Michael Owen reiterates Chelsea stance following win v Liverpool in Premier League

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen reiterates his belief that Chelsea will win the Premier League title this season.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has maintained his stance about Chelsea winning the Premier League title.

Owen had earlier predicted Jose Mourinho’s side to clinch the championship, and following their victory over Liverpool on Saturday, he has reiterated his belief.

‘Entertaining game at Anfield’, the 34-year-old wrote on Sportlobster.com. ‘I said it at the start of the season and nothing has changed my opinion.

‘This title race won't even be close. Only Man City capable of winning the league and they are playing poorly at present. You can pick holes in everyone else’.

'Yet further confirmation that The Premier League is a one horse race this season', added Owen. 'Sergio Aguero is the only reason Man City are retaining a pulse'.

Chelsea were expected to pick up all three points against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, and they did.

Despite going behind to a ninth-minute goal from Emre Can (click here to read more), the Blues did not flinch and won the contest 2-1.

Chelsea remain at the top of the Premier League table with 29 points from 11 matches, four points ahead of second-placed Southampton.

Manchester City are third in the standings with 21 points, while West Ham United are currently three points behind them in fourth.
