Roy Keane delivers his verdict on Liverpool facing Manchester City in semi-final of FA cup
Former Manchester United star Roy Keane has shared his view on the FA Cup semi-final draw between Manchester City and Liverpool.
Chelsea are drawn against Crystal Palace in the other semifinal.
The headline of the competition is said to be between the two Premier League title chasers.
Both teams have arguably been dominating English football over the last few years and are now drawn against one another at the Wembley stadium.
Liverpool managed to secure a 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground which led them to the semi finals.
“It’s a great draw,” Keane told ITV Sport, as quoted by HITC Sport.
“The Liverpool and Manchester City one is great to look forward to, if they get through today.”
On Liverpool players being aware of the draw ahead of their quarter-final game, Keane said:
“No, that will get down to the players.
“I think they are all big enough and ugly enough to just focus on the game.”
The Reds did not have their best game against Nottingham Forest but Diogo Jota once again turned out to be the crucial player for the Reds.
Manchester City cruised past Southampton with a 4-1 victory despite the Saints putting up a strong showing in the first half.
