Keane berates Man Utd star who fluffed ‘huge moment’ in Liverpool draw

Paul Pogba had the chance to snatch all three points for his side late on in the game.

He found the ball at his feet just eight yards out just seven minutes from time.

The Frenchman thundered a shot goal-wards but Reds goalkeeper Alisson parried it away to ultimately save a point for the hosts.

The custodian had a number of stops to make throughout the second half and was praised for his performance.

 

 

However, Keane opted to instead criticise Pogba for not putting the ball into the net.

“They are saying it was a great save from Pogba but he has to score,” he said, speaking on Sky Sports.

“Oh my goodness, he has to score. His first touch was so good, he had the opportunity to go across the goalkeeper.

“A huge moment in the season for Manchester United. United will be disappointed with the best two chances of the game.”

Pogba has scored twice in 15 Premier League games this season.

A draw that favours neither side

After a lacklustre first-half, United moved up a gear in the second half, producing more attacking opportunities.

Alisson was forced into a number of stops with David de Gea not being troubled too much up the other end in the second period.

However, neither side could find the breakthrough as both shared the spoils.

United will arguably be happier with the result, but the draw opens the gate for Manchester City.

The Sky Blues have two games in hand and take on Crystal Palace on Saturday night.

If they win both of those matches, Pep Guardiola’s men will take top spot.
