    ROY KEANE was in no mood to ask Christian Eriksen any questions following Manchester United’s win over Arsenal.

    Because the United legend has not forgiven the Denmark playmaker for helping condemn Ireland to a humbling 5-1 loss in 2017.

    Eriksen scored a hat-trick to end Ireland’s hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

    So it made for hilarious viewing when the midfielder joined Keane and the rest of the Sky Sports team at Old Trafford.

    Eriksen helped anchor a 3-1 win over Arsenal and was prepared to answer questions from the punditry team.

    But Keane joked: “I have no question to ask you because I’m still upset over Dublin when you scored for Denmark.”

    Eriksen replied: “Yeah, I thought so.”

    And Keane said: “I’m still upset you with you.”

    Keeping up the banter, Eriksen quipped: “It’s a good night out as well, Dublin.”

    And Keane agreed: “Yeah, I bet you did.”
