Manchester United’s victory over Arsenal on Sunday has Roy Keane certain that his team will finish in the top four of the Premier League this year.
After a disastrous start to the new season, Erik ten Hag’s revamped squad has now won four straight games after outwitting the Gunners at Old Trafford.
While Marcus Rashford’s threat on the counterattack helped United win the game 3-1, Mikel Arteta’s team controlled significant stretches of the entertaining contest.
After having a successful end to the transfer window, United is currently only three points off the top spot and no longer resembles the team that was destroyed 4-0 by Brentford last month.
Keane believes that United now has the depth needed to secure Champions League eligibility for next season with the addition of Antony, who scored on his debut, and players like Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo, who can be subbed in from the bench.
He asserted that United are certain to finish in the top four and that their lineup is already decided.
The players who weren’t pleased with the Cubs have left the transfer window with a lot of baggage, as I previously indicated.
The alternatives off the bench today, he added, showed that the manager is settling in united in my favor
A former teammate of Keane’s Gary Neville, on the other hand, was a little more reserved and believes United still have a lot to prove if they want to be able to compete with their competitors during a 38-game season.
Regardless of the result, Erik ten Hag is happy with the development his team has made recently but says that United is far from a finished product.
According to Erik Ten Hag, raising the bar requires daily effort. We have numerous members of our team who have won championships, and they all have to uphold that standard, which is my demand and the demand of the other players.
Erik Ten emphasized that although we will celebrate briefly today and turn our attention to the following game the following day, we must keep the Europa League in mind.
