Man City 1-1 Liverpool: Pep Guardiola's side will now find it 'very difficult' to win Premier League, says Roy Keane

Roy Keane believes Manchester City lack the firepower needed to win the Premier League this season, after their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s side were a distant second to the Reds last season and eight games into the 2020/21 campaign they already trail Liverpool by five points, sitting 11th in the table, six off early leaders Leicester City.

Interestingly, Man City have scored 17 goals fewer than they had at the same stage of last season, and Keane believes with Sergio Aguero struggling with injuries, they aren’t able to make their dominance count in matches – and criticised them for not investing in a striker in the summer.

“I think it’s going to be very difficult for City to win the league this year,” he told Sky Sports.

“There was no way they were going to keep up what they’ve done over the last two or three years, the same for Liverpool.

“City, when you look at their squad, and the players they’ve lost, but also to go into the season where they’re expected to challenge for every competition they’re in, to have two strikers – and Aguero being 32, having one or two problems – and then just hanging your hat on one striker, they’d have to be critical of themselves, why they didn’t strengthen in the summer with a striker.
