Former Manchester United combative midfielder, Roy Keane has questioned Liverpool’s ability to go far in the Champions League following the Red’s 2-2 home draw against Sevilla.
Firmino missed the chance to give Liverpool a 3-1 lead just before half time when his penalty kick struck the post before Joaquin Correa earned a point for the Spanish side with a second half equaliser.
Speaking on ITV, Keane said: “It’s the easiest part of football: switching on,”
“Liverpool do the hard things really well in terms of creating chances, pace, power and a bit of quality going forward.”
“But that is the easiest part of football, yet Liverpool cannot seem to do it.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino’s goals turned the tie around for Liverpool after Wissam Ben Yedder’s 5th-minute strike gave the visitors the lead in a game that yet again raised eyebrows about Liverpool’s defense line.
Keane continued: “I think they have enough to get through the group but later on against Real Madrid and all the big boys, they’ll be laughing at Liverpool.”
“This sums up Liverpool in a nutshell and why they are not going to win any big prizes: the switching off from a throw-in and it leads to an equaliser in such an important game,”
“They must drive the manager crazy because that is schoolboy defending – from a throw-in!”
