Manchester United legend Roy Keane admitted after the 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge that the Blues were the better side.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Keane said: “Chelsea were by far the better team. They should’ve won but United were spirited and stuck at it, got a lot of blocks in, so they’ll take some momentum after a good win in Europe.

“Hopefully they can kick on. ‘[There is a] Lot of changes. A new manager coming in, question marks over a few of the players but they stuck together and there was a spirit in the performance rather than real quality.

“Chelsea were always going to dominate so there’s no surprise with the way the game panned out. We spoke about it and said there may be a bit of arrogance at the back which we saw for the goal. United stayed in the game, gave up plenty of chances.

“To say they played well, I don’t think they played that well in midweek but have a couple positive results which you fall back on. What’s happened today is no surprise they’re lacking in confidence so you sit in bodies behind the ball and a bit of quality and pace which United will always cause problems.

“De Gea has played well recently and he speaks about fighting for everything but you should be doing that every week. It’s as if they pick and choose their moments when they’re up for it. The key for Man United is being consistent and doing it week in week out. There was spirit there but ultimately you want more.”
