Liverpool may have slipped to fourth in the Premier League standings after Sunday’s games, but Roy Keane is still counting on retaining the title this season.
The defending champions only managed a 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday, meaning the Red Devils remain top of the table.
Later in the day, Manchester City defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 to leapfrog Liverpool into second place in the league, while Leicester City are third.
The situation is very tight at the top, with just three points separating the top four teams, with Tottenham and Everton just behind.
It may be a bad day for Liverpool, who have not scored in three Premier League games, but Keane still wants them to win the title.
The Manchester United legend admits Jurgen Klopp’s side are far from the best at the moment, but expect them to bounce back and lift the trophy.
I will always stay at Liverpool, Keane told Sky Sports. It is clear that they have had difficulties because of the standards they have set in recent years.

Their attacking players are brilliant, I said they have lost their spark, but I think they will find it again.
We have seen this season that every team has its ups and downs.
I think they have enough quality, enough energy, I look at Klopp, I support them.
The title race looks to be one of the most open in recent memory, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City all having high hopes of success.

Keane believes Leicester are also a strong contender, but he has overturned the chances of Spurs and Everton to finish in fifth and sixth place respectively.
Lester, you should see them, Lester is going to love the way they do it, absolutely brilliant, said the Irishman.
I wouldn’t take Everton, I would forget Everton in terms of winning the title, I don’t think they can keep up.
Still too much doubt about tracks. The teams we’ve all been talking about, I can’t see beyond.
Next week the Premier League calendar continues with the return of all title contenders.
Leicester host Chelsea on Tuesday, Man City have a home game against Aston Villa and Man Utd travel to Fulham on Wednesday before Liverpool host Burnley at Anfield on Thursday.
