Owen: Arsenal won’t make top four

Former Real Madrid and Liverpool striker Michael Owen is of the opinion that he sees Arsenal dropping off the top four in the 2014/15 season for Manchester United to climb up.

His predicted top-four finish for next season are Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool.

Owen, 34, who won the Premier League with United in 2010/11 season, admits to have been impressed with Arsenal’s impressive form in the transfer market this summer especially with the signing of Chile striker Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona.

But the ex-England forward feels Sanchez isn’t enough, stressing that the Gunners still “lack quality”.

“I have been really impressed with Arsenal’s signing of Sanchez,” Owen told talkSPORT.

“They have been missing a bit of quality but [they’ll miss out].

“The signing of Sanchez has made everyone sit up and take note. I really do rate him, he’s a top player and it’s a big step in the right direction.

“But, in no particular order, my top four for next season would be Chelsea, Man City, Man United and Liverpool.

“Arsenal haven’t had any real stand out players in the last few years, like Thierry Henry. They have just lagged a step behind.”

    I think mr owen has watched next seasons games in his dream. I think he should keep his mouth shut and allow the season to start before he start talking.

    Mr. Owen, thanks for pushing us hard to work extra hard. i) You are not world class player because your England never won anything world nor European class during your time. Arsenal has Ozil that just won the World Cup, has Sanchez that has just won the South American Cup, Whatever you think you can say about Arsenal, you have the right to say so.

    Well typical OWEN… he has never liked ARSENAL. It shows in all his comments about ARSENAL for years now. And we dont like him as much as he does not like arsenal…. You see how he quickly believed that his 2 former clubs will be make top 4….i dey laugh. he will certainly be disappointed.
