"I kind of wrote off Manchester City last year and regretted it because they turned it on from November and won it so easily," Keane told Sky Sports.
"At this moment in time, as brilliant as Liverpool and Chelsea are, I’d go with Man City," he added.

Jamie Carragher's stance:

"It’s been a good weekend for Liverpool but they’ve dropped some silly points this season so I’m with Roy, I think I’d probably just go with Man City," the Liverpool icon stated.
