'There is certainly a feel-good factor back at United,' says former skipper Roy Keane. Manchester United had an upturn in form before the COVID-19 brought football to a standstill, but Roy Keane insists there is still a lot of work to be done on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team before they can be seen as genuine title contenders again. "There is certainly a feel-good factor back at United over the last couple of games," Keane, who won seven Premier League titles during his 12 seasons at Old Trafford, told The Football Show.

"But it's still a long way back for United yet, they are a long way behind Manchester City and Liverpool. The signs are obviously a lot better than they were 6-12 months ago, the signings have all settled in well and will only get better with time. "If we get around to playing games and they can have a good finish to the season, get one or two very good players again in the summer then that's another big step in terms of their recovery, but there is still a bit to go."
