Manchester United legend Roy Keane doesn’t think his former side has enough to challenge Liverpool or Manchester City next season. Liverpool were crowned English champions for the first time in 30 years on Thursday after City lost to Chelsea.
It was the culmination of years of building under Jurgen Klopp, just a year after winning the Champions League.
Pundits and former players have backed Liverpool to be the ones to beat next year with their rivals doing everything they can to close the gap.
City have been their closest rivals, but even Pep Guardiola’s side are currently staring at a 23-point gap to Klopp’s outfit.
And Keane admits Liverpool have been by and away the best team in the league this year.
