Everton have fought valiantly for consistency so far this season under Marco Silva and are starting to reap the rewards from their efforts.

Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Brighton leaves the Toffees in the top half of the table and just a couple of points behind sixth-placed Bournemouth, providing a solid platform to build upon in the months ahead.

While the attacking players in the side like Richarlison continue to catch the headlines for their performances in front of goal, with the young Brazilian earning plenty of plaudits after hitting a brace against the Seagulls, Everton took time to hail a defensive star.

In a post on social media, the Toffees identified the strong start to the campaign that Michael Keane is enjoying in the heart of defence – which shows a significant improvement to the displays he put in last season.

While many suggested the difference has been the departure of Ashley Williams, plenty of fans heaped praise on the former Burnley man. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
