Manchester United legend Roy Keane says the current Liverpool side have been brilliant in the recent years, however, they can only be called a ‘great’ team when they start winning Premier League trophies on a consistent basis.

Liverpool are sitting on top of the Premier League table having 13 points more than second-placed Manchester City . and there is a strong possibility that they will be winning the English Premier League title for the first time.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have only dropped points on one occasion in the English top-flight this term as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.

And the Reds will look to get revenge on their bitter rivals this weekend when they play host to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at Anfield.

Many are already likening Liverpool to legendary teams of the Premier League era, including some of Sir Alex Ferguson’s sides which dominated in the 1990s and 2000s and Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ of the 2003/04 season.

But Keane took exception to these comparisons ahead of Sunday’s clash during a heated exchange with ex-Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness.

This team have been brilliant in Europe over the last few years and everyone is getting carried away with them because they’ve been so brilliant but this will be their first league title,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“You’ve gotta win a few league titles!”

“Close, but you said they finished second! Second is no good to anybody,” the former United captain hit back.

“I doesn’t matter how many points you get if you finish second… do me a favour!

“What do you get for second, a pat on the back?!”

Despite the odds being stacked against United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged his players to have “arrogance” and believe in themselves at Anfield.
