Latest Chelsea news today, Manchester United latest news today, Liverpool latest news today, Tuchel latest news today 2022, breaking news from Stamford Bridge live update.
Former Manchester United star, Michael Owen, has predicted some of the FA Cup third-round matches that will be played this weekend.
Chelsea will host Chesterfield on Saturday evening at Stamford Bridge, while Manchester City will face Swindon Town on Friday night.
Arsenal will face Nottingham Forest on Sunday and Liverpool will tackle Shrewsbury Town at Anfield.
Leicester City will clash with Watford on Saturday, while Tottenham Hotspur will face Morecambe on Sunday and Manchester United will host Aston Villa on Monday night.
Providing his predictions, Owen told BetVictor:
“This looks like a complete mismatch. City are unstoppable in the cups. Pep will rotate a few players, but Man City’s squad is exceptional, so that won’t be an issue. I’m going for Man City to win this 4-0.”
On the Leicester City vs Watford game, Owen said,
“Leicester haven’t quite been at their best in the league, so they’ll be really up for the FA Cup. The winners last season, I can see them going far this season as well. I’m going for 2-0 Leicester against struggling Watford.”
Speaking on the Chelsea vs Chesterfield match, Owen said:
“What a story this is for non-league Chesterfield. I hope the club enjoys their day at Stamford Bridge. It might be less enjoyable on the pitch though. I can only see a comfortable win for last season’s beaten finalists. 5-0 Chelsea.”
The Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Town tie, Owen said,
“FA Cup glory is the one thing missing in Jurgen Klopp’s trophy cabinet, so I’m sure he’ll want to go far this season. This should be a comfortable tie. Liverpool will no doubt rest players, but they will have too much quality. 5-0 to Liverpool.”
On the Tottenham vs Morecambe game, Owen said, “This should be a straightforward tie for a Spurs side, who have improved under Antonio Conte. Morecambe are in a relegation battle in League 1, so I’m going for 3-0 to Spurs.”
Comment on the Manchester United vs Aston Villa, Owen said,
“He’s only been in the job for a short time, but pressure is on Ralf Rangnick. Performances haven’t been good, and the club is desperate to win some silverware. Villa will be up for this and there’s no way Steven Gerrard will play a weakened side here. United might, and I can see Villa edging this. 2-1 Aston Villa.”
