Former Manchester United striker Owen is backing Manchester City to secure a 2-0 win over Championship side Swansea City in the FA Cup fifth round.
“Swansea are going well in the Championship; however, they face the ultimate test up against a City side that are playing as well as they have for some time,” Owen told BetVictor.
“I really like Swansea’s style of play, but I do believe that their main target is promotion this season.
“Also, I City seem hungrier than ever right now and I reckon they’ll not only win here but be in the mix when the medals are handed out in May.”
Manchester City have won their last six games against Swansea, including a 3-2 win over the Welsh side in the FA Cup back in 2019.
