Michael Owen predicts Queens Park Rangers to suffer relegation from Premier League

Former Manchester United and Liverpool star Michael Owen predicts Leicester City, Queens Park Rangers and Burnley to be relegated from the Premier League.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has written on Sportlobster.com that Queens Park Rangers will suffer relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.

London outfit Rangers are currently second from bottom in the league table with 19 points from 23 matches, a point behind 17th-placed Burnley.

At the start of the season, Owen did not think that QPR would be relegated, but he has now changed his mind due to West Bromwich Albion’s performances under manager Tony Pulis.

“At the start of the season I said Leicester, West Brom and Burnley would go down,” the 35-year-old wrote on Sportlobster.com. “Pulis has done pretty well at West Brom so far, so as things stand I'd say Leicester, QPR and Burnley.”

Leicester City and QPR both are currently in the bottom three, while Burnley are a place and a point above Hull City, who are 18th in the standings at the moment.

Meanwhile, West Brom are 15th in the league table with 22 points from 23 matches, three points above the relegation zone.

Leicester look doom and gloom. The Foxes have been arguably the worst team in the Premier League so far this campaign, and there are no discernible signs of improvements.

Hull have a weak team and are struggling for goals, and they should be considered as one of the top three favourites to go down.

With Aston Villa, Sunderland and Crystal Palace all just above the relegation zone, it does indeed look like the battle to avoid the drop to the Championship will go down to the wire.
