Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw by Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium
in what was an exciting Premier League fixture, Mohamed Salah drew first blood for the visitors after converting
a penalty in the 13th minute before Gabriel Jesus pulled the hosts level in the 31st minute.
Kevin De Bruyne missed a golden opportunity to put City in the driver’s seat after missing from the spot
in the 42nd minute.
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 criticized 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.
