The 1-1 draw between Man City and Liverpool have been able to convince Roy Keane that the Reds team can defend the Premier League title and be champions again this season.

The Reds team emerged winners of the English Premier League last season with a big margin. The victory of Jurgen Klopp’s team was predicted long before it happened.

No winner emerged from the weekend game as Mohamed Salah scored the only goal for the Reds team from the spot after Kyle Walked fouled Sadio Mane.

Gabriel Jesus was responsible for levelling the game to steal a point for the Sky Blue team.

Although, Man City got their own share of a penalty in the game but the chance was thrown away by Kevin De Bruyne as that would have given them all three points in the game.

Man United legend, Roy Keane argued that it will be difficult for any team to stop Liverpool from winning the title again this season, lamenting that Man City are the closest but they lack goals to help challenge Liverpool.

However, Liverpool were hailed by Sky Sports pundits Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher, stressing that Liverpool are a team with great quality that have all it takes to dominate.

Meanwhile, Liverpool were hit with another worry, Trent Arnold has been injured along with Virgil Van Dijk on the sideline. This will further force manager Jurgen Klopp to make a move for a defender in the January winter transfer window.

A number of names have been mentioned as possible buys for the Reds team but manager Jurgen Klopp will be considering a lot of factors before making any move.

Liverpool want to have a player that will serve as a cover for injured Virgil Van Dijk while the player must have what it takes to pair with the Dutch defender when he returns.
