Keane: Arsenal midfielder Partey can match Vieira; I wish Man Utd had him

Manchester United great Roy Keane admits he's already been won over by Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.

The pundit's comments came as Arsenal claimed their first win at Old Trafford since 2006, beating Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team 1-0.

Keane told Sky Sports: "When you watch a player live, that's when you can judge.

"The more I watch him, the more I wish he was in the Man United midfield.

"I think this kid has got a chance of matching what Patrick [Vieira] used to do.

"I wish we had him in United's midfield. He could definitely be Arsenal's successor to Vieira."
