Keane makes bold Premier League top four prediction after Arsenal beat Man Utd

Roy Keane can't see Manchester United finishing in the top four this season, saying the achievement is already "out of reach".

Former United captain Keane was furious with the Red Devils' performance on Sunday as they lost 1-0 at home to Arsenal.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot, and Keane criticised the United players for showing a lack of fight.

Keane admits that before the season he couldn't see his former side competing with the likes of champions Liverpool and Manchester City for the title.

And now, after the defeat by Arsenal, he can't see them finishing in the top four either.

"I never thought for one minute they'd be challenging Liverpool and Man City but the way they've started this, the top four even seems out of reach," Keane told Sky Sports.

"And at this early stage sometimes you say, 'There's no need to panic', but the results and the performances suggest they should be panicking because it's not been good enough.

"He [Solskjaer] says they are a good boys and they want to win.

"I judge players by their actions, we don't see this from this group of players, we just don't see it, my eyes don't lie to me.

"I'd love to be sitting here saying, 'They look like a great bunch of lads, they'll bounce back, close football is all about disappointments'.

"But this group, their last huge disappointment was only three or four weeks ago against Spurs, it wasn't three or four months ago where you think, 'They'll win their next 10 or 15 games'.

"This team reacts for a few weeks, then gets carried away with themselves and think, 'We're a team now'."
