Michael Keane has admitted that Carlo Ancelotti’s decision to rotate the centre-backs at Everton is “different” but is something he has “to take”.

Keane started Everton’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace, but has had to wait for opportunities as Ancelotti rotates Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate with him at centre-back.

“I’ve had to be patient,” Keane told Stadium Astro. “I had an injury a few weeks ago which kept me out but the manager has been rotating the centre-halves.

“Mason and me have been brilliant when we have played. It’s hard for me to complain. I just have to train well and that’s what I have been doing.

OPINION: Ancelotti is turning Everton’s ‘impossible’ European dream into reality…

“I know what days like today I will get my chance. I’ve got to take it – no [it’s not the norm for centre-backs to rotate]. It’s different. I want to play every game and I am sure Mason and Mina will say the same.

“But it is what it is, we cannot change that and we are all good friends. It’s a different situation but one we have to get used to and hopefully we can all get a lot of game time.”
