Man Utd icon Roy Keane reveals fears over 'soft' Arsenal in damning verdict ahead of FA Cup clash vs Forest


MANCHESTER UNITED legend Roy Keane is concerned about Arsenal's "softness" in the Premier League.

The Gunners have recovered amazingly well after putting together their worst ever Prem start that saw them losing their first three matches and conceding a staggering nine goals without scoring once.

However, manager Mikel Arteta managed to turn things around and the north Londoners are currently fourth in the top flight after winning four of their last six matches.

However, Keane insists there is still a lot of room for improvement left at the Emirates as he believes Arteta's men have proven to be too soft against the league's top teams.

Arsenal lost to high-flyers Manchester City on New Year's Day and also came up short against Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea this season.

Keane told ITV Sport: "Considering where they were at the start of the season when they were under huge pressure, they've recovered well and got themselves in a good position.

"The key is now, can they get into that top four? The rewards for that are obviously fantastic.

"There's some really great, exciting young players but I still feel there is a softness.

"They've lost against the better teams and that's where they need to improve."

This comes ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup clash against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground later today.

The Gunners failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 25 years last season and are determined to return next term.

The FA Cup, which Arsenal have won more times than any other club, would help them achieve that goal if they experience the same slump in form as they did last year.
