Roy Keane insists Manchester United deserved the humilation they got against Manchester city in the Manchester derby.

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes that the Red Devils deserves the humiliation they got from local rival Manchester City.

Manchester City defeated Erik Ten Hag’s men 6-3 in the Manchester derby with Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scoring an hattrick each in the game.

United trailed 4-0 in the half time of the game which is one of the things Roy Keane fumed at after the game.

Speaking after the Manchester derby the Skysports pundit said: “Man City were magnificent. Watching Man City, it is a pleasure. Watching them live, they are one of the best teams I’ve ever seen.

“But Man United, [it’s] a huge setback for them. We were giving them a little bit of praise over the last few weeks, but this is a huge step back.

“Four-nil down at half-time – they were 4-0 down at Brentford – and the performance in the second half, it’s no good, even as consolation. They scored a few goals – the game’s over.

“There’s nothing for Man United to take out of this game. From the players’ point of view, they really should be embarrassed. You can’t go in at half-time 4-0 down in a derby game, it’s hugely embarrassing.

“Haaland and Foden were brilliant, but if they’re getting the service from people like De Bruyne and you’re giving him time and space, you’re looking for trouble, and they got punished and rightly so.

“This game is brutal. When you’re not quite at it, you get hammered by your local rivals. They should be embarrassed.

“I just can’t imagine going into a dressing room at a big club like Manchester United and you’re 4-0 down at half-time.

“It must be bizarre – but saying that, they must be getting used to it because they did it at Brentford.

“The manager must be scratching his head with his staff and thinking, ‘We’ve made progress over the last four games’. Huge setback.”
