They need goals from Fred and Anthony Elanga to restore their lead and avoid an embarrassing slip up.

And their tenacious fighting has won praise even from those who are often difficult to please Keane, the former United captain.

He told Sky Sports: “I think United will be fine in fourth place, I really do.

“There’s been a lot of noise about players wanting to leave, the contract situation with Pogba and Jesse Lingard, and people like that.

“Let’s focus on the next few months, the important few months for Man United, try and get fourth place.

“They’ve got a big European game coming up, let’s focus on that, and then focus again in the summer regarding a manager obviously, they’ll look at hiring, but keep Stay mentally strong and focused and they’ll be fine.”

Jadon Sancho helped get them on their way by setting up Fred – and pointed out by Keane.

He said: “He’s getting back to a bit of a swagger, and it’s great to see him being heavily criticized.”

Former Tottenham striker Roy Keane added: “He was brilliant today, Sancho. A few weeks ago he was fantastic.

“When he first arrived, every time he had the ball, he would go back and play simple passes.

“Now in the last four weeks I’ve seen him, when he gets there in 1v1 situations, he runs into people, he humiliates everyone.

“His numbers at Borussia Dortmund are incredible, he needs to do it now. He seems to be starting to come into play with goals and assists.”
