Roy Keane gives verdict on title race as Liverpool draw 2-2 at Man Utd

 Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane, has given his verdict on the Premier League title race after Opta’s supercomputer boosted Arsenal’s chances by 7.6 per cent.

Last week, the supercomputer made Liverpool title favourites after they beat Brighton and Arsenal drew 0-0 at Manchester City last week.

But following this weekend’s round of matches, with Liverpool drawing 2-2 at Manchester United on Sunday after Arsenal and Manchester City picked up wins over Brighton and Crystal Palace respectively on Saturday, things have changed.

Opta has cut Liverpool’s chances from 45 per cent to 31.3 per cent, while City have increased from 33.6 per cent to 39.7 per cent.

Arsenal have the biggest weekly increase, going up from 21.4 per cent to 29 per cent.

But speaking on Sky Sports, Keane said: “I’m not really sure [about Opta’s supercomputer].

“It certainly wouldn’t bother Arsenal. I try to put myself in each camp here. If I was in the Arsenal camp, I’d be quietly confident with winning the league.

“If I’m in the Liverpool camp, I wouldn’t panic, taking a draw [with a late goal]. If I’m in Man City’s camp, I’m comfortable too. All three teams fancy their chances.

“Winning league titles is difficult. You need a bit of luck and your top players performing. I wouldn’t take too much notice [of the supercomputer].”
