The former Manchester United captain gave his two cents on the Premier League title race.

Roy Keane has expressed doubts about Manchester City’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season.

Sunday’s 3-3 thriller against Tottenham was City’s third draw in succession. The result cost them valuable ground in the title race, as the season nears the halfway stage. Liverpool are now in second place in the standings, sitting one point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side. Arsenal are a further two points ahead in the top spot.

This turn of events has left Keane to wonder if Arsenal and Liverpool are both in a stronger position to threaten City.

“I certainly wouldn’t bet against Man City, but I am starting to become doubtful about City winning that title,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“There is a reason it [the title] hasn’t been won four years in a row because keeping those levels up, that hunger, desire, you get a few injuries, some of the top boys coming off it.

“But certainly Arsenal and Liverpool. I’m looking at, especially Arsenal with the strength and depth they’ve got and the experience of last year.”

City will return to Premier League action on Wednesday away to the fourth-placed side Aston Villa.
