EPL: Michael Owen predicts Chelsea vs West Brom, Brighton vs Man United

 


Former England striker, Michael Owen, has predicted Chelsea to beat West Brom in today’s Premier League fixture at the Hawthorns Stadium.

Owen also backed Manchester United to defeat Brighton at the Falmer Stadium.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “With heavy defeats against Leicester and Everton in their opening two games, there is no respite for newly promoted West Brom.

“Frank Lampard will have been disappointed with his team’s lacklustre display against Liverpool on Sunday when they were well beaten in a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

“It may take some time for him to bed in all his new signings, but he’ll be demanding a much-improved performance against the Baggies, and I fancy a comfortable 3-0 win for the Blues.”

On the Brighton vs Man United game, Owen said: “Brighton were impressive in their 3-0 win away at Newcastle last weekend with a couple of Neal Maupay goals in the first seven minutes set them on their way to a comfortable victory.

“On the other hand, Manchester United were very disappointing in their opening match of the new campaign and looked lethargic and distinctly off the pace in their 3-1 loss against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can point to a lack of rest and preparation time between the end of last season and the start of this, but he’ll be expecting much more from his team, and I expect a fully-fired up Manchester United to come away from the South Coast with all three points.

“I am going with a closely fought 1-0 victory to United.”

The match kick-off time for West Brom vs Chelsea is 5:30 pm, while that of Brighton vs Man United is 12:30 pm

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Ngozi Nlewedim, popularly known as Erica, has berated fellow housemates, Laycon, for gossiping about her with the others. Laycon, who has a very strong feeling for Erica, seems to have been affected by the outcome of rejection as the Abia-born female housemate picked Kiddwaya over him. For this reason, Laycon has been seen at different times and locations discussing Erica and telling fellow housemates how he feels being rejected. Erica had once made it clear that while she is mentally attracted to Laycon, she is physically attracted to her lover, Kiddwaya.
