Keane: Liverpool have beaten nobody


Roy Keane has dismissed much of the hype around Liverpool after their 7-0 destruction of Spartak Moscow on Wednesday night be saying "they've beaten nobody yet".

The Merseysiders needed at least a point from their final Champions League group stage fixture to ensure safe passage to the knockout stages but they got all three as they ran riot and humiliated their Russian opponents.

Philippe Coutinho scored a hat-trick and such was the beauty of the movement and ruthless finishing from their front four, observers rushed to propose Jurgen Klopp's side as potential competition winners.

But Keane was just as quick to pour water on that idea.

“They’re certainly in great form at the moment, they are scoring for fun and it was a comfortable night for them," he said in his punditry role on ITV.

“Their attacking players enjoyed it but the big tests are yet to come for Liverpool, clearly they’ve beaten these so called lesser teams, but they’ve beaten nobody yet.

“It’s lovely to watch but they wouldn’t get that time and space against a decent team, it’s as simple as that.

“Give quality players time on the ball like that and they are going to punish you. The reality is if they are playing a top team in Europe they won’t get the time and space, they won’t get those opportunities.

“If you know this game then you understand they have so much bigger and tougher tests coming up."

Liverpool will find out on Monday who they will play in the last 16 and you can watch the draw live on the eir Sport pack on BT Sport 2, coverage beginning at 10.45.

The final European football of 2017 takes place on Thursday evening and you can watch Everton face Apollon Limassol at the GSP Stadium on 7 December, live on eir Sport 2 [kick off 6.00pm], while Arsenal take on BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium, also live on eir Sport 2 [kick off 8.05pm]
