MICHAEL OWEN has backed "improving" Manchester United to challenge Liverpool for the Premier League title next season.
The former England forward is already looking ahead to the 2020-21 season after the Reds finally got their hands on their first-ever Premier League crown.
Owen led Liverpool close to breaking their duck with 29 goals in 2001-02 – but did eventually win his own title at Old Trafford in 2010-11.
And he's backed Man Utd – along with Chelsea – to put more pressure on dominant duo Liverpool and Man City next season after showing improvements post-lockdown.
Owen told Premier League Productions: "I think [Liverpool] are a very, very strong team that’s probably going to be strong for some time.
"[But] that’s not to say they can’t be caught.
"Manchester City are a phenomenal team and if they turn it on we’re going to have a great title race.
"Manchester United are the first team outside those two that spring to mind because they’re improving at a rapid rate."
