Everton are not EPL title contenders this season – Roy Keane

Last Tuesday, Everton secured a 2-1 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers to grab their 10th Premier League 2020-21 campaign victory, and they’re just five points behind Manchester United.
It is expected that the title race for the season will be a highly contested one, given that very little separates the top six, and Everton could be regarded as one of the title contenders.

Sky Sports expert Roy Keane does not believe that, when asked about it, they have a chance of challenging for the title.

“I wouldn’t be including Everton, I’d say forget Everton in terms of winning the title,” the United legend said.

“They have done great, I’m surprised they are up there where they are, but I don’t think they will last the pace.”

The Toffees have a quality team, but it looks beyond their reach to compete against the likes of City, Liverpool and Man Utd for the top prize.

In their next Premier League fixture, they host Leicester, and the clash would be another litmus test for their slim title credentials following the 2-0 King Power Stadium victory last month.
