Michael Owen makes Premier League predictions for Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea vs Manchester City

first_imgPhil Foden starred as Manchester City thumped Burnley on Monday night (Picture: Getty)Owen’s former club, Manchester United, play host to Sheffield United on Wednesday for what could be a decisive match in the race for a top-four finish. Predicting a ‘relatively comfortable’ 2-1 victory for the Red Devils at Old Trafford, Owen said: ‘Manchester United’s point at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Friday means that they are now unbeaten in their last 12 games in all competitions (won eight) and have pretty much picked up where they left off prior to the lockdown.‘Sheffield United on the other hand, will be playing their third game in a week and they certainly haven’t been able to get back to pre-lock-down form. ‘Their 3-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United was their biggest loss since losing by a similar score to Middlesbrough back in August 2018.‘Back to back matches without scoring a goal will undoubtedly have knocked the Blades’ confidence and with a relatively small squad to choose from as well as the absence of on-loan keeper Dean Henderson due to the conditions of his loan move, I fancy Manchester United to continue their impressive form with a relatively comfortable 2-1 home victory.’What will the result be at Old Trafford?Manchester United win0%Draw0%Sheffield United win0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your results Comment Advertisement Michael Owen makes Premier League predictions for Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea vs Manchester City Michael Owen has delivered his predictions for the Premier League’s upcoming games (Picture: Getty)Michael Owen predicts both Manchester United and Arsenal will secure their first wins since the season’s restart over the coming days and has backed Chelsea to hold Manchester City to a draw at Stamford Bridge in his tips for Matchday 31.Premier League teams have had more than three months without top-flight action to prepare for the run-in and managers will by now hope their players are up to speed from both a mental and physical perspective.Liverpool’s stalemate with Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park gave second-placed City the opportunity to close the gap to *just* 20 points at the top of the table.

There’s no doubt that they’re not playing at their fluent best and that was also the case, prior to lock-down.
