Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes his former club won't win the Premier League title as long as Scott McTominay and Fred are playing in the midfield.
United suffered a 1-0 defeat in the hands of Arsenal last Sunday at Old Trafford, thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's second-half penalty. The Red Devils have struggled this season in the Premier League and are yet to register any win at home. Despite impressing against Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men failed to produce the same performance against the Gunners.
In the last five of United's six matches, McTominay and Fred have been used as defensive midfielders in order to give Bruno Fernandes room for creativity. However, Keane doesn't believe the pair meets the standard required for a tram to challenge for the title.
"There’s nothing wrong with Man United winning a game 3-1, or 3-2, you’ve got to get on the front foot," he told Sky Sports.
"Last year, Chelsea scored more goals than them, Leicester scored more goals than them. People talk about Fred and McTominay in midfield, they’ve had their chance, we’ve seen them. I don’t think they’re bad players, but they won’t get United back to winning league titles. Tim [Cahill, fellow pundit on Sky Sports] makes a point there about Man United having great players, I don’t see it, I don’t see the great players."
"They have some very good players, but they need to show a bit more."
The Red Devils who are 15ht on the log will take on Carlo Ancelotti's men Everton this weekend in a Premier League tie.
