"Shocking, dreadful!" – Keane’s scathing assessment of Arsenal under Arteta

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has slammed Arsenal as "shocking" and "dreadful" in their 1-1 draw with Fulham on Sunday.

A 97th minute strike from substitute Eddie Nketiah rescued a point for Mikel Arteta 's side, who had gone behind after Josh Maja scored from the penalty spot.

Speaking after the game, Keane told Sky Sports: "I don't think Fulham deserved to win, they were poor. But the lack of quality from both teams, it was dreadful.

"Arsenal were even worse. God help Arsenal going forward. I thought they were shocking, dreadful. No quality. They got lucky at the end. Arsenal, my goodness."

In his post-match interview, Arteta told Sky Sports that he felt the Gunners "totally deserved to win the match".

He said: "We started really well, controlling the game and creating chances, scoring a goal that was disallowed, in a very disappointed way, we kept going and didn't allow any shots on target and suddenly we concede a penalty and the game changes completely.

"We took risks in the right way, we could have scored three or four, we totally deserved to win the match but put ourselves in a difficult position.

"We have to just focus on the boys playing away in Europe and arriving here with the desire to go all the way to the 97th, 98th minute."

Arteta also offered an update on Alexandre Lacazette, who limped off in the second half with a hamstring injury.

  • "He felt his hamstring so we don't know," Arteta added. "We have to rotate players, we have players who didn't recover from the game on Thursday. That is the risk. You cannot change those players every game.

    "We had 16 shots, probably not enough on target, goals disallowed, a post, that is the difference, you have to win this game."
