Michael Owen is backing Manchester United to claim a solid victory over Stoke City on Saturday and continue their strong start to the season.

The Red Devils have been in fine form so far this season after having won all three of their opening Premier League games.

Jose Mourinho’s men are leading the way at the top of the table after having won all of their games and scoring 10 goals with no reply in the process.

Stoke, though, have been in good form themselves and have already recorded a win over Arsenal in front of their home fans this season.

Manchester United look as though they will be a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League this season and Owen is tipping them to secure three points on Saturday against the Potters.

Former Manchester United striker Owen wrote in his column for BetVictor: “As impressive as Watford have been, Manchester United have been even more so and have been the biggest movers in the betting for the Premier League Title.

‘United are 8/15 to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season in the Potteries and should shorten further from their current price of 2/1 with BetVictor to be crowned Champions in May.”

Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League and won the EFL Cup and Europa League last season.
