Roy Keane has mocked Arsenal in his assessment of Liverpool FC.

The former Manchester United captain watched Liverpool FC ease to a resounding 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow in their final Champions League group-stage game on Wednesday night.

The Merseyside outfit finished in top spot in Group F to secure their place in the Champions League last 16 following three victories and three stalemates.

Indeed, Liverpool became the first European team to win 7-0 twice in the group stage after their emphatic win at Slovenian opponents Maribor back in November.

Jurgen Klopp’s men scored more group-stage goals than any other Premier League club in Champions League history after their 23 goals surpassed Keane and his 1998-99 Manchester United team’s tally of 21.

The Republic of Ireland coach claimed that Liverpool FC have beaten no team of note in the Champions League or the Premier League this season.

When reminded on ITV that Liverpool FC were 4-0 winners against Arsenal at Anfield earlier this season, Keane replied:

“That’s what I mean, yeah.”

Liverpool FC will have the chance to prove Keane wrong on Sunday afternoon when the Reds welcome Sam Allardyce’s side to Anfield in the Merseyside derby.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.
