Roy Keane: Daley Blind, Antonio Valencia defending "disgraceful"

Roy Keane describes the defending by Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia as "disgraceful" following Manchester United's FA Cup sixth-round defeat to Arsenal.

Roy Keane has criticised Manchester United pair Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia following Manchester United's FA Cup sixth-round defeat to Arsenal.

Valencia played a part in both of Arsenal's goals, including inadvertently setting Danny Welbeck through on goal for the winner, while Blind failed to tackle Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the build-up to Nacho Monreal's opener.

"Blind and Valencia - it's absolutely disgraceful. Schoolboy errors and that's what costs your team. Big moments in a football match and if you give Arsenal, with the quality that they have, that type of freedom that's what happens," Keane told BBC Sport

"It was too easy, shocking. Absolutely disgraceful."

United manager Louis van Gaal was also disappointed with his team's performance.
