Arsenal v Man Utd: Match in pictures

Manchester United failed to carve out a win against an Arsenal side missing Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, leaving Manchester City in pole position to push on in their pursuit of the Premier League title. Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane was left fuming with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men at full-time. 

Manchester United legend Roy Keane had a furious rant at his former club after their goalless draw with Arsenal on Saturday, which followed their 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United.

The former Old Trafford midfielder insisted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side look “frightened” by the prospect of challenging for the Premier League title.

And Keane was in disbelief at their lack of belief that United could go and in win the game against a weakened Arsenal side.

It was a fairly tame encounter in truth as neither side worked hard enough to find the all-important winner.

And Keane admitted that he thought United looked like they would be happy with second place this season.

”All of a sudden people are saying ‘can you win the league’, can you compete with Man City?” he said on Sky Sports after the game. “And it looks like the players have got a bit, almost frightened of the challenge.

“It’s as if they’ve gone ‘I don’t think we’re ready for that yet’. It seems to be (they’re happy with second).”

Keane’s other main concern was United’s lack of a killer blow, which he says comes from not believing that they can go on and win the game.

“I’m scratching my head with United,” Keane went on. “The worry for me, watching them today, was they almost lacked the belief that they could go and win the game.

“It’s Man United. You’re looking at Arsenal who are missing a few players.

“I know that doesn’t guarantee you to win football matches. The game was there for the taking.

“Imagine playing for Manchester United and having a lack of belief that you can go and win a game of football.”

The draw leaves United three points behind Manchester City, while the Sky Blues have a game in hand to pull further ahead.
