Keane said he ‘couldn’t believe’ what he was watching when his former side left behind four goals
And Keane said he “couldn’t believe” what he saw at the Etihad.
“I am shocked at how bad United have been and City have been excellent,” Keane said at halftime. “You give Man City this time and space with their quality, that’s way too easy. No aggression, try to force them back. Worst start ever for United.’
Keane suggested United’s performance and said Ten Hag’s men looked disjointed all over the field.
“Perhaps a lack of faith,” Keane said when asked about United’s poor performance. “It has been easy for City. Bad as United was defensively, their passing was sloppy, there are gaps between McTominay and Eriksen.

Huge job for the manager during halftime. I can’t believe how bad Manchester United have been.
United are everywhere, but it’s brilliant for City. Manchester United, oh my God, it’s like the game is too big for them.
“The opportunity has been given to United’s players. I can hardly believe what I’m looking at.’
