Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane donned his pundit hat yesterday and was asked about what he thought of Arsenal's protracted celebrations following their 4-0 win over Newcastle.
Despite it being a tight game for the most part, Mikel Arteta's men pulled away significantly at the end with late goals from Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette adding sheen to the scoreline.
The 95th minute injury time goal from Lacazette, especially, was celebrated with aplomb by the Arsenal players as it was the Frenchman's first since December 2019.
However Keane had a different take on the matter and went on to shoot down the London club's 'over the top' celebrations.
“Forget Arsenal. Way over the top. Ridiculous”— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) February 17, 2020

"Way over the top," he said.
"When I was watching it, I thought they were 10 points clear in the league the way they were celebrating towards the end.
"Forget Arsenal. Way over-the-top celebrations to beating Newcastle 4-0. Ridiculous."
It was, however, a welcome win for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal as the North London club seeks to claw back into Champions League contention after a disastrous start to the season under former manager Unai Emery.
In addition to their win over Newcastle, Manchester United's 2-0 triumph over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge later on in the day meant that the gap between Frank Lampard's men at fourth position and Arsenal at tenth is just 7 points.
