Former Manchester United player Roy Keane has slammed Arsenal players who are obsessed with "selfies and six packs" warning that if they don't change their ways they have no chance of winning the Premier League.

The Republic of Ireland assistant manager, who infamously referred to the Manchester United home fans as the "prawn sandwich brigade" in reference to a minority's love of corporate hospitality told the Irish Daily Mail that despite having some really good players, some of the Arsenal team put their vanity before their footballing hunger.

"Every year we hear the same thing about Arsenal being contenders. Instead of focusing on the Premier League, it's all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches," he told the paper.

Keane also had time to give United rivals Manchester City a wake-up call suggesting that it would be hard for new signings Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph to make an impact in the team. He suggested that despite Manchester City denting the cheque book this year that their dressing room had "not been improved".

His Premier League tip for the current season remains Chelsea because of the hunger of the players, he told the Irish Daily Mail.

Keane warned the club not to become complacent, but said they had a good chance of retaining the Premier League title as his former club United had stopped bringing up talent through the club and were now concentrating on picking up players in the transfer market.
