ROY KEANE scoffed at the idea of Manchester United stars feeling pressure to get a result at Leicester to guarantee a top-four finish.
United needed just a point to guarantee Champions League football next season – and ended up 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jessee Lingard.

But Old Trafford legend Keane was not impressed that they had to face such a battle on the final day of the season.
He said on Sky Sports: “The bottom line is you need to show why you’re playing for Manchester United and why the other players are playing for Leicester.
“Because you feel like you’re the better players, you’re the better team.
“Does that guarantee to win a football match? Obvisouly not but that’s what Manchester United players should be thinking today – that’s why you’re at Leicester and I am at Man United.
“People talk about pressure – pressure on Man United trying to finish in the top four and get a result at Leicester City? You know, give me a break.”
Keane was critical of United’s first game back after the restart, when they drew at Tottenham.
The former skipper lashed out at record signing Harry Maguire and keeper David de Gea.
United and Chelsea – who both qualifed for the Champions League – went into the season’s final game knowing avoiding defeat was crucial.
But Keane thinks that standard is the absolute bare minimum.

He explained: “You just automatically expect obviously Man United and Chelsea to be competing in the Champions League.
“That’s the remit for these clubs. I know it’s easier said than done.
“I think the big bonus would have been for Leicester to get into the top four.”
