Michael Owen is tipping Liverpool FC to continue their fine start to the new season by beating Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Reds are preparing to travel to Old Trafford this weekend looking to continue their incredible run in the top flight, after having won all eight of their Premier League games this term.

Liverpool FC are currently flying high at the top of the Premier League table and have an eight-point lead over second placed Manchester City as things stand.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have been struggling to find consistent form in recent weeks and they currently find themselves down in 12th place and a staggering 15 points behind Jurgen Klopp’s pace-setters.

Former Liverpool FC and Manchester United star Owen feels that the Merseyside outfit will have too much for their rivals when they take them on this weekend.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Manchester United have won just two of their last 13 league games and a barometer of their performance at St James’ Park last time was that central defender Harry Maguire had more touches in the Magpies penalty area than any other United player.

“Liverpool will equal Manchester City’s record of 18 successive league wins if they win at Old Trafford.

“Jurgen Klopp’s side have ridden their luck in recent weeks, but I expect them to have too much pace and aggression for this United side, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hopeful that he can call on the services of at least a couple of his key players returning from injury or illness.”

Manchester United have so far only won two of their opening eight Premier League games so far this season to heap pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Indeed, the Red Devils have only won one of their last five outings in the top flight, and they have already conceded eight goals.

Liverpool FC, meanwhile, are aiming to win their second major trophy under Klopp after the German coach led them to Champions League glory last term.
