Ex-Premier League striker Michael Owen didn’t get his predictions for the Liverpool and Chelsea games right from last weekend’s set of games in the Premier League.Michael Owen had predicted the league games involving the two teams in his column for BetVictor.
For the Liverpool game, ex-Stoke City, Newcastle United and Manchester United star Michael Owen predicted a 3-1 away win for the Reds at the expense of North London giants Tottenham Hotspur as he tipped them to continue their bid for the Premier League title. Owen was proved wrong by Spurs who battled to a 2-2 draw in an entertaining game. The North Londoners had taken the lead through star striker Harry Kane in the 13th minute for what was his second league goal of a disappointing season till date. Tottenham Hotspur led thanks to the goal from Kane until Diogo Jota levelled proceedings for Liverpool with ten minutes left on the clock in the first half. Spurs were lucky to finish the first half with the full complement of their team after Kane escaped with a yellow card for a foul on Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson.
Scottish defender Robertson was at the centre of the events that happened during the game. He was on the receiving end of the tackle from Kane and also provided the assist for the Jota goal as the two teams went into the break at 1-1. Robertson scored to put Liverpool ahead 2-1 with around twenty minutes left but the lead didn’t last for long after Alisson Becker made a big error in the Liverpool goal to allow Son Heung-Min to equalise for Spurs. Robertson was then sent off in the 77th minute for a foul on Brazilian player Emerson Royal.
With the draw at Spurs, Liverpool are now three points behind Manchester City at the Premier League summit. A win would have made it a solitary point behind the defending champions.
