Roy Keane slams Manchester United 'attitude' despite 3-1 win over Fulham

Roy Keane has blasted Manchester United players for having a bad attitude in their 3-1 win over Fulham.

United scored three late goals as Fulham capitulated to book their place in the semi-finals, but for 70 minutes, they struggled to get going against the Cottagers.

It was only when Fulham self-destructed - with Willian, Aleksandar Mitrovic and manager Marco Silva being sent-off in the space of two minutes - that United took control of the game and set up a semi-final date with Brighton in April.

After the game, Keane had no sympathy for Fulham and blasted them for losing their composure. He was almost as scathing in his assessment of United and accused the home side of having a bad attitude.

Of course Fulham self-destructed but United were so poor, it was unbelievable."

When asked if United have been lucky in the FA Cup this season, he added: "It's better to be lucky than good, sometimes.

"They've found their way in the previous games and today it was more self-destruction from Fulham, and the home draws have really helped them.

"You need luck in cup competitions and United have certainly had their fair share this season."

Worryingly, Keane believes some bad habits have crept into United's play the last few weeks.

I've lost that little bit of confidence watching them now. About a month or two ago, you're thinking 'yeah they're up for it'.

"I think it's ok trying to play in moments every now and again but now it seems to be their DNA at the moment.

"I think they've gone into some real bad habits."

Keane concluded his analysis by stating that United would need to play much better against Brighton in the semi-final if they are to make it to the showpiece at Wembley.
