Former Manchester United player Roy Keane has praised the club’s personality following Sunday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal.
After starting the season with two defeats, Erik ten Hag‘s have bounced back with four consecutive victories, including the win over the Gunners at Old Trafford.
Antony scored on his debut for the Red Devils, and although Bukayo Saka netted an equaliser, a brace from Marcus Rashford secured United all three points.
Speaking after the victory, Roy Keane told Sky Sports: “I think what I like about this team, is the spirit. The personality of the team. Obviously, second half they played on the counter attack. They were excellent, they could’ve scored a few more goals.
“Another big win for the club, I think the momentum’s coming back. The feel good factor’s there, the fans are buzzing, that’s a good day for them!”
Commenting on the improvement in atmosphere around the club, Keane said: “It’s been a long time. There’s been a lot of negativity.
“Last season and the start of this season, but when you win a few football matches everyone feels great, I’ve said it before. Arsenal taking all the plaudits, but it’s about the points.”
The United legend also added: “They beat Liverpool a few weeks ago, you asked ‘can they back it up?’ and that’s what they’ve done!
“And you look at the table and all of a sudden everyone’s feeling better about themselves, the transfer markets over so there’s no hassle about Ronaldo leaving, they can just get on with it.”
The victory leaves United in fifth position in the Premier League, and they will now turn their attention to a home Europa League group stage encounter against Real Sociedad on Thursday.
