After the win, Keane showered the team with praise, “I think what I like about this team is the spirit. The personality of the team. Apparently the counterattack was played in the second half. They were excellent, they could have scored a few more goals.
“Another great win for the club, I think the momentum is coming back. The feel good factor is there, the fans are humming, it’s a good day for them!’ He added.
Today’s result marks United’s fourth straight Premier League win, a benchmark the club failed to match all of last season.

The atmosphere at Old Trafford could not have been more different than when United lost to Brighton in the opening weekend and Keane expressed his belief that the club’s turnaround has affected the atmosphere at Old Trafford.
‘It was long ago. There was a lot of negativity. Last season and early this season but when you win a few football games everyone feels great, I said that before. Arsenal take all the credit but it’s all about the points.
United began their recent run in form with an unlikely win over last season’s Champions League runners-up and the former United captain claimed that a sense of certainty about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club boosted team morale.

“They beat Liverpool a couple of weeks ago, they were like: ‘Can you confirm it? and they did! And you look at the table and suddenly everyone feels better, the transfer markets are over so there’s no hassle with Ronaldo leaving, they can just move on.
With today’s win, United now sit fifth in the table and are the only Premier League club to have back-to-back wins in their last two games.
United will look to continue their positive momentum when they host La Liga club Real Sociedad in Tuesday’s Europa League group stage opener.
