“They are just clowns” Pundit laughed Tottenham for letting Manchester United signed their star and in form player for….

Roy Keane believes that Tottenham Hotspur will now be ‘worried’ after seeing Manchester United beat Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

United went into the trip to Villa Park having won two games in a row – and they have now made it three.

Rasmus Hojlund fired United in front before Douglas Luiz hauled Villa level after the break.

United withstood major pressure from Villa and found a late winner as Scott McTominayconverted Diogo Dalot’s cross to steal a 2-1 victory.

That result moves United five points behind Villa and six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham as the battle for Champions League football heats up.

Roy Keane thinks Tottenham Hotspur will now be worried

There is a chance that the Premier League land a fifth Champions League spot but all contenders will be aiming for the top four right now.

United have struggled for much of the season but are now in promising form having seen a host of key players return from injury.

The Red Devils are on the charge now and Roy Keane thinks the competition will now be ‘worried’.

Speaking on Sky Sports (11/02, 18:30), Keane suggested that United now have real momentum after three wins in a row.

Keane added that Villa and Tottenham – the two clubs directly above United – will be ‘worried’ as United are now hunting them down.

“I think they have that momentum and the teams ahead of them, particularly Spurs and Villa who they will be hunting down will be worried, absolutely,” said Keane.

Keane may have been vocal in his criticism of United in recent years but he is always bound to side with the Red Devils over Villa or Tottenham.

Villa maybe aren’t quite the levels they were a couple of months ago but remain a constant threat with Unai Emery in charge.

We could see a situation in which United really kick on and go past Villa but Tottenham will be a different proposition.

Spurs are somewhat chaotic under Ange Postecoglou but now have a number of players back from injury and international duty.

We would back Spurs over United right now but there is a lot of football still to be played and United are making themselves a real threat to the Champions League spots.
