We couldn’t quite believe the error from David de Gea that gifted Everton an equaliser during Friday’s FA Cup match against Manchester United and awaited Roy Keane’s reaction in the ITV studio with bated breath. He didn’t disappoint.
The hosts raced into an early lead when Antony was on hand to tap home at the back post following great work from Marcus Rashford.
But United soon allowed their lead to slip following a bizarre error from their goalkeeper; De Gea struggled to keep a Neal Maupay cross out of the danger zone as it squeezed through his legs and across the face of the empty goal.
Conor Coady was on hand to gratefully tap home and Everton simply couldn’t believe their luck following their nightmare start at Old Trafford.
Prior to kick-off, ruthless pundit Keane was quizzed on United’s upturn in form but he refused to jump on the bandwagon with his old side, instead criticising some of the flaws he still feels are present within Erik ten Hag’s side.
When asked whether he’d been impressed with United’s good run of results, the former Republic of Ireland international replied: “No not really, I’ll be honest with you.
“They’re on a good run and they’ve beaten teams recently but they’ve not really played anybody. They’ve not really played anybody.
“Of course they’ve got City coming up in a few weeks and Arsenal of course, but I’m still not convinced.
“I still think the problems are there with the centre backs, I’m still not convinced with the goalkeeper. They’re better than obviously last year, which wouldn’t have been hard.”
And Keane was both scathing and hilarious when asked his opinion on De Gea’s blunder.
“It’s a shocking mistake form an international goalkeeper,” Keane said. “It’s like Carry On football. He almost looks like he’s had a few drinks!
“It’s like the keeper’s been sent off and there’s an outfield player in goal and he just doesn’t know what to do.”
"It looks like he's had a few drinks!" 😂
