The fifth round of the Premier League kicks off over the weekend. There are two highlights in this round, the Merseyside Derby and Manchester City's home game against Arsenal. Before the game, former Liverpool star Irving predicted that his old club would beat Toffee. He was also optimistic that Blue Moon would beat the Gunners 3-1 and the Red Devils would draw 1-1 with Newcastle away.
Everton's home game against Liverpool, Irving said: "This is the most anticipated Merseyside Derby in years. Who can predict that Everton has won 100% of the two teams since the beginning of the season? How about entering the game? They have made a good start, and Liverpool have two weeks to lick their wounds after their 2-7 defeat to Aston Villa. Will we see the Reds rebound? I think so, it might It was a classic game, and the two sides were evenly matched, but I am optimistic that Liverpool won by a narrow margin with the score 2-1.
In Manchester City's game against Arsenal, Owen analyzed: "For the Gunners, this is a good start. They will come to the Etihad Stadium with high expectations, but Manchester City will cheer up and return to home. Later, I believe that Pep (Guardiola) will lead the team to victory with a score of 3-1."
In Manchester United’s away game against Newcastle, Owen said: “Newcastle will be very happy for their start of the season. The Magpies had a 3-1 home win over Burnley in the last round. The stabbing game will not be forgotten anytime soon. I think it will take a few weeks for the Red Devils to regain a foothold and fight Newcastle. I expect the two sides to end in a draw with a score of 1-1."
In addition, Owen predicted that Tottenham would draw 1-1 with West Ham and Chelsea would beat Southampton 3-1.
