Roy Keane laments “shocking” Everton performance and “non-existent” midfield

Roy Keane was not impressed by Everton’s performance as they crumbled against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The visitors were 4-0 down just ten minutes into the second half thanks to goals from Mason Mount, Pedro, Willian and Olivier Giroud.

The Blues had been 2-0 up within the first quarter of the match with Chelsea’s pace ripping Everton to shreds.
