Michael Owen has backed Manchester City to get all three points against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Owen told BetVictor: “All credit to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for making changes to his team and getting a vital win against Spurs last week. The pressure is still on him, but that will have helped to ease it. I was glad to see Cavani get the nod up top, his movement remains world-class and I think he can still make a huge difference.

“I’m sure Pep will chalk up the loss against Palace as one of those days. City have been looking fantastic in recent weeks, so it was a real surprise. They’ll look to bounce back in style here though.

“I can’t see City losing two league games in a row. The pressure remains firmly on, and I’d expect City to keep the ball and play through United, as Liverpool did a couple of weeks ago. I’m predicting a 3-1 City win.”
