'The New Spurs': Roy Keane Exasperated By Woeful Man United After Tottenham Loss

'The New Spurs': Roy Keane Exasperated By Woeful Man United After Tottenham Loss

After a concerning opening game, Manchester United produced another poor performance as they fell 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in north London today and Roy Keane was less than pleased with the performance of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Keane slammed the performance of Rashford calling him a 'child' while he rubbished the contributions of captain Bruno Fernandes and Martial, and ironically coined Manchester United 'the new Spurs'.

Well I think Man United are the new Spurs. Desperate, absolutely desperate. The biggest insult I always think about teams - teams who can't do it away from home or players who aren't up away from home.

They're bringing on Martial, they're bringing on these players. You might as well bring on Frank Stable and Norman Whiteside. Martials not gonna get you out of trouble!

Roy Keane was no kinder to Marcus Rashford or Bruno Fernandes as he compared one to a child and the other to a schoolboy, slamming the leadership on the night.

Rashford played up through the middle again..he's like a child up there. He's obviously not happy playing up through the middle...but you have to, you know, you've got to do a job for the team tonight.

You're looking at their captain tonight, the senior players, established international players: easy to play against. That's the biggest insult I can give to these United players.

When I look at Mount and Fernandes when they're out of possession, they look like schoolboys in there.


While Roy Keane reckons Man United's lack of form away from home is his biggest insult, club supporters will undoubtedly be thinking that things don't get much worse to being compared to Spurs. He also effectively ruled Man Utd out of the title race after tonight's result

Man United outclassed by rejuvenated Spurs 

It was a game of two halves as Spurs scraped by a few times in the opening 45 minutes before finding their form in a second half that saw them outclass Manchester United with a 49th-minute goal from Pape Matar Sarr.



Ben Davies then struck the net again with just seven minutes of normal time remaining.

That two-goal cushion proved more than enough to see out the near nine minutes of additional time, with one sound Eriksen strike Man United's only chance to get back into the game.

Even United's opening thirty-minute performance did little to convince Roy Keane of their potential this season, with the Corkonian convinced their players simply didn't have it.
