Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, has admitted he was annoyed while watching his former side play against Chelsea on Sunday evening.

The Red Devils were held by Chelsea in a very boring affair, which leaves us 12 points behind Manchester City, as the final run of games for the season approach.

In his post-match analysis, Keane slammed United for trying to get a draw, instead of attacking Chelsea, to get the win.

“It was a poor game, I was getting more annoyed as the game went on,” he said on Sky Sports.

“No desire to get in the box. Real lack of quality from United. The big games where they’ve not produced, that must be a concern.

“They do try and win, but these games I think their mindset is let’s not be beaten. I think United are looking at teams behind them rather than trying to win matches and chase Man City down.

“I think they’re concentrating on let’s cement that second place. Sometimes you can have a 0-0 and have a great game, but some of these games have been really boring considering there’s good attacking players on the team.

“When you’re at one of the big teams the onus is on winning football matches.”

The football pundit also took a swipe at Olé Gunnar Solskjaer and Thomas Tuchel for setting up their teams to play things safe.

He added: “The first thing the managers will say in interviews is they’re pleased with clean sheets, teams I played for wanted to score goals.

“We might concede one but lets try and score goals, that was more important than a clean sheet.”
