Michael Owen reacts to Chelsea’s 3-1 win at Man City on Twitter

The ex Liverpool and Manchester United striker lavishes praise on Chelsea after their 3-1 win at Manchester City

Michael Owen hailed Chelsea’s superb counter-attacking performance after Antonio Conte’s side were 3-1 winners at Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues were looking to continue an seven-game winning run that started after a 3-0 loss to title rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in September.

Chelsea managed to come from 1-0 down to ease to a 2-1 victory over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

And the Blues conceded a first-half goal in consecutive weeks after Gary Cahill inadvertently put the ball past Thibaut Courtois in the first half.

Diego Costa restored parity in the 60th minute with a superb finish before Willian completed a sweeping counter-attack to edge the visitors into a slender lead.

Belgium midfielder Eden Hazard completed the west London side’s stunning comeback to seal three points and hoist Conte’s side four points clear of Manchester City.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen was full of praise for the Premier League leaders on Twitter after their 3-1 win.
