Roy Keane says Marcus Rashford had Seamus Coleman 'on toast' during FA Cup annihilation

Roy Keane believes Marcus Rashford had Seamus Coleman 'on toast' during Manchester United's 3-1 win over Everton last night.

Appearing as a pundit on ITV, Keane expressed sympathy for Coleman and claimed that 'even a 24-year-old Coleman' would struggle to contain Marcus Rashford on current form.

The English winger has scored in seven consecutive Old Trafford games taking his tally to twelve for the season. Rashford was once again the difference maker last night, grabbing a goal and an assist as well as forcing an own goal from Conor Coady.

For the Coady OG, Rashford collected the ball on the left wing and was faced up by Coleman. The 25-year-old drove at the Irish defender, skipped past him and played a dangerous ball which Coady could only turn into his own net.

Analysing the incident, Keane was effusive in his praise of the United man's recent performances and claimed that Rashford had the Irish right back exactly where he wanted him.

"I kind of expect this from Marcus every week. When he gets full-backs in 1v1s, he's going to go by you. We can't even be that too critical of their defending tonight.

"Even a 24-year-old Seamus Coleman can't defend that. He's just too quick. He's going to decide what he's going to do - that's what the good players do,' Keane continued.

"You can't stop the players who are on top form. And Seamus, he's (Rashford) got him on toast there."

The defeat for The Toffees heaps even more pressure on Frank Lampard who has overseen a wretched run of form as Everton boss this season.

For Erik Ten Hag's Manchester United, yesterday's victory was a seventh win on the spin and continued the Red Devils' fine run of form ahead of back-to-back league clashes with Manchester City and Arsenal.
