ROY KEANE has backed Manchester United to secure a top-four finish after beating Leeds.
United raced to a 2-0 but were pegged back with two goals in under 60 seconds in the second half.
They needed goals from Fred and Anthony Elanga to restore their lead and avoid an embarrassing slip up.
And their resilient fightback won praise even from the usually hard to please Keane, United’s former captain.
He said on Sky Sports: “I think United will be fine for fourth, I really do.
“There’s been lots of noises about players wanting to leave, contract situations with Pogba and Jesse Lingard, and people like that.
“Focus on the next few months, big few months for Man United, try and get fourth.
“They’ve a big European game coming up, focus on that, and then regroup again in the summer regarding obviously a manager, they’ll be looking at recruitment, but keep their heads and keep focused and they should be OK.”
United are now four points ahead of West Ham and Arsenal following their win at Elland Road.
Jadon Sancho helped put them on their way by setting up Fred – and was singled out by Keane.
He said: “He’s getting a bit of swagger back, and it’s nice to see because he was getting heavily criticised.”
Former Tottenham striker Roy Keane added: “He was brilliant today, Sancho. The last few weeks he’s been fantastic.
“When he first came, every time he got the ball he was going backwards and playing simple passes.
“Now in the last four weeks I’ve seen him, when he gets it in 1v1 situations, he’s running at people, he’s nutmegging people.
“His numbers at Borussia Dortmund were incredible, he needs to do it now. He seems to be starting to deliver now with goals and assists.”
