Roy Keane expresses his frustration about Pogba's missed chance

"Because his first touch was so good he's given himself that opportunity to go across the goalkeeper – a huge moment in the season for United. Credit to the goalkeeper, he's stood up, but that's the moment they might've been praying for before the game." Keane said.

Roy Keane

, the ex-captain of

Manchester United

, expressed his frustration about the missed chances to score in the

Liverpool

-Manchester United's draw

.

Liverpool players had 17 attempts and only 3 were managed on target. Manchester United also managed to have 4 on target.

Alisson Becker

also was an impressive figure and performed great as a keeper in the second half of the game with plenty of stops.

Keane believes that the right-wing role was not familiar to Pogba and this must have had an impact on

Pogba

's missed chance to score.

He said:

"The big opportunity is the [Pogba] chance. You can tell by his reaction. His first touch is excellent, my goodness, he has to score. Go anywhere, across the goalkeeper, but not straight at him.

"Because his first touch was so good he's given himself that opportunity to go across the goalkeeper – a huge moment in the season for United. Credit to the goalkeeper, he's stood up, but that's the moment they might've been praying for before the game.

"It's easier said than done [to come out of defence]. We knew Liverpool would be quick out of the blocks, they haven't played for nine days.

"You can't say Liverpool have played badly, but they've lost their spark, definitely, and when you get the opportunities like Pogba did, it's so disappointing. We've been giving Pogba a big build-up, we've been quick to criticise him but that was a moment for him to say he wants to be the main man, you've got to take that chance."

He, however, added that the Red Devils showed "a good mentality"

He said:

"I thought the back four, which always worries me, were brilliant.

"I know they gave up one or two chances in the first half-an-hour. [Luke] Shaw was brilliant defensively and going forward. When I look at a couple of chances United created, they still created the best chances in the game. Huge moments."
