But while Keane was impressed with the spirit shown, he questioned why United’s players do not consistently show such effort.

“If United were to get anything it would be from Chelsea arrogance at the back.

“They gave up plenty of chances but to say they played well today – I don’t think they played well mid-week – so it’s no surprise the way the game panned out today.

“They’re lacking confidence particularly in the bigger games so you sit in, get bodies behind the ball and you’ve enough bit of quality and pace going forward that United would always cause problems.

“(David) De Gea spoke there about fighting for everything today but you’re supposed to do that every week.

“This is the big criticism of this football team going back to the Watford game, Liverpool – going back most of the season – it’s as if they pick and choose their moments when they’re up for it and when they’re going to work as a team.
