Michael Owen is backing Liverpool FC to make it back to back wins in the Premier League by beating Crystal Palace in the top flight on Saturday lunchtime.

The Reds head to Selhurst Park after the international break after having thrashed Watford 5-0 in their most recent Premier League outing at Anfield.

Liverpool FC are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and finish in the top four this season and secure qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will also take on Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash at Anfield next week as they look to progress in Europe’s elite club competition.

And former Reds striker Owen is fully expecting to see the Merseyside outfit claim all three points when the make the trip to south London on Saturday lunchtime.

Writing in his blog for BetVictor, Owen said: “You have to go back twenty years for the last time Liverpool did the double over Palace in the Premier League but I will be surprised if the Eagles prevent the Reds from taking the points at Selhurst Park in the early kick-off on Saturday.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table under Klopp last season as they secured a spot in the Champions League for next season.

The Reds are aiming to win the Champions League this season and lift their first trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.
