’s impressed since football returned in England. Vital Everton have previously pondered his future at Goodison Park, but Keane is justifying his manager’s faith.
