Best known as an Arsenal defender, Keown's form for the Blues helped him earn a return to Highbury - the club where he began his career.

He moved to Aston Villa in 1986 after struggling to get into the team regularly at Arsenal. A key player at Villa Park, he was signed by Everton on 7 August 1989, just before the start of the 1989–90 season, for a fee of £750,000.

He had a fine start to his Everton career as the Blues topped the table for a while in late autumn and hopes rising the Club could win the league title yet again.

But form ebbed away after Christmas and Colin Harvey's men managed only a sixth-place finish.

Keown made 20 league appearances that campaign and a slightly better 24 in 1990/91, when Harvey was replaced by Howard Kendall as manager in November. He missed just three league games in 1991/92, which brought another mid-table finish, and he played just 13 more league games for the Toffees before accepting a £2 million return to Arsenal in February 1993.
