Manchester United are being spoken about as Premier League title contenders after beating Leeds United 6-2 at Old Trafford.
The win moves United up to third in the Premier League standings — and with a game in hand, we’re just 5 points behind league leaders Liverpool, who were crowned champions last season.
Roy Keane believes Liverpool are still the strongest side in the league, which is probably a fair assessment, but he acknowledges the work being done at Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the match, Keane said: “Liverpool are the strongest but Man United can be best of the rest…”
