Richard Keys Says Liverpool Were 'Scared' Of Facing Manchester United
Liverpool were scared of facing Manchester United, says sports presenter Richard Keys who believes Jurgen Klopp's side were "concerned" this week.
Keys reckons Liverpool had concerns about playing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, claiming the visitors should have taken full advantage on Sunday.
Liverpool dominated possession and dictated the first-half of their Premier League clash with United growing into the game and had the best chances in the second-half.
And the former Sky Sports presenter didn't hold back when assessing the game.
But Nigel de Jong, who won a league title at Manchester City, argued against Keys' claim.

The defending English champions have now gone three league matches without a goal for the first time in almost 16 years.
And speaking about their lack of goals, Klopp said: "There's nothing fundamentally different. It's just the result is different.
"We try and we don't score, or we try and we score. That's a big difference, to be honest.
"We have nothing to worry about but obviously we work on it. It's not that we ignore the fact and just hope that it will be good again.
"The only possibility you have to score goals is to create situations - to be ready to fail and then do it again.
"That's a massive difference between when you are flying when you score with pretty much each chance you have. You deal with the missed chance better then. That's the difference, nothing else."
He added: "I saw my team playing tonight and I saw a really good football team with a clear idea with super passes, great counter-press, great desire to score - but we didn't score.
"We will create chances and we will score."
Will Liverpool hit the back of the net when they resume their league campaign against Burnley on Thursday?
