Michael Owen predicts outcome of Liverpool v Man City
Liverpool legend Michael Owen describes Manchester City as beatable
Michael Owen has described Manchester City as “beatable” ahead of Sunday’s League Cup final at Wembley.
Owen’s former club Liverpool are City’s opposition at the home of English football as the Reds look to win the League Cup for a record ninth time.
Liverpool have a chance, no question
The retired England striker won the competition twice during his Anfield career thanks to victories over Birmingham City and Manchester United.
City are in fourth place and nine points ahead of the Merseyside outfit in the Premier League.
However, former Reds forward Owen is adamant that anything can happen given City’s inconsistent performances this season.
“The pressure is always on when you play for Liverpool,” Owen told Liverpool Echo.
“It doesn’t matter what competition you’re in, you have to win. It’s as simple as that. Every game is huge.
“It’s an interesting one to call, I think.
“City are definitely beatable. Liverpool showed that earlier in the season, and Leicester showed it at the Etihad recently too. It’s a cup final, a one-off, so anything can happen – as cliched as that sounds. Liverpool have a chance, no question.”
Liverpool have won three of their last four games against the Eastlands outfit.
The Reds were 4-1 winners against the Citizens in their only Premier League meeting of the 2015/16 season so far.
City will make the trip to Anfield in the Premier League on Wednesday night just three days after the League Cup final.
