Not a chance for Manchester United — Roy Keane



Not a chance for Manchester United -- Roy Keane

Following the performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night to close the first weekend of the new Premier League season, former Manchester United skipper, Roy Keane has predicted the Red Devils’ fate come end of the season.

According to the United legend, Erik ten Hag’s side are far off from where premier league champions, Manchester City are at presently, and it will take loads of effort or a step down on City’s part for United to come chasing for the title.

Roy Keane asserts that currently, the Red Devils are better off chasing for the top 4 finish like the rest of the pack like Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Chelsea, and Arsenal who all are in a race for the Champions League.

From quotes gotten courtesy of Metro, Roy Keane said;

“No, I don’t think so [United challenging for the title]. I just think it’s so hard to see beyond Man City.

“Again, I’ve said it before, unless they really drop off and get really bad injuries and lose that hunger, then I think the other teams have a chance.

“United will be top four. Arsenal have improved, look at Newcastle. Aston Villa will respond well [to losing to Newcastle on Saturday]. Obviously Liverpool and Chelsea.

He goes on to add that;

“For a lot of those teams, it’s about being top four, and that’s the same for United.”

Manchester United fought off a 1-0 win at home against Wolves on Monday night, thanks to defender, Raphael Varane breaking the deadlock.

However, like a typical premier league game, VAR controversy marred what could have been an interesting tie between both EPL rivals.
