Man Utd are Liverpool's biggest threat for Premier League title ahead of Chelsea and City, claims Roy Keane

ROY KEANE has insisted that Manchester United can challenge Liverpool for the title.

The Manchester United legend described Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side as the 'best of the rest'.

Manchester United are third in the Premier League table behind Leicester and Liverpool.

The Red Devils put in a solid performance during the 6-2 win over Leeds on Sunday.

And Keane, 49, has predicted that United could be Liverpool's closest challengers this season.

He told Sky Sports: "I don't believe McTominay there when he said they don't look at league tables.

"Everybody looks at league tables. Players and staff. That's what you're playing the game for.

"You want to know where you are obviously and where you're heading to.

"It's been a nice few days for United. They had to beat Sheffield United and Leeds just to put another marker down.

"I still think Liverpool are the strongest but United I think could be the best of the rest."

But fellow pundit Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink disagreed with the former Old Trafford star.

The former Chelsea striker said: "Best of the rest… no I can't see it.

"Today they were amazing, don't get me wrong but amazing because they killed Leeds off on their mistakes and that's what they do.

"Now, when a team doesn't make that many mistakes – against Man City, 0-0 – they don't create.

"Against Chelsea, they had one opportunity. They don't take. 0-0. So on and so on."

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford has claimed the team are 'capable of winning big trophies'.
