1pm Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Kounde is ‘top summer target’, Sergio Ramos LATEST, Dembele eyed, Sancho UPDATE


Manchester United handed rivals City a golden opportunity to extend their Premier League lead after drawing 0-0 at Arsenal.

Both sides put in a turgid performance to slug out a goalless stalemate at the Emirates.

But the result is arguably worse for United, who are now three points behind City having played a game more.

Red Devils legend Roy Keane was furious with the performance and said United lacked the belief to win.

He blasted: “I’m scratching my head with United really. My worry watching them today was that they almost lacked the belief that they could go and win the game.

“It’s Man United. You’re looking at Arsenal who are missing a few players – I know that doesn’t guarantee you to win football matches – but the game was there for the taking.

“Imagine playing for United and having a lack of belief that you can go and in a game of football.

“Cavani’s obviously got to score, but overall their performance just lacked that intensity.”

United were also dealt an injury blow as Scott McTominay limped off holding his stomach.

But there was good news for the U23s, who beat Liverpool 6-2 in the Premier League 2.

The game saw the introduction of new winger Amad Diallo.

And he left fans salivating with two goals – including a cheeky Panenka penalty.
