Keane is playing at CB.
You play a CDM in this formation so the wing backs can push forward more. That's the idea, anyway. Croasdale being there frees up MSH (when fit) to bomb on and will do the same with Kitching (when fit)
Without that shield, your wingbacks have to worry more defensively and become less effective.
