Manchester United legend, Roy Keane and Jamie have both predicted that Manchester City would win the Premier League this season ahead of title rivals Chelsea and Liverpool.
While Chelsea settled for a 1-1 with Manchester United on Sunday, Manchester City brushed aside stubborn West Ham United 2-1 to close the gap in the Premier League to just one point.
Chelsea still maintain their lead at the summit with just one point ahead of Manchester City while Liverpool are just two points off the top after their empathic 4-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday.
Keane said he has been impressed by the form of Chelsea and Liverpool but still believes City will defend their title and become English champions for an eighth time.
Keane told Sky Sports, “I kind of wrote off Manchester City last year and regretted it because they turned it on from November and won it so easily.
“Liverpool have kept a few clean sheets but they’ve looked a bit open at times. I think Man City right now look really strong defensively. Liverpool are scoring all the goals but I’d go with Man City right now.”
