Michael Owen backing ‘improving’ Man Utd to challenge Liverpool for the title next season

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."
