Roy Keane makes Premier League title prediction after Liverpool-Man Utd draw

Roy Keane has backed Liverpool to retain the Premier League title this season despite admitting the reigning champions had "lost their spark".

The former Man Utd captain watched his old club hold Liverpool to a draw at Anfield on Sunday, and almost nick all three points at the end.

It was the third league match in a row that Liverpool have failed to even score in, and leaves them currently fourth in the table.

More concerning was the ongoing struggles of Liverpool's attackers, who again found it difficult to create any real clear cut chances, though Keane feels they are just going through a blip.

"I’m still sticking with Liverpool," Keane told Sky Sports of his title prediction. "Obviously they’ve had a difficult spell for them because of the standards they’ve set in the last few years.

"Their attacking players are brilliant, I’ve said they’ve lost their spark but I think they’ll get that back.

"We’ve seen every team have their ups and downs this season. I think they have enough quality, enough energy, I look at [Jurgen] Klopp, I’m sticking with them."

United remain top after the goalless draw, but could have extended their lead at the top had Paul Pogba finished his gilt-edged chance at the death.

The Frenchman found room in the box with just seven minutes of normal time remaining, but fired his shot straight at Alisson.

A share of the spoils proved to be a fair outcome, but the result handed the advantage over to Man City, who thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 in Sunday's late kick-off.

City are now a point ahead of Liverpool and just two behind United, but have a game in hand to come which would take them top providing they can earn a victory.

Who will win the title this season? Have your say below.

Third-placed Leicester are still in the mix as well, while Tottenham and Everton are firmly back in the hunt, but Keane believes all three have some work still to do.

"Leicester you have to look at them, Leicester will be delighted the way they’re going along, absolutely brilliant," Keane added.

"I wouldn’t be including Everton, forget Everton in terms of winning the title, I don’t think they’ll last the pace.

"Still too many doubts about Spurs. The teams we’ve all mentioned, I can’t see beyond them."
