Ex-Liverpool striker Owen predicts Champions League winners

Michael Owen thinks Liverpool or Manchester City will win the Champions League this season and that English sides are “here to stay” in the biggest European club competition.

The Reds produced a dominant display against PSG on Tuesday despite having to wait for a Roberto Firmino injury time winner for a 3-2 victory.

And Owen was impressed with Jurgen Klopp’s men and thinks they can go all the way this season, having reached the final last campaign.

“They [Liverpool] are tailor-made for Europe, playing brilliant in the EPL,” Owen said . “I am sure they are going to win a trophy this year.”

Fellow pundit and former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand agreed with Owen, he said: “It looks like it. They are doing very well.”

Man City are still the bookmakers’ favourites for the competition and Owen thinks Pep Guardiola’s side also have a good chance.

“Our (England’s) teams are really at it,” said Owen. “I really fancy 2 teams this year, either Man City or Liverpool.

“I really think it’s going to be an English team. I think we (English teams) will be here to stay for a long period of time as well.
