Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta must be coming under pressure after yet another miserable performance at the Emirates. Roy Keane’s comments have only shed light on the fact that the Gunners have had a torrid season.
Roy Keane’s assessment of Arsenal shows a worrying lack of progress made by the club since the arrival of Arteta as boss.
The Spaniard enjoyed a fine six-month period when he begun the job back in December 2019 and even won the FA Cup against Chelsea.
But this season has been two steps back with a shocking run of form at home coinciding with some dismal play.
It has left them ninth in the Premier League with a top-six spot looking audacious let alone anywhere near the top-four.
Arsenal have failed to win in their last four matches at home, including a 1-1 draw against Fulham on Sunday.
The Gunners needed a very last-gasp equaliser from Eddie Nketiah to secure a point in another late blow to Scott Parker’s side.
And Keane was scathing with his remarks over Arsenal.
“I didn’t think Fulham deserved too much more from the game. They were poor, they’re fighting for their lives”, Keane told Sky Sports.
“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 a bit lucky at the end. My goodness, Arsenal.”
Arsenal’s best chances remain in the Europa League, which could provide passage to the Champions League if they win it.
They face Villarreal in the next round – who are coached by Unai Emery – and will present Arteta with a chance to convey whether he has progressed the Gunners or not.
A final against Manchester United or Roma awaits with the Premier League now almost a secondary competition for the north London club at the moment.
