Manchester United legend Roy Keane Roy Keane has slammed Manchester United following the 3-1 win against Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Keane was impressed with the performance of Manchester United against Fulham, claiming the Red Devils were ‘so poor it was unbelievable.’

Aleksandar Mitrovic gave Fulham the lead just after half-time, but with 15 minutes to go, shockingly appeared to shove referee Chris Kavanagh. He and Silva were both sent off for dissent, after Willian was also shown a red card for handling the ball on the line to prevent Jadon Sancho from scoring. 

“Obviously with the FA Cup the priority is getting into the next round but with United I still think their manager will be disappointed with what he saw,” Keane told ITV Sport.

“Of course Fulham self-destructed but United were so poor it was unbelievable.”

“I’ve kind of lost that little bit of confidence watching them now,” Keane added.

“I think about a month or two ago you’re thinking ‘yeah, they’re up for it’, but the last few games I’ve seen they have a real habit of, I think it’s OK to play moments every-now-and-then, but I think that seems to be their DNA at the moment.

“And I think they’ve got into some real bad habits. It’s almost they’re turning up today thinking ‘we’re Man United, we’re going to win football matches’.

“But if they turn up with that attitude for the semi-final, Brighton will beat them. Listen – it gives us a kick up the backside.”

It was a lacklustre first-half showing from United, with Fulham outplaying the Red Devils on possession, goal attempts and passes.
