And Old Trafford legend Keane admits ‘it’s scary how far they’ve fallen’ since the club’s title-winning days under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The former midfielder told Sky Sports: “I don’t know where to start.

“I knew they weren’t in a great place, but I’m shocked and saddened at how bad they were today.

“Lacklustre, no quality, lack of desire, lack of leaders.

“There’s a long way back for United, it’s scary how far they’ve fallen.”

United’s woes were worsened when Marcus Rashford was forced off with an injury in the second-half at the London Stadium.
