Roy Keane has argued ‘it will take a lot to stop’ Arsenal on their title charge this season after they beat Manchester United on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta’s side won 3-2 at the Emirates thanks to a classy strike from Bukayo Saka and a brace from Eddie Nketiah, as they moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Speaking after the game, Keane felt Arsenal were developing into a strong side with a ‘great chance’ in the title race.

He told Sky Sports: ‘They are in a great place. There is a nastiness to them and they know what they need to do on the football pitch.

‘There is a long way to go. If you said at the start of the season they would be where they are you wouldn’t believe it, but they have got momentum. 

‘It will take a lot to stop them. It was a pressure game [on Sunday] and they dealt with that well. They are in with a great chance of winning the league.’

The pundit went on to laud the squad as a ‘likeable group with a lot going for them’, as he felt they were ‘answering their critics’ after missing out on the top four last season.

He also said the club had ‘the right people up stairs’ and that it was ‘good to see’ them ‘back at the top table.’

On the Gunners win on Sunday, he added: ‘Arsenal deserved it, the pressure they put on United in the second half. If there was any doubt over this group of players for Arsenal going ahead, the disappointment of going a goal down today, they are there on merit.’

Arteta’s men will next be in action against against struggling Everton on Saturday, and will face one of their toughest tests of the season next month when they play Manchester City on February 15.
