Roy Keane is adamant that Manchester United can challenge Liverpool for the Premier League title this season following their superb 6-2 victory against Leeds on Sunday.
Braces from Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes along with a goal apiece from Victor Lindelof and Daniel James saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side record a sixth Premier League win from their last seven games and move up to third in the table.
They also have a game in hand on the two sides in front of them and would move just two points behind leaders Liverpool if they win it.
Speaking at full-time McTominay insisted he and his teammates were not getting carried away or worrying too much about their position in the league.
But Keane told Sky Sports that he is convinced his former side will be beginning to believe they have a real chance of pushing Liverpool all the way.
"I don't believe McTominay there when he said they don't look at league tables," he said.
"Everybody looks at league tables. Players and staff. That's what you're playing the game for.
"You want to know where you are obviously and where you're heading to.
"It's been a nice few days for United. They had to beat Sheffield United and Leeds just to put another marker down.
"I still think Liverpool are the strongest but United I think could be the best of the rest."
United have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson's last campaign in charge in 2013.
And there is added significance in a potential battle between themselves and Liverpool in that United have currently won just one more top flight title than their bitter rivals with 20 compared to the Reds' 19.
United next face a Carabao Cup quarter-final against Everton on Wednesday before a tricky-looking Boxing Day fixture against second-placed Leicester.
