MANCHESTER UNITED have the ‘confidence and belief’ to win the Premier League, according to their legendary ex-captain Roy Keane.
He believes the Red Devils are among ‘five to six teams’ that can challenge for the title – but admits Liverpool are in the driving seat.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are second to the Reds on goal difference.
And his old team-mate Keane thinks United are in the mix to go all the way.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “There's a few. Liverpool are the strongest, they've been slacking off, a bit sloppy.
“United have sorted out their home form. Tottenham had a good home win yesterday. You can't write Man City off.
“We've criticised them recently because they've set such high standards over the years. But there are five to six teams who can challenge.
“[United], if they keep winning football matches. We were really critical at the start of the season.
“Their home form was so bad, it was shocking. Some of their performances and results.
“But away from home they were fantastic. Even their last few victories, a bit of luck – penalty against Villa, injury-time winner against Wolves.
“They'll be getting confidence and belief they can at least challenge Liverpool.”
Man City moved fifth after beating Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
They still have a game in hand on United and Liverpool and sit just four points behind the leaders.
United travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on January 17 in what could prove to be a crunch clash in the title race.
