Roy Keane Responds To Phil Foden's Manchester United Claim After Man City's Derby Win

Manchester United legend Roy Keane dismissed Phil Foden’s claim that Old Trafford is “difficult” for away teams this season after Manchester City’s derby win.

The Red Devils were outclassed and dominated by defending Premier League champions City on Saturday.

Eric Bailly bundled the ball into the back of the United net in the seventh minute to put City 1-0 up at Old Trafford.

David de Gea was widely praised for a first-half performance that denied City from significantly extending their lead.

However, the United shot-stopper was unable to deny Bernardo Silva from adding City’s second before half-time.

United were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa at home in late September and were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton in early October.

And the Red Devils were humiliated a fortnight ago at Old Trafford in a thumping 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Speaking after City’s 2-0 win, Foden claimed that City took “massive confidence” at securing all three points from their visit to Old Trafford.

The England midfielder told Sky Sports: “We can take massive confidence from this because Man Utd are a great team and it’s such a difficult ground to come to. We showed our class today.

“We had the game of our lives today. Everything went right, a lot of possession and chances. We dominated from start to finish. [What went right?] Possession, picking the right times and when to hurt them. Really pleased.

“Massive confidence going into the international break -- important to get the win before that. Delighted. It was very important to get back to winning ways.”

Keane, who was vocal in his criticism towards United, disagreed with Foden’s remarks about Old Trafford and said the Red Devils were “poor” against City.

“Phil Foden mentioned it is a tough place to come, it’s not,” he said.

“Ask Everton, ask Aston Villa and Liverpool. Teams have come to Old Trafford and are getting a hit of joy now.

“I know United’s away record has been fantastic over the last couple of seasons but ultimately it’s what you do at home that gives you that foundation to try and compete and go on and win trophies because United still always have the quality, even away from home. But their home form, the performance and the defending.

“The goal at half-time killed it. They needed to go in at half-time 1-0 down, re-group and try and do something.

“The second goal is game over and United, I don’t know what I want to say? It’s just so poor.”

United will face Watford next at Vicarage Road on 20th November after the international break.
