Roy Keane has picked out a "problem" with Arsenal during their win over Watford on Sunday despite Mikel Arteta's side moving into the top four of the Premier League with games in hand.

The Gunners took all three points following classy goals from Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, taking them into fourth for the first time since January 1.

Having said that, it wasn't the perfect performance from Arteta's men with Cucho Hernandez scoring a screamer and Moussa Sissoko ensuring it would be a nervy finish for the visitors.

Keane has picked out that late goal as a reason for Arsenal fans to feel slightly concerned, especially in relation to how easily Ben White was beaten.

Keane, who was on punditry duty for Sky Sports, said: "This is Arsenal, poor defending, White has to do better there and it’s a problem for them (Arsenal)."

Speaking to BBC Sport, Arteta admitted that the opposition deserved credit, but now has eyes on securing their place in the top four.

He said: "Credit to Watford, they are fighting for their lives. They changed their team and it is hard to beat them.

"We are getting better and better, the understanding between the players is getting better and we should have scored more today."

Before adding: "We are there now and we'll go game by game. Every game is a rollercoaster, we have three big games coming up in a week."

Arsenal went above Manchester United by claiming another three points, sitting a point above the Red Devils with two games in hand before the Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon.
