Roy Keane sends ‘big problem’ message to three Man United players after 3-0 win vs Everton

Roy Keane has praised Manchester United’s attacking trio following their performances against Everton on Sunday afternoon.

The former United captain was thankful that Alejandro Garnacho, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford were all able to find the goal in the 3-0 victory.

Keane believes that Erik ten Hag’s side’s ‘biggest problem’ has been their conviction in front of goal this term and that was completely different at Goodison Park.

The Reds scored their three goals from just four shots on target and whilst their lack of chances across the 90 minutes may be a concern, it was great to see a more clinical nature from United.

“You need your attacking players to turn up to give you that breathing space,” Keane told Sky Sports after full-time. “I was critical at half-time of some of the attacking players.

“You needed a bit more in terms of hold-up play, stretching them and that’s exactly what they’ve done [in the second half]. That’s what you need from your attacking players, people like Rashford, Martial, Garnacho.

“They get the big money, they have to turn up and produce goals. Man United this season defensively, for all their problems, haven’t been conceding a crazy amount of goals.

“Going forward has been their big problem. Today, when you get players taking chances, it’ll be a relief to the attacking players that they put the ball in the back of the net and it gives the whole club a lift.”

Garnacho’s opener stole the show as the teenager scored one of the greatest overhead kicks in Premier League history.

“Absolutely amazing,” Keane said of the strike. “We had a great view right of it, right behind it. It’s really good movement and when the ball goes in… it’s hard to talk about it. I’ve never done it in my life!”
