Roy Keane humiliates Maguire, Lingard and Rashford in one damning swoop

Roy Keane stuck the boot into Harry Maguire, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford following Manchester United's 4-0 loss against Liverpool, claiming they're not as talented as they all think.

United had their backsides handed to them by Liverpool for the second time this season on Tuesday evening as their Champions League hopes suffered another potentially fatal blow.

Ralf Rangnick's side found themselves 2-0 down inside 22 minutes at Anfield after goals from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah. Sadio Mane made it 3-0 midway through the second half before Salah rounded things off with his second of the match late on.

Things were so bad for United that some awarded their man of the match to Hannibal Mejbri. The 19-year-old only came on with minutes remaining but showed the fight and desire that United lacked all evening.

After the match, Sky Sports pundit and Red Devils legend Keane gave his thoughts on a dreadful evening for United – and he didn't hold back. "We are hearing the same stuff all the time, we need to be together as a team, we need to do better," he said.

"But we’re not seeing it. There is no doubt that they are talented players, but they are not a team. When they fancy it, they turn up, but when they are under pressure and under the cosh, they don’t have that team spirit that you need.

"This Manchester United team is short on talent anyway, I don’t think that they are as talented as they think. So they have to back it up with that spirit."

Keane reserved special criticism for Rashford, Lingard and Maguire, all three of whom disappointed at Anfield. "(Marcus) Rashford’s performance, he played like a child up front," fumed the Irishman.

"Jesse Lingard coming on to save Manchester United? Defensively we are trying to help out (Harry) Maguire, but that last goal is not acceptable for Manchester United.

"We talk about that rebuild again but Manchester United need to get some quality players in to try and compete. I don’t know if we’re fifth or sixth in the league, Manchester United fifth or sixth in the league? Unbelievable."

Despite their latest defeat, United are still in the hunt for the final Champions League spot and face a huge six-pointer against Arsenal on Saturday.
