Michael Owen took a look at yet another big weekend in the Premier League that includes a seismic clash between Liverpool and Manchester United

United are three points ahead of Anfield after beating Burnley in the middle of the week, while Jürgen Klopp’s team could not win every of their last three league games

Owen, who played for both clubs, believes the two title rivals will be forced to share the booty

“Well, this is sure to be a super Sunday! Manchester United are heading to Anfield, one place above their old rivals at the top, ”Owen told Bet Victor

“It was a turning point for Ole Gunnar Solkjaer’s men and a win here would certainly cement their place in the title race”

“Liverpool’s mighty home record is 67 games undefeated in the Premier League and Jurgen Klopp will seek to treat this game as yet another game in search of two consecutive Premier League titles”

“However, everyone at the club, especially the fans, is hoping for the hope that United will not come to an end when the time comes for this record run to end”

“Personally, I don’t see this run ending here, although I think it will be close”Both teams love to play counter-attacking football so I think this could be a cat and a mouse

“I think both sides are likely to give up an area so they can counter-attack If that happens, we could be stalemated at Anfield ’

Chelsea are hoping to get back on their feet after poor form over the Christmas season and face relegation-threatened Fulham on Saturday

“Unbelievable, Fulham have drawn their last five Premier League games,” added Owen. “Their late equalizer against Tottenham showed that there is no question about the fight on their side, which matters when you are at the bottom are”

“Chelsea were pulled apart in their last home game against Manchester City It’s been a Christmas season for Frank Lampard’s men to forget and they will want to get back to winning ways in their first away game of 2021

“Although Fulham played well, I think Chelsea will have too much to do in the future and with that in mind, I can see they steal it through the weird goal”

Arsenal had to dig deep into FA Cup extra time a week ago to beat Newcastle, but Owen suspects they’ll get the job done in 90 minutes this weekend

“These two were 3rd in the FA Cup game Round neck to neck for 90 minutes last week, “said Owen.” They’re playing again in the Premier League here, with both teams losing points in their midweek games”

“The pressure on Steve Bruce is mounting Your defeat to Sheffield United did not go down well with the Magpies believers and they will be demanding an answer here

“Although Arsenal pulled home in the middle of the week, the mood in the Emirates is still positive. You are certainly playing with more confidence than a few weeks ago. I think this could be tight again, but the mood in Newcastle is just that bad is i can only see one winner ‘

Owen also predicts wins for fellow Big Six Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City against Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, while believing West Ham, Leicester, Wolves and Leeds will be among the winners this weekend
