Prediction Time – Michael Owen predicts Chelsea vs Manchester United

MICHAEL OWEN isn’t expecting Sunday’s clash between Manchester United and Chelsea to be a classic.

Chelsea have already beaten Manchester United twice this season, claiming 4-0 and 1-0 wins in the Premier League and FA Cup respectively.

The Blues currently sit seven points clear at the top of the table and look set to be lifting their second title in three years come May.

But Owen doesn’t reckon the west London outfit will have it all their own way when they go to Old Trafford for a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho this weekend.

Tipping a goalless draw, he told BetVictor: “Chelsea have already beaten Manchester United twice at Stamford Bridge this season.

“Jose Mourinho will not want his old club to virtually wrap up the Premier League title at Old Trafford on Sunday.

“I am actually writing this en route to Anderlecht and United’s Europa League quarterfinal first leg tie.

“Everyone involved with the club is well aware that Europa League glory represents their most likely route back into the Holy Grail of the Champions League this season.

“I don’t expect to see a classic and perhaps both sides would take a point now.”
