Chelsea sent brutal Man City Premier League title warning by Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher – Football.London

Chelsea have been sent a Premier League title warning following Liverpool and Man City’s thrilling 2-2 draw.

City dominated the first half but could not find the finishing touch and they were made to pay when Sadio Mane put Liverpool into the lead just before the hour mark.

Phil Foden equalised 10 minutes later before Mohamed Salah scored a brilliant individual goal to put the hosts back in front with 14 minutes remaining.

But Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected strike brought the scores level again and both sides missed chances to win it.

The result leaves Liverpool one point behind Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table, with City a further point behind in third.

But Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane has warned any side will ‘do well to finish above Man City’ as he fired a title warning to their Premier League rivals Liverpool and Chelsea.

Keane told Sky Sports: “Liverpool will certainly no doubt be in the mix because they have the goalscorers but if you analyse it Liverpool conceded three at Brentford, two today, that’s not a great side but they’ve got great players going forward.

“World-class players going forward but all of these teams, Chelsea included, will do well to finish above Man City.”

Fellow pundit Jamie Carragher also shared his thoughts on whether Chelsea will end the season top of the table.

He added: “We’ve spoke about Chelsea a lot and they’re top of the league but I just think when you see certain performances from City and Liverpool this season the stats behind the points, expected goals, shots on goal, all these metrics, Liverpool and Man City look like they have a bit of an edge.

“But listen, Chelsea are European Champions. I don’t see United getting involved.”

It comes after Chelsea went top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The home side went ahead thanks to defender Trevoh Chalobah – Ruben Loftus-Cheek flicked on a corner for Chalobah to head past Alex McCarthy in the Saints goal.

Timo Werner had an effort ruled out by VAR shortly before half-time, and Southampton capitalised through James Ward-Prowse’s penalty on the hour mark.

But then Ward-Prowse was sent off with 15 minutes remaining for a late challenge on Jorginho and the visitors could not hold on.

Werner tapped in his side’s second goal and Ben Chilwell made the points safe with a minute remaining.
