Everton defender Keane delighted with thumping win over Man Utd

Everton defender Michael Keane was delighted to be part of their humbling of former club Manchester United.

Much of the post-game analysis has centred around an abject United performance but the Blues defender says the focus should be on how well Marco Silva's side played.

He said: "That is the way it is.

"Manchester United are a club that if they are not doing well get all the headlines.

"So, it is one of those things they have to deal with. But we deserve a lot of credit.

"We went about our game plan exactly as we wanted to and in very tough conditions we took the game to them for the whole 90 minutes. I think we got what we deserved."
