Martin Keown, a former Arsenal defender, believes that Liverpool are now the top contenders to win the Premier League title.

Keown expressed this opinion during an interview on TNT Sports, highlighting the importance of Liverpool’s upcoming match against Manchester United on Sunday.

He mentioned that if Jurgen Klopp‘s team manages to defeat Sheffield United at home on Thursday night, they could potentially move to the top of the table.

However, Keown emphasized that the real test will be the match against their rivals on Sunday.

He said: “It’s wide open between now and the end of the season,” he said.

“Liverpool have the points; they look favourites. But Arsenal have to get the job done. City, we know, are quite magnificent. They’re born winners in that group and their manager is a serial winner.

“The difference this year is that they can win every game, but it doesn’t mean that they’re going to be champions. Liverpool have the points. I think they look better but all three of them have got to play Spurs.

“I’d be going into their game against Manchester United saying ‘If we can beat Man United, who finished our season in the FA Cup, we can be Premier League champions.’ It’s that big. I definitely feel that [it could be the turning point].”
