Roy Keane criticized Manchester United’s desire after their goalless draw at Arsenal saw them lose ground to Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Edinson Cavani missed a golden opportunity to slot in the winner in the second half but former United captain Keane said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looked like they lacked the belief to see off an Arsenal side missing key men Bukayo Saka, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Kieran Tierney.
The result, coming on the back of United’s midweek shock defeat at home to bottom-club Sheffield United, coupled with City’s Saturday win over the Blades, leaves United three points behind their neighbors, who have a game in hand.
“I’m scratching my head with United. The worry for me watching them today, they almost lacked the belief they could go and win the game,” Keane told Sky Sports.
“It’s Man Utd, you’re looking at Arsenal who is missing a few players, the game was there for the taking.
“Overall their performance lacked that intensity. There was a real lack of quality today from Man Utd and a real lack of conviction and desire to go and take the game to Arsenal. And Arsenal certainly deserved their draw, at least.”
