Michael Keane TEAMtalk

Everton boss Marco Silva faces an anxious wait to discover the severity of the injury suffered by Michael Keane in the dramatic 2-2 draw at Bournemouth.

England defender Keane was given lengthy treatment on the field in the closing stages at the Vitality Stadium following a nasty collision with team-mate Idrissa Gueye.

The 25-year-old, who scored the Toffees’ second goal, left the pitch on a stretcher and was taken to hospital for assessment.

Silva said Keane’s condition was his biggest concern after his team surrendered a two-goal lead on the south coast in a pulsating encounter in which both teams finished with 10 men.

“First and most important, believe me,” the Portuguese said about Keane’s injury.

“He went to the hospital, I don’t have more updates about the situation.

“When he went to the hospital, in that moment it looks a little bit better, in better condition as well.

“I hope everything is OK now but we have to wait.”
