Roy Keane blasts Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta with scathing remarks – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United beat league leaders Arsenal 3-1 today, handing Gunners boss Mikel Arteta his first defeat of the season.

The Red Devils cruised to victory thanks to a debut goal from Antony and a brace from Marcus Rashford in the second half.

In another solid defensive display, Erik ten Hag’s men outclassed their bitter rivals, a result that now leaves the 20-time English champions in fifth place, just three points off the lead.

Speaking after his team’s heavy loss, Arteta blamed the referees.

On Gabriel Martinelli’s disallowed goal, Arteta said: “The referee said it was a very soft decision.”

“We only ask for consistency, today we disallowed the goal again, there is nothing that unfortunately we can do now.”

Roy Keane apparently took issue with Arteta’s comments, calling the Arsenal boss a “loser”.

Keane also praised the United players for their heroic performance on the day.

About Arteta, the 51-year-old said: “What matters in football are the results.”

“Their [United’s win] another great statement.

“He’s [Arteta] Always blaming officials. Stop making excuses, you lost the game 3-1.”

“Take the applause [for the performance]but I prefer the three points”.

The applause tonight will certainly belong to Ten Hag and his men.
