Cape Town - Everton defender Michael Keane says Sunday’s clash against Manchester United is a big chance to restore confidence.

The Toffees have been on a downward spiral since winning their Premier League opener against Stoke, drawing with Manchester City before losing to Chelsea and Tottenham.

"We've got to focus on ourselves and make sure we're doing all we can to get this result," Keane told Sky Sports News.

"If we can get a positive result I'm sure the fans will be a lot happier again. That's how easy it can be turned around."

The England international centre-back started his career with the Red Devils before his move to Burnley, making this a return to a familiar ground for both him and Wayne Rooney.

"I think he'll get a fantastic reception," Keane added. "I think the fans there realise how good he's been for the club and everything he's won there, so I wouldn't expect anything other than massive applause."

Before their trip to Old Trafford, the Toffees are off on a Europa League adventure to Italy to face Atalanta on Thursday.
