Roy Keane makes ‘honest’ title prediction for Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City

Arsenal leads Liverpool and Man City after the weekend’s fixtures. Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has had his say on how the title race may pan out.

Roy Keane admits he can’t call this season’s Premier League title race, with just one point now separating three sides, including Liverpool.

The Reds have been overtaken at the top of the table following the weekend’s fixtures. Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City, coupled with Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Brentford on Saturday, means the Gunners now lead the way on goal difference from Jürgen Klopp’s side, while Pep Guardiola’s team sits just a point behind.

Another huge game awaits after this month’s international break though. Arsenal heads to City on March 31, which could see the lead change hands once again in the title race, and Liverpool will hope the result falls in its favor.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s clash with City, Keane admitted to not knowing which side he would rather be playing for right now, with the race for this season’s title looking set to go right down to the wire.

“If you asked me what camp I’d be in, and I’m including Arsenal, I wouldn’t know which to choose to be honest,” the former Manchester United captain said live on Sky Sports.

“Arsenal are doing really well, they look strong physically, they look different to last year but then you have Man City who have had Haaland out injured and De Bruyne coming back after months out so it’s a really hard one to call.”

Keane added: “Every team is desperate to win football matches and to win trophies. When you look at the background, the context of the match with Jürgen Klopp leaving at the end of the season, they’ve already won one trophy this season but I’m always reluctant to write off Manchester City and Pep Guardiola. What they’ve done over the last few years has been incredible and for me, it’s a hard one to call.”

Liverpool.com says: Obviously, we’re going to back Liverpool to do the business, but it is near-impossible to call at this stage. There’s barely anything to separate the three sides at the top of the table, although Arsenal’s trip to City later this month could be crucial in deciding the destination of the title.

The good news for Liverpool is if it and City win every game between now and the end of the season, then the Reds will claim the title. It’s usually been the other way around in recent years, so that can be seen as a major positive, although winning every game is obviously easier said than done, especially with two other trophies to compete for.
