Roy Keane predicts where Man Utd will finish in the Premier League, fans won't be happy

Roy Keane predicts where Man Utd will finish in the Premier League, fans won't be happy

Keane has made his prediction.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has predicted where his former club will finish in the Premier League this season.

United are opening their 2023/24 campaign against Wolves at Old Trafford, with manager Erik ten Hag giving debuts to Andre Onana and Mason Mount.

The first half didn't go to plan, however, with United not able to penetrate Wolves' defence whilst giving up opportunities at the other end.

After half-time, Matheus Cunha should have put the visitors ahead when his volley hit the post from point-blank range.

Wolves players appeared willing to run through United's midfield consistently in the second half, which will no doubt have concerned Ten Hag on the opening weekend of the season.

But they did secure a 1-0 win through Raphael Varane's second half goal, despite a controversial decision not to award Wolves a penalty late on.

Prior to the game, Keane predicted where he believes United will finish in the Premier League this season - and it doesn't make good reading for supporters.

Keane stated his belief that a title challenge is too far for Ten Hag's side this season - unless Manchester City have a significant drop in form and increase in injuries compared to last season.

He did, however, add that he thinks United will finish in the top four, but must contend with a number of challengers in order to get there.

He explained (quotes via Metro): "No, I don't think so [United challenging for the title]. I just think it's so hard to see beyond Man City.

"Again, I've said it before, unless they really drop off and get really bad injuries and lose that hunger, then I think the other teams have a chance.

"United will be top four. Arsenal have improved, look at Newcastle. Aston Villa will respond well [to losing to Newcastle on Saturday]. Obviously Liverpool and Chelsea.

"For a lot of those teams, it's about being top four, and that's the same for United."
