Ole Gunnar Solskjaer disagrees with Roy Keane over Pogba’s Liverpool performance

Former Manchester United team-mates Roy Keane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were at odds this evening following Paul Pogba 's performance against Liverpool.

The Frenchman was deployed down the the right at Anfield, rather than in the centre alongside Fred and Scott McTominay.

United's best chance of the game fell to Pogba in the latter stages, with the midfielder hitting the ball straight at Alisson.

But Solskjaer was more focused on the player's overall performance, praising him at full-time.

"I think Paul [Pogba] was absolutely brilliant today. We knew he had to do a job defensively, bloak and help us with Robertson and I thought he was excellent and he should have got the goal his performance deserved," he told Sky Sports.

However, Keane wasn't as positive.

The Irishman made it clear that Pogba should have scored rather than squandering the visitors' best chance of the game.

"I think they will be disappointed with their two best chances of the whole game," he said in the studio.

"Liverpool obviously had a lot of possession, started well. But the two big chances United had in the second half, particularly the more you watch it – Pogba – they're saying it's a great save but he has to score.

"What a boost that would have been for United – spoiling their home record, the three points.

"Pogba, you can tell by his reaction. His first touch excellent. Oh my goodness. Has to score. Go across the goalkeeper. Anywhere but straight at him.

"It's easy when you're watching here but Pogba, because his first touch was so good he's given himself the opportunity to go across the goalkeeper. Huge moment in the season for United.

"Credit to the keeper he stood up, made himself big but that was the chance you'd be praying for before the game."
