Roy Keane believes Manchester United will secure a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Ralf Rangnick’s side made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League with a 4-2 victory over Leeds United on Sunday.

United remain in fourth following the result and are now four points clear of fifth-placed West Ham, who have also played 26 games.

But Arsenal and Spurs both have three games in hand and Mikel Arteta’s side continued their push with a 2-1 victory over Brentford on Saturday.

Spurs also got back on track following three league defeats in a row with by registering an impressive 3-2 victory over leaders Manchester City.

However, Keane still thinks United will have enough to hold off their top-four rivals.

‘I think United will be fine for fourth, I really do,’ Keane told Sky Sports.

‘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.’

Meanwhile, Jamie Redknapp also believes Arsenal will fall short in their race with United for fourth place.

‘They had a good result [against Brentford] but I wouldn’t put them… I’ve got to be honest I don’t think they’ll make top four,’ said Redknapp.

‘I’ll have to agree with Roy in this case.’
