Michael Owen predicts Leicester City v Liverpool

Michael Owen looks ahead to Leicester City’s Premier League clash against Liverpool tonight.

Michael Owen has backed Liverpool to pick up all three points from the Premier League clash against Leicester City tonight.

The Reds will be away team as the match is at the King Power Stadium, but former Liverpool striker Owen is confident that Brendan Rodgers’s side will emerge victorious.

“One could argue that both sides are struggling for form despite Glen Johnson’s late winner for the Reds against Stoke at the weekend but bottom-of-the-table Leicester look to be sinking fast and badly need a result to get the Foxes’ season back on track,” the 34-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Liverpool have not lost three away games on the bounce since April 2012 and I expect the Reds to build on their win against the Potters and take all three points.”

Liverpool will be favourites to win tonight, but they could still slip up as they look shaky at the back.

The Merseyside outfit returned to winning ways at the weekend they got the better of Stoke City 1-0 at Anfield, but it was only because of a 85th-minute goal from Glen Johnson.

Leicester’s honeymoon period is well and truly over as the Foxes are currently at the foot of the Premier League table with 10 points from 13 matches, but they could still stun Liverpool at home.

Tonight’s match does not promise to be hugely entertaining, and perhaps a single goal will decide the outcome.
