Louis van Gaal’s side have won their last four games domestic games after wins against Liverpool, Southampton, Ipswich Town and Sunderland.

While Keane warned there are tougher tests to come starting with a trip to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, the former United captain admitted that he was impressed with their attacking threat in recent games.

“They’re progressing nicely,” Keane told ITV Sport.

“They haven’t really been tested in the league. We’ll have a better idea in the next few weeks when they play Arsenal, Everton and Manchester City. All you can do is beat the teams in front of you.

Keane added: “There is a balance to the team. They’re a big goal threat. They might not be at their best, but if you’re scoring three or four goals a game, you’ll win football matches.”

The 20-time English champions are top of the Premier League table ahead of their clash against the Gunners at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
