Michael Owen predicts where Chelsea, Tottenham will finish
The former Liverpool striker expects Chelsea to beat Tottenham to the Premier League title this season
Michael Owen is backing Chelsea to win the Premier League title despite coming under pressure from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues are sitting seven points clear at the top of the table despite Tottenham’s best efforts to add some nerves to Chelsea’s title bid.
Indeed, Mauricio Pochettino’s side moved to within four points of the leaders last weekend thanks to a 4-0 win against Watford in the early kick-off.
However, Chelsea restored their seven-point cushion with a 3-1 win at Bournemouth thanks to goals from Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso.
Spurs will be in action in Saturday’s early kick-off again this weekend when the Cherries make the trip to White Hart Lane.
Chelsea, on the other hand, will take on former manager Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
While Owen doesn’t believe Tottenham will win the title this season, the former England striker is confident that Spurs will challenge for the Premier League crown next term.
“They are likely to fall just short again this season in the title race, but they will add quality to their already impressive squad in the summer and it would be no surprise if they improved again next term,” Owen told Bet Victor.
