Manchester derby: Sbobet United legend Keane on City’s title ambitions

Alex Ferguson may have sbobet dubbed last weekend’s clash with Liverpool as “the biggest match in world football,” but this weekend’s Manchester derby will be a better reflection of the balance of power in England’s Premier League.
City travel to Old Trafford with a two-point lead over Ferguson’s second-placed defending champions United after eight rounds, and victory on Sunday would be a major statement of the title ambitions of Roberto Mancini’s expensively-assembled squad.
“Over the last year sbobet or two, City have made a lot of progress getting into the Champions League, and Mancini won the FA Cup, but talk is cheap — it’s all about winning these games. But it’s easier said than done,” United legend Roy Keane told CNN on Friday.
“What City learned from last year was that they drew a lot of games. If you want to win the Premier League you’ve got to win matches. sbobet For City to make real progress, can they go on and beat some of the big boys?
“City have had a good start to this season, but they’ve played nobody yet. It’s when they turn up against Chelsea, Liverpool and United on Sunday. Even Arsenal are still a big test for anybody, even though they’re having a hard time.
I’d nearly give sbobet my wife and kids away to go back and play one of these games. That’s what you miss
Roy Keane
“United have done that over the years, they’ve always been capable of winning these big, big matches. United have been down this road sbobet many times before, but City haven’t. People have been asking if City can go on and win the league … we’ll find out on Sunday.”
First European wins for Manchester clubs
Keane captained United and won seven of the club’s record 19 English titles plus the European Champions League during his 12-year stint at Old Trafford. City, by comparison, have been domestic champions only twice — and not since 1968.
