Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane insists the club can push Liverpool for the Premier League title this season.
The Red Devils were at their imperious best on Sunday, thrashing Leeds United 6-2 at the Old Trafford.
Keane, who was an ardent critic of his former club believes they could be the reigning champions’ closest challengers.
“I think over the last few months they’ve been heavily criticised, particularly over the home record. I’ve been quite critical of the back four, the goalkeeper, questioning where this team is going, but the name of this game is proving people wrong,” Keane told Sky Sports. “Maybe, just maybe, this group of players can do that.”
The thumping victory over Leeds has propelled Man United to third in the league table, five points behind Liverpool but with a game in hand.
“They’ve been winning games, and that’s all you can do. United are in a great position considering how slow they were out of the blocks. If United can get their house in order at home, there’s no reason why United can’t stay up there.
“I think Liverpool are still the best, but there’s no reason why United should be fancying their chances in terms of pushing Liverpool.”
