Roy Keane believes Manchester United can push Liverpool for the Premier League title and could be the reigning champions' closest challengers.
The former Man Utd captain has been a fierce critic this season of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.
But after watching Man Utd dismantle Leeds United 6-2 on Sunday, Keane has acknowledged his opinion has shifted.
"I think over the last few months they've been heavily criticised, particularly over the home record. I've been quite critical of the back four, the goalkeeper, questioning where this team is going, but the name of this game is proving people wrong," Keane told Sky Sports. "Maybe, just maybe, this group of players can do that."
The thumping victory over Leeds has propelled Man United to third in the league table, five points behind Liverpool but with a game in hand.
