Absent Haaland labeled as a League Two player by Roy Keane following Arsenal stalemate at the Etihad

Absent Haaland labeled as a League Two player by Roy Keane following Arsenal stalemate at the Etihad

Roy Keane had Haaland labeled as a League Two player in his post match analysis after the draw at the Etihad.

Indeed, the Norwegian was not his usual self in the battle versus Gabriel, failing to get change out of the Brazilian.

The duo had a 90 minutes tussle but it’s the Brazilian who came out on top in the battle. Overall, Arsenal would feel like they won here after earning a draw in a place that is not a happy hunting ground for them.

The Manchester United midfield legend questioned the quality that Haaland brings to the side when he is not scoring goals.

In his post match analysis, Roy Keane had Haaland labeled as a League Two player. He said:

The levels of his general play is so poor. Not just today, I think his laying stuff off, headers, whatever it might be – in front of goal he’s the best in the world – but for his general play for such a player it is so poor… he has to improve that. He’s almost like a League Two player, that’s the way I look at him. His general play has to improve, and it will do over the next few years.”

Manchester City vs Arsenal fail to ignite

Klopp and all the Liverpool faithfuls are the only true beneficiary from that result at the Etihad. Maybe also Arsenal, who would be delighted to not get beat once again at Etihad. But for both sides involved in the contest, it’s two points dropped in the title race. The frustrations were palpable from Guardiola, who appeared to be laying into Grealish at full time.

As far the neutrals who waited two weeks to see the game, it must be nothing short of utter disappointment.
