Along­side Scott Woot­ton, 19-year-old Keane im­pressed at the back in the 2-1 win over New­cas­tle at Old Traf­ford in the third round of the Cap­i­tal One Cup. Keane said: “You play games with more pres­sure when you get to a higher level.

“When you get called into the first team, you’re used to be­ing des­per­ate to win.

“I was so tired af­ter the New­cas­tle game. I’ve never been that tired af­ter a game, men­tally as well as phys­i­cally, be­cause of the con­cen­tra­tion, how the day went build­ing up to it and then the 90 min­utes, but I thought we did well.

“Shola Ameobi has played in the Premier League for years so you know if you’re play­ing against him, you’re prob­a­bly good enough to be play­ing in the Premier League.”
