Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has tipped Arsenal to battle Man City tooth and nail for this season’s Premier League title.
Owen made this known on the backdrop of the Gunners impressive 3-2 win over Liverpool at the weekend.
Recall that Arsenal are currently on top of the Premier League table with a point ahead of Manchester City after beating Liverpool over the weekend.
According to him, he cannot believe that Arsenal will be on top of the Premier League table after nine matches, adding that their current form is not a fluke.

“I never thought I would say this, but yes, I do. The way they are. There is no fluke about it, at the moment. They have got very, very good players. They are playing in a very good way. Confidence throughout the team and confidence at the club,” Owen told Premier League Productions.
“Some of the main protagonists are struggling, at the moment. So, yes, I do think they could be the biggest challengers [for the Premier League title]. I never thought I would say that. I can’t believe it.”
He added, “There is no question Arsenal deserved to win [against Liverpool]. I thought they played really well. Lots of energy. There is a great vibe throughout the stadium. Liverpool contributed; they didn’t play badly at all.
“But what I think you are seeing, which is what we expected actually before the game. And that Liverpool have dropped 5-10% on last season and Arsenal have picked things up on about 20% from last season. The tide is turning slightly. I thought Arsenal deserved it.”
Owen met Louise Bonsall at primary school in 1984. The couple bought Lower Soughton Manor in Flintshire, North Wales, where they keep his cars and her horses. They were engaged on 14 February 2004, and married on 24 June 2005,] at the Carden Park Hotel in Chester, Cheshire.
The couple had initially planned to get married at their home, but changed plans when they were informed that if a licence was granted for a marriage ceremony the venue must be made available for other weddings for three years, so opted to marry in a register office in informal clothing and have a lavish reception the next day in the grounds of their home.
