Michael Owen’s Premier League predictions including Liverpool vs Man City clash

Michael Owen has predicted the weekend’s Premier League ties where Liverpool are in action against Manchester City while Chelsea and Manchester United look to get back on track

Guardiola makes title race admission ahead of Liverpool trip

Michael Owen has backed his former club Liverpool to pip Manchester City to all three points in this weekend’s blockbuster clash.

The former England striker has previewed the weekend’s games and made predictions for another tight set of Premier League clashes.

Owen previously claimed that “everyone is beatable” in the title race and has backed Liverpool to beat City 2-1 to maintain their unbeaten run.

In what will undoubtedly be this weekend’s standout tie, City come into the game at the end of a tough week having won away at Chelsea, and lost away at PSG before travelling to Anfield.

The clash will be a close one as Jurgen Klopp’s high-flying Reds will hope to continue the form which saw them smash Porto in midweek.

Guardiola will be looking for a response from his team who were unable to take anything from their game against PSG despite dominating.

Beyond the main event, Owen has cast his eye across the rest of the Premier League fixtures.

The player turned pundit has predicted a strong win 3-1 for Manchester United over Everton, even though his old club have looked shaky in recent weeks.

Everton come into the game level on points with United, having quietly had a decent start to the season.

Chelsea have slumped to back-to-back defeats for the first time under Thomas Tuchel recently, but Owen backs them to buck the losses with a good 3-0 win over Southampton.

The beginning of the season has proven that taking the game to Chelsea can warrant results, as City proved, and with key players injured the Blues may struggle.









Off the back of the high of victory in the North London derby, Owen thinks Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will not have enough to beat Brighton, predicting a shock 2-1 win for the Seagulls.

Brighton are sixth currently, having had a good start to the campaign.

Meanwhile, Owen thinks Leeds will shake their winless start to the season by beating 12th placed Watford 2-1.

Newly-promoted Brentford have impressed so far this season including in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

But Owen thinks they won’t have enough to beat West Ham as he predicts a 2-1 win for the Hammers.

Tottenham, after managing three straight wins, have looked uninspired under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

Owen predicts they will have to settle for a 1-1 draw with an Aston Villa side who have impressed of late, particularly in last weekend’s 1-0 win over Man Utd.

In the battle between the Premier League’s basement boys, Owen feels Norwich’s abysmal start to the season will only continue, tipping Sean Dyche’s Burnley to earn a much-needed 2-0 victory.

If Norwich do lose, they will equal the record for worst start to a Premier League campaign ever with seven straight losses.

Only Portsmouth in 2009/10 and Crystal Palace 2018/19 have started the campaign with such a dreadful run.

After a shaky start, Leicester have been backed to address their disappointing recent run with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.

And Wolves have put in a number of good performances so far this season, but not necessarily reaped the results.

Yet Owen believes that could change as they welcome Newcastle to Molineux, with him forecasting a narrow 1-0 win.
