Roy Keane: Arsenal have more to prove
Former Manchester United star Roy Keane has suggested that Arsenal may flatter to deceive yet again this season despite their bright start to the campaign.
Arsene Wenger’s men have now gone 11 games without tasting defeat following the 4-3 loss to Liverpool on the opening day of the season.
The impressive run has also seen Arsenal win six Premier League games in a row for the first time since the 2014/15 season.
However, the manner in which they have collapsed during the business end of previous campaigns means the Gunners have still not convinced everyone that they are serious contenders for major honours this year.
Thus, Keane insists the sublime form of Theo Walcott and the Arsenal team cannot be taken too seriously.
“He [Walcott] is a good player in good form. The problem is, there is a question mark over most of these Arsenal players because we’ve seen it before. They start the season well but it is over the winter months when the big crunch games come up.” the ex-United captain told ITV
“It is not a criticism of the player because that’s what they’ve done before. History will tell us they’ll come up short.
“But I do think these Arsenal players look a touch stronger and [have] a bit more quality in depth.”
