‘I think it’s done’: Roy Keane predicts where Liverpool FC , Man City will finish
Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane believes Liverpool FC will win the Premier League title this season
Roy Keane believes Liverpool FC will win the Premier League crown this season, adding that the Reds have “great momentum” in the title race.
The Reds moved eight points clear of Leicester City and Chelsea FC at the top of the Premier League table on Sunday thanks to a 3-1 victory over defending champions Manchester City.
Goals from Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane sealed three points for the home side before Bernardo Silva netted what ultimately proved to be a consolation goal at Anfield.
Liverpool FC have already beaten Arsenal, Chelsea FC, Leicester, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur this season, while the Reds drew 1-1 at Manchester United.
Jurgen KLopp’s side have collected 34 points from their opening 12 games, helping Liverpool FC to establish a nine-point lead over defending champions Manchester City.
Former Manchester United captain Keane, who won the Premier League crown five times, believes Liverpool FC will be relishing their upcoming fixtures in the title race.
“I’m not a betting man, but I think it’s done,” Keane told Sky Sports.
“I’m intrigued when we talk about the demands on the modern footballer about trying to win titles. People say, ‘it’s not going to be easy… it’s not supposed to be easy.
“If it was easy, everybody would be winning league titles. Very few people win league titles. It’s meant to be tough, it’s meant to be demanding.
“When you look at the fixtures they’ve got coming up, if you’re in that Liverpool dressing room, you’d be thinking ‘bring it on’.
“They’ve got great momentum. Can there be injuries? Of course, that’s part of being part of a great club.”
Liverpool FC will make the trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday 23 November before home games against Brighton and Everton at Anfield.
Klopp’s men will make the trip to Bournemouth on 7 December before the Reds travel to Leicester City on 26 December.
The Reds also have the small matter of their remaining two Champions League group-stage fixtures, a League Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa and the Fifa Club World Cup.
