Offering his predictions, Owen informed BetVictor, “Chelsea continued their glorious kind underneath Thomas Tuchel with a typical 1-0 win on the London Stadium final Saturday night,
“The Blues are trying good for Champions League qualification, and the go to of struggling Fulham ought to symbolize a possible three factors.
“Though Fulham generally tend to shock us after we least count on it, I don’t assume Chelsea are the kind of aspect to modify off too usually.
“West Brom could have caught them off guard just a few weeks in the past, however I don’t see that taking place right here. It’s 2-0, Chelsea, for me.”
Talking on the Everton vs Aston Villa match, Owen stated, “Everton gained a well-earned win towards Arsenal final Friday evening, a victory they desperately wanted. Villa’s 2-2 draw towards West Brom was one other reminder of how the Villans generally is a tad unpredictable, though I do consider they’re extra suited taking part in away from house.
“That stated, Everton appeared extra organised final week than I’ve seen them in fairly just a few matches. With a supervisor as high-class as Carlo Ancelotti, it’s solely a matter of time earlier than he will get to the underside of any issues, particularly defensive ones.
“On one other day with Jack Grealish match, I feel Villa might get one thing. Nonetheless, his absence does take so much out of what Villa does effectively, so all in all, I feel Everton will take this by the slenderest of margins. Everton 1, Villa 0.”

Their final gasp purpose to take some extent from Anfield final Saturday may have ensured good vibes across the coaching floor all week.

On the Manchester United vs Liverpool fixture, Owen stated, “Each these sides performed out a 0-0 draw at Anfield earlier within the season. That was adopted by one other shut encounter within the FA Cup, a recreation United gained 3-2, so I consider we could possibly be in for one more tight match right here.
“Away from house United have been sensational this season. Their house kind had been a bit patchy up till lately. Nonetheless, they arrive into this undefeated at Outdated Trafford in six league matches.
“I feel United will fortunately give Liverpool some territory right here within the hope they’ll catch them on the counter. To some extent, I feel this may work, though it is going to be arduous to maintain Liverpool out taking part in like this over the complete 90 minutes.
“With that in thoughts, I might see this one ending all sq. with either side cancelling one another out. Man United 1, Liverpool 1.”
