Roy Keane declared himself shocked and saddened by Manchester Uniteds performance in a 2-0 Premier League defeat to West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils were handed their second defeat of the season by a well taken Andriy Yarmolenko opener and a superb Aaron Cresswell free-kick.

It was a terrible day at the office for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his United side as they also saw Marcus Rashford limp out of the contest with a groin injury – the severity of which is as yet unknown, but Solskjaer guessed he would be out for a while.

Former United Keane was typically brutal in his assessment of the Red Devils display and is predicting a long road ahead for them to return to former glories.
