Everton fans took to Twitter to destroy Michael Keane for his performance in their team’s 2-1 Premier League defeat to Burnley on Saturday.

Defender Keane was named in the starting XI against the club he left in a £30million transfer last summer as he partnered Ashley Williams at centre-back.

But it was an afternoon to forget for the Manchester United academy product, 25, as he delivered a dreadful display in the live televised clash.

Cenk Tosun had put the visitors in front on 20 minutes with his first Everton goal, heading past Burnley keeper Nick Pope from Seamus Coleman’s neat flick.

The Clarets responded superbly, forcing Jordan Pickford into three excellent saves before Ashley Barnes equalised by converting Matthew Lowton’s immaculate through ball from deep.

A dreadful second half from Everton was summed up on 80 minutes when substitute Chris Wood took advantage of woeful defending to head in the winner from Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s corner.

A section of the Everton support were thunderous in their criticism of Keane, claiming he is “robbing a living” and must “go before next week”.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
