Keane reckons Everton have ‘turned a page’ ahead of Chelsea clash

Michael Keane believes Everton have ‘turned a page’, despite the Toffees’ 3-2 defeat at Newcastle United last weekend.

Marco Silva’s side squandered a two-goal half-time lead at St James’ Park, with Salomon Rondon’s goal and Ayoze Perez’s brace sealing an astonishing comeback win for Newcastle.

Despite the defeat, central defender Keane is taking the positives from his side’s performance, and referenced recent good showings against Cardiff and Liverpool as proof that 11th-place Everton are heading in the right direction.

“We felt we were cruising for an hour, they did not cause us many problems at all and we were playing really good football,” Keane told evertontv.

“We were disappointed for all the fans who came to watch us.

“But I do feel we have turned a page in the past three games. We played really well at Cardiff and against a top side in Liverpool. And we did well until the final 20 minutes at Newcastle.

“You have to take positives from every game and learn from the mistakes you make.

“We have to look forward and always try to improve.”

Everton host sixth placed Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.
