Keane: We expect more than we have given so far

Everton defender Michael Keane doesn’t believe that the players have given enough this season and believes that they expected more following their awful start to the season.

The toffeemen have been below par this season with an awful start to the season being summed up by Sundays home loss to Burnley and with the team gaining just 7 points from 7 games, Keane believes that there is more to come.

“I think everyone expected more than we have given so far: the players and the staff, not just the fans,” he said.

“We know we have been disappointing as a team and need to improve.

“Expectations from fans is one thing – but the main thing is what we expect of ourselves. And in a few games this season we have fallen below those standards.

“I did not think that was the case (against Burnley). We just need to show that bit of quality and, hopefully, we will do that soon.

“It is a great set of lads here and the staff have been brilliant with me. It has not been the best of starts with results but I am enjoying my football and, hopefully, there is more to come.”

Can Everton turn around their start to the season?
