Another round of Premier League games is almost upon us and Michael Owen has set his sights on the latest round of fights in the British top flight.
Without a doubt, the biggest game of the weekend takes place in Anfield.
The Liverpool league leader, who protects an undefeated 38-game record, will welcome Manchester United’s bitter rivals to Merseyside – two teams for which Owen has distinguished himself during his illustrious career.
And the former British international is struggling to look beyond the victory of European Liverpool and world champions.
“Wayne Rooney scored the only goal of the game the last time Manchester United won at Anfield more than four years ago, and it’s hard to see any further victory for Jurgen Klopp’s escape leaders Sunday in the big game. of the weekend, “Owen said Bet Victor.
‘It is well documented that Liverpool have only lost two points so far this season and that it was on the downside at Old Trafford in October. This statistic will not be lost on Jurgen Klopp or on the players and supporters of the Reds who will want to beat all the other 19 teams en route to their first Premier League title.
‘United have an exciting advantage, but Liverpool’s energy and quality are lacking in the middle of the field and that’s where I expect the game to be won. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 51 home games – I expect them to do 52 and count in one of the most iconic games of the season. “
Chelsea are hoping to extend their five-point lead over United in fourth and final place in the Champions League and to travel to Newcastle in a game that Owen is claiming to win.
“An excellent point for Newcastle at Molineux over the weekend, but I’m not convinced that they will be able to take advantage of that result against a Chelsea team that was too good for a disappointing Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday,” he added.
‘The Blues have stumbled on four and have kept their cards clean in the last two games. They can simply get out of United in what promises to be a fun fight at St James ‘Park.’

Arsenal, without pausing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, welcomes Sheffield United recently promoted by Chris Wilder to the Emirates while Mikel Arteta tries to help his team climb the table.
“Arsenal had to settle for a point at Selhurst Park on Saturday when they played the last quarter of the game with 10 men following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s red card,” said Owen.
‘The Gunners have to do without their striker for the next three games, but I think they will keep all three points against Sheffield United in the Emirates.

‘The Gunners were very poor in the return game on Bramall Lane earlier in the season, but they are a different team under Mikel Arteta who plays with more energy and passion.
‘The Blades have only lost to Anfield and Etihad in the league so far this season, but I expect Arsenal to keep the points.’
