Michael Keane: I face Burnley in my best Everton form

Michael Keane feels he returns to Burnley this weekend in the best form of his Everton career.

The 25-year-old has been in and out of Sam Allardyce's starting line-up during the manager's time at the club, but has now started each of Everton's last four fixtures.

“I feel like I have really settled in now and started to play the best football I have played since I have been here, consistently," Keane told evertonfc.com.

“It does not help when the team loses [as at Watford] but I have been reasonably pleased with how I have been playing. I know I can still improve and I am working hard to do that.

“But I think, in general, the team has been doing a bit better lately and we just need to keep that going.

“The lads are desperate to do well away from home. I think, even though the result wasn't good at the weekend [against Watford], the performance was a bit better than it has been away from home lately.

"So, hopefully, we can improve again. We know it is going to be a tough game, we know what to expect from Burnley. Hopefully we can go there, impose our game on them and get the three points."
