Manchester United legend Roy Keane still believes that Liverpool will win the Premier League title despite falling to fourth in the table after yesterday’s draw against his former club.
The Reds have now drawn seven games this season, having scored just one goal in their last four league outings, but Keane says he has faith in manager Jurgen Klopp to turn things around and get his team firing again:
“I’m still sticking with Liverpool. They’re obviously having a difficult spell for them, because of the standards they’ve set for the past few years. They’re attacking players are brilliant. We’ve said they’ve lost their spark but I think they will get that back. We’ve seen every team have their ups and downs this season. I think they have enough quality and enough energy. I look at Klopp… and I’m sticking with them.”
It is a surprising prediction considering Keane’s past association with United but the outspoken Irishman has shown a surprising amount of impartiality in his role as a pundit.
Liverpool’s form is a major concern, especially with the likes of Manchester City, Leicester and Tottenham all winning over the weekend. As Keane says, the Premier League champions desperately need to recover their spark in front of goal as soon as possible.
They have a home game against Burnley next up, which is certainly not an ideal game, considering the Clarets rarely give anything away at the back.
