Michael Owen is backing Manchester United and Liverpool FC to share the spoils in a feisty Premier League encounter at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit will make the short trip to Old Trafford in the Premier League in search of a fourth successive top-flight victory.

Liverpool FC will be feeling buoyed after the 18-time English champions booked their place in the Champions League last 16 thanks to a 5-0 aggregate win against FC Porto.

Manchester United came from 2-0 down to rescue a 3-2 win at Crystal Palace on Monday night courtesy of goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

The Red Devils are in second place and two points clear of Liverpool FC in the race to finish behind Manchester City in the Premier League table in the 2017-18 season.

Former Liverpool FC and Manchester United striker Owen is backing the bitter Premier League rivals to settle for a point each at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

“No side have scored more away league goals than Liverpool (34) in the five big European leagues and I think the Reds will score at Old Trafford in what promises to be a feisty, entertaining clash between these two huge clubs,” Owen told BetVictor.

Liverpool FC are looking to finish in second place in the Premier League for fourth time after the Reds ended up as runners-up in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

The Reds signed Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk in a £75m deal from Premier League rivals Southampton in the January transfer window.
