Roy Keane has performed a drastic U-turn in the top four race as he predicts Arsenal will now beat Manchester United to the final Champions League spot.

Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea make up the top three and are well clear of the chasing pack with Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham all in the hunt for a fourth-place finish in the Premier League

United looked to be in pole position to secure it after their 4-2 win over Leeds, but they followed that up with a disappointing draw at home to Watford and a disastrous derby day defeat to Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have picked up three wins in a row, including a 3-2 victory over Watford on Sunday.

Keane was confident that United would qualify for the Champions League after picking up three points at Elland Road, but he has since reversed his prediction.

Roy Keane has changed his mind on the top four race



HAVE YOUR SAY! Who will finish in the top four? Comment below.

“I think United will be fine for fourth, I really do,” Keane told Sky Sports after Man United’s win over Leeds.

“There’s been lots of noises about players wanting to leave, contract situations with Pogba and Jesse Lingard, and people like that.

“Focus on the next few months, big few months for Man United, try and get fourth.

“They’ve a big European game coming up, focus on that, and then regroup again in the summer regarding obviously a manager, they’ll be looking at recruitment, but keep their heads and keep focused and they should be okay.”

The former United midfielder hasn’t taken long to change his mind, however, as the pundit now reckons Arsenal are favorites to finish fourth.

Keane was impressed with their late win over Wolves at the Emirates which proved to him they are not a “soft” team, something they have been widely criticized for in recent seasons.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s been an amazing turnaround considering where they were at the start of the season, and now they’re probably favorites to finish in the top four.

“We’ve always questioned whether there’s a bit of softness to them but they’re in a good moment and they’ve always had that quality.

“Against Wolves they found a way to win the football match, they kept going and grabbed a late goal, that’s the key to success, you can have your off days but you find a way to win and it was a huge three points for them .”
