Manchester City and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday evening.

It was a very tactical battle at the Etihad, with both teams refusing to open up spaces at the back.

Sunday’s draw leaves City third in the table, a point behind Arsenal and three behind Liverpool with nine games of the season remaining.

Erling Haaland didn’t particularly have a good game, and he has been told by Manchester United legend Roy Keane that he plays like a League Two player.

“The levels of his general play are so poor,” Roy Keane told Sky Sports while speaking about Haaland.

“Not just today, laying stuff off, headers, whatever it might be… in front of goal he is the best in the world but his general play for such a player is so poor.

“He has to improve that. He is almost like a League Two player.

“His general play has to improve but it will over the next couple of years.

“He’s a brilliant striker but he has to improve his all-round game.”

Haaland scored 52 goals in 53 appearances in his first season at City last term. The 23-year-old has hit 29 in 35 this campaign.

Surely, Roy Keane will want a striker of Haaland’s calibre at Old Trafford.
