Liverpool will be looking to hammer home their advantage this weekend in the capital while old rivalries renew at Old Trafford with Leeds taking on Man Utd

Michael Owen has backed Liverpool to keep up their winning run but reckons Manchester United could have their hands full with Leeds United.

The Reds saw off Tottenham in midweek thanks to a late Roberto Firmino header.

It sent them top ahead of a tricky trip to Crystal Palace with Selhurst Park proving to be a challenging venue for Liverpool for the years.

But Jurgen Klopp's side have shown their champion mentality by battling on despite the absence of key individuals and Owen expects them to pick up another three points.

He told Bet Victor: "Liverpool’s late win at home to Tottenham on Wednesday means that they sit three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

"These are the types of results that win you championships, and when you consider that the Reds are still not at full strength, it’s a massive statement.

"History tells us that this has been a tough fixture for Liverpool. However, Palace have only won 2 at home all season and I think this will go the way of the away side."

United meanwhile will host Leeds in the top flight for the first time in 16 years.

The Red Devils saw off Yorkshire opposition on Thursday night, but the Whites are a different prospect and will be reeling after their 5-2 success against Newcastle.

He said: "What a great sight it is to see this match back on the fixture list. Leeds travel to Old Trafford in the Premier League for the first time since February 2004.

"That day the sides drew 1-1 and I think this will be another tight match.

"Leeds are at their best when teams come at them. They are excellent at smothering sides and can really run the legs off you if given the chance.

"I can’t help thinking back to Leeds match against Liverpool at the start of the season. If they approach this in a similar way, I think we could be in for an entertaining match with the sides ultimately sharing the points."

A troubled Arsenal side managed to earn a share of the spoils as they drew with Southampton last time out.

They head to an Everton side who look to have got their mojo back.

And Owen is predicting another stalemate on Merseyside.

He added: "With back-to-back wins, Everton have certainly turned the corner after a poor run of results. Wednesday’s away win against Leicester lifted the Toffees to 5 place, and up against an Arsenal side who look completely out of sorts, they’ll fancy their chances.

"It’s now 6 matches since Arsenal won a Premier League match.

"Fifteenth in the table is simply not good enough and unless Mikel Arteta starts winning football matches, his tenure at the Emirates could be short lived."

Tottenham and Chelsea meanwhile both lost in midweek but have been backed to return to winning ways

The Blues have lost consecutive games with Frank Lampard calling out his own team.

It’s been a tough week for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea," Owen continued.

"They went into last weekend as genuine title contenders, but after back-to-back defeats, the Stamford Bridge faithful will have been left scratching their heads.

" West Ham arrive here unbeaten in two. The Hammers have been difficult to play against this season, so Chelsea will have to be at their best if they are to win this."

Before he said Tottenham: "Jose Mourinho almost executed his plan perfectly at Anfield on Wednesday.

"A late Liverpool goal means Spurs now sit 2 in the Premier League, although I think most of their support will still be satisfied by that.

"Spurs have looked extremely professional this season. I think they’ll be patient here and wait for Leicester to come out.

"If that happens, Son & Kane are a force to be reckoned with. So, I’m siding with Tottenham to win and keep a clean sheet in the process."

Owen has also backed Man City to win Southampton as well as successes for Brighton, Newcastle and Aston Villa.
