Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has made a fresh Premier League title prediction next the outcome of some matches played on Saturday.
He said that this flavor is set for an ‘unbelievable’ title race, adding that Chelsea and Manchester United’s defeats to Aston Villa and Man City respectively exhibit “everyone is beatable” and “no one is going to run absent with it.”
Chelsea were handed their foremost defeat of the flavor in all competitions by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City through a Gabriel Jesus’ second-half strike piece United also lost their foremost league game of the flavor as Aston Villa.
“Manchester City’s win does wonders for them but I don’t think they will ever believe they can’t win a match because they’re such a talented squad,” Owen told Premier League productions.
“What it does do is breath a sigh of relief for the repose of the league because everyone has been thinking, ‘wow, this new Chelsea squad appear unbelievable… how can we trounce them? How do we score against them?’
“There’s been a feeling over the lastly week or 2 and everyone was saying Chelsea would win the league. But things alter, Man City and Liverpool will play them and things will alter.
“At the time whether you pose a gun to my top dog and asked me who would win it I would have said the same thing: Chelsea.
“Everyone was swaying towards Chelsea. At present I think people will realise everyone is still beatable.
“This is going to be an unbelievable title race, no one is going to run absent with it. Man City, the reigning champions, have just gone to champions-elect Chelsea and not only won, but outplayed them.
“So I think people will have a new sentiment at present, some people will still think Chelsea and they’ve got a great chance, but I just think a lot of people were getting carried absent with Chelsea. It shows they are human after all.”
