“I think they used to target you, Gary.”

Cesc Fabregas confirmed that Arsenal used to target Gary Neville at right-back in matches between the Gunners and Manchester United.

Following Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Man United on Sunday, Neville was speaking about how difficult it was to play against the Gunners and said that he sympathised with United’s full-backs in the match.

Keane joked that Arsenal wingers, such as Robert Pires and Marc Overmars, used to target Neville in games between the two rivals.

Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas was in the Sky Sports studio covering the Premier League match as a pundit. He confirmed Keane’s theory was true. You can watch the clip below.

Keane also said that Manchester United experienced a ‘reality check’ in their 3-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday. You can read more about that here.
