Manchester United legend Roy Keane has urged Mikel Arteta to stop whining after the Red Devils halted his Arsenal’s 3-1 run at Old Trafford.
“The Gunners” had won five in a row before their visit to United, but despite the victory they remain at the top of the table, having a point ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
Arteta had grievances with the referees over Gabriel Martinelli’s disallowed early goal. After a VAR review, the goal was disallowed due to a foul on Martin Jodegaard in the build-up to the attack.
“I haven’t seen a replay of the situation, but I’m told it was a fairly light nudge. I don’t see consistency in refereeing. When there was a slight foul on Tyrone Mings on Bukayo Saka last week, no penalty was awarded. When there was a slight foul on “Aaron Ramsdale in the Aston Villa game and we conceded a goal, it was counted. So I don’t see consistency. But there’s nothing left to do, it’s too late,” said a disappointed Arteta after the loss. But Keane didn’t think that way.
“I’m sick of this whining from Arsenal, really – said the Irishman quoted by webcafe.bg in the Sky Sports studio. – Arteta just can’t lose like the rest of us. He should have congratulated the winners from Manchester United and given them what they deserved, but he didn’t and lost 1:3.”
The win was United’s fourth in a row after two tough losses at the start of the season. Erik ten Haag’s team is now fifth, just three points off the leaders.
