Richard Keys clashes with Dwight Yorke after sarcastic comment about Man Utd following Liverpool draw

Richard Keys has clashed with Dwight Yorke in a fiery debate about Manchester United following their draw with Liverpool.

Erik ten Hag’s side pulled off a shock result by holding high-flying Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield on Sunday.

United had Diogo Dalot sent off for two quick-fire bookings for dissent late in the match but held on to secure a vital point away from home.

Liverpool dominated large periods of the game and had 34 shots but were unable to find a way past Andre Onana.

After the match, beIN SPORTS host Richard Keys was reluctant to praise United for their performance, to the annoyance of former Red Devils striker Yorke.

“I can’t believe what I’m hearing,” said Yorke. “What about well done United?”

“For what?,” replied Keys.

Andy Gray then interjected: “For being the first team to stop Liverpool winning at Anfield.”

To which Keys shot back: “Well done. Crystal Palace could have done that.”

Gray then added: “For being the first team to stop them scoring at Anfield this season.”

“Oh, well done,” fired back Keys. “That’s a triumph for Manchester United that, is it?”

He then added: “Let’s not get carried away. If Liverpool had played well, and they didn’t, they would have won that game.”

Yorke, who was visibly annoyed with Keys, responded: “That’s irrelevant. You’re not giving them credit where credit is due. Not a lot of people gave us a chance here, even I had doubts. Can we score a point or get a result? I’d be delighted.”

To which Keys sarcastically replied: “Wow. Well done.”

It is not the first time Keys has criticised United in recent weeks.

He accused United captain Bruno Fernandes of getting purposely booked against Bournemouth in order to pick up an automatic suspension and miss the match against Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the former Sky Sports presenter has previously branded United manager Erik ten Hag as a “tin-pot tough guy”, while last season he claimed Wout Weghorst was the “worst ever player” to feature for the Old Trafford club.
