Michael Owen makes Man City title claim

Manchester City are bigger title challengers than Manchester United.

The Red Devils are joint-top with Liverpool at the Premier League table following their 2-1 victory against Aston Villa.

Man City are sitting at 8th in the Premier League table, seven points away from the league leaders.

Former United forward Michael Owen still had some reservations about Solskjaer’s team despite their recent upturn in form and believes the team is too dependent on Bruno Fernandes.

Owen said: “I’m not sure they can win the title with (just) him (Fernandes) to be honest. I think they’re a brilliant counter-attacking team, against the bigger and better teams they are exceptional and can give anyone a problem.

“The question I have is when they’re in possession against teams like Wolves and trying to break them down.

“I watched them the other day and there were no chances. Listen, they’re right in the mix, no question about it.

“They’re second on goal difference, but are they as rounded a team as Liverpool or Man City? I still think they’re a step behind and I still think it will be a struggle for them to win the title. But the way they’re playing, anything is possible.”
