Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane claims that both Manchester City and Manchester United are guaranteed to be top two by the end of the season in the Premier League.
Man City narrowly won against West Ham in Etihad Stadium last week Saturday while Man United drew with Chelsea at Stanford Bridge as well, with this, League leaders “City” are 18 points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, with United enjoying a six-point cushion to the Blues.
And Keane thinks it would be good enough to win a third Premier League title for Pep Guardiola and to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United, back to the Champions League next season.

Keane also believes that Leicester City, who have suffered a raft of injuries to key players such as James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, who are most at risk of falling out of the top four.
He said on Sky Sports: “Over the last week, you’d look at Leicester,”
“They obviously messed up last year when they were in a great position, they’ve now picked up one or two injuries. Was it [Harvey] Barnes who got injured today?
[James] Maddison is struggling, I know they’ve got a nice little cushion, but you’d worry for Leicester and West Ham, when you think if Liverpool can go on a roll, can Everton pick up some results, and obviously Chelsea.
“You’d expect Man United and City to be the guaranteed top two.”
