‘I NEED A DRINK!’ – Roy Keane reveals Premier League title favourites after Man City vs Arsenal

Ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has admitted that he now believes Liverpool are the favourites to win the Premier League title after Manchester City and Arsenal’s game ended in a goalless draw on Easter Sunday.

Earlier that day, Liverpool had climbed to the top of the Premier League thanks to a 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion. The goals were scored by Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.

Even though Manchester City controlled most of their game against Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus was the one who came closest to scoring a goal. Now, Liverpool are two points ahead of Arsenal and three points ahead of the current champions.

After the stalemate, Keane admitted that Jurgen Klopp’s men are now the favourites.

“Liverpool are the real winners of today, obviously winning and watching these two teams draw,” he said.

“Liverpool will be delighted. You’re looking at the table now and thinking Liverpool will be favourites for it, but with the amount of quality on the pitch that is why we’re disappointed.

“Arsenal, good team shape or whatever, clean sheet, but when you’re looking at the standards City have set themselves the last seven years – particularly De Bruyne and Foden – when they don’t quite reach that level you’re disappointed.

“We take it for granted that these brilliant players will turn up, they’ve had an off day and will just have to take the point. I’m not sure it will be good enough at the end of the season for City.”

Keane repeated later in the show that he would put Liverpool as title favourites, with the former Manchester United captain adding: “I think I need a drink.”
