Keane: Everton can build on Chelsea draw

Everton centre-back Michael Keane believes his side can use today’s 0-0 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge as a foundation on which to push on this season.

The Toffees got off to a stuttering start this season under new manager Marco Silva, but recently results have started to improve, with the Merseyside club having claimed 10 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 Premier League games.

“I think we played good football and created some problems for them, it’s definitely something we can build on.’’ Keane told the BBC.

The point keeps Everton in ninth place, however just 1 point separates the sides between ninth and sixth positiion.

Keane also put the positive result against Chelsea down to their side’s organisation and ability to keep the hosts from utilising their best players.

“I think we stayed organised and kept our shape. We know when to press because they have got a lot of good runners but we won a lot of our 50/50s. We deserved the point.

“Jordan Pickford made a few good saves but they didn’t cut us open. It is down to the training and it is down to the talking and the organisation on the pitch.”
