Manchester United legend Roy Keane, has claimed that Manchester City will win the Premier League this season.

City defeated Nottingham Forest 2-0 away from home on Sunday, to further lay claim on their quest to win a fourth consecutive Premier League title.

Reflecting on the weekend’s action in the Sky Sports studio, ex-Manchester United captain Roy Keane – a seven-time Premier League winner with the Red Devils – said it was all over for Arsenal and Liverpool in this year’s title race, as he backed City for the title.

“City’s players must have great belief in themselves and each other. After 20 to 25 minutes you’re thinking Forest are doing well, creating chances, but you’re still thinking that City will eventually get themselves going,” Keane said.

“In the second half City got more control, they bring Haaland on, [Kevin] De Bruyne then starts flexing his muscles.

“De Bruyne, for his two goals, generally wasn’t at his very best, but they know they have another gear to go to.

“They had a tough game in midweek and they were outstanding. Today it was a case of let’s get this job done.

“Phil Foden was a loss but the one thing I look at when I look at Manchester City and their players and their subs… the word that springs to mind is “quality”. It’s just pure quality from the players they’ve got.

“Even today when they weren’t at it, they can turn to set pieces with their delivery, people attacking the ball, options off the bench. It’s so difficult to stop.”
