Man United played a 1-1 draw against Jose Mourinho’s side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Steven Bergwijn gave Spurs a 1-0 lead in the primary half after David De Gea neglected to keep out his amazing shot.
Nonetheless, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side leveled from the spot through Bruno Fernandes, after Paul Pogba was fouled in the case by Eric Dier.
Yet, Keane isn’t persuaded with the exhibitions of both McTominay and Fred, who began for Man United against the hosts, including that the pair are adequate to be the club’s drawn out arrangement in midfield.
“The potential is there, and good players will enjoy working with other good players,” Keane told Sky Sports.
“Ole made the point about getting the balance right in the team. Paul Pogba’s available but he did not want to throw him back in, he is probably not up to speed yet so coming on for the last 25 minutes is perfect for him.
“But on paper, you could look at those two players playing together, and it will be a big plus for Man United.
“I still have doubts going forward for United. I still think the two lads in midfield – McTominay and Fred – are probably short.
“I know McTominay is learning his trade, but I don’t think Fred is up to it.
“So there will be an opportunity for these lads [Pogba and Fernandes] to play regularly. And if they click together obviously, that is good news for United.”
