ROY KEANE has explained how Arsenal can win the Premier League this season.
But he stopped short of making a title prediction after vowing he will "never make that mistake" having previously backed against Man City.
The Manchester United legend thinks Manchester City are in line to regain the title – unless Arsenal add a new addition to the squad.
Arsenal snatched a crucial 1-0 victory against last term's Premier League champions Manchester City at The Emirates on Sunday.
Their impressive performance against City raised eyebrows on who will be taking the trophy home come the end of the season.
Keane, 52, vowed the Gunners need to recruit a striker to the squad to take the top of the table.

He said on Gary Neville's Stick to Football podcast by Sky Bet:“Arsenal can win the league, but they would need that striker. It’s great when you’re watching a team that can play.
"That is good in possession, but also physically strong. We’ve seen Manchester City over the last few years, they’ve got bigger – obviously set pieces are huge.
“We’ve seen players this season come off the bench for Arsenal, they are big, strong, physical players who can get you over the line in tight games.”
Arsenal No9 Gabriel Jesus has returned after undergoing knee surgery but has failed to make a breakthrough yet.

But the Man Utd legend did carry on to say how much the North London club have progressed this term despite Jesus' injury.
However, he pledged to never write off last year's Treble winners and admitted that was his biggest "mistake" a few years ago.
He continued: "City are obviously having a difficult spell. It was a poor game against Arsenal.
"I thought it was really poor quality but it was edgy. I certainly won’t be writing Man City off.
"When you look at the two league games last year, Man City were so far ahead so there’s definitely been progress for Arsenal.
"I wouldn’t change my mind in terms of who I think will win the league – it’ll be Man City.
“You look at the last time they played Arsenal in the Community Shield – obviously some class it as a friendly, but they won that game.

"That will only give Arsenal that bit of confidence and belief. They won it without Saka, who’s a huge player up front.
"City were missing a lot of players. A few years ago we watched City vs Manchester United at Old Trafford in the derby, and United wrote off City. I’ll never make that mistake again."
