Michael Owen has warned his former club Liverpool that they face tough competition in their quest to retain the title.
According to Owen, Chelsea are showing a lot of intent with the signings that have been made and he believes the Blues will challenge Liverpool for the title next season.
“I think they’re [Liverpool] a very, very strong team that’s probably going to be strong for some time,” Owen told Premier League Productions.
“[But]That’s not to say they can’t be caught. Manchester City are a phenomenal team and if they turn it on we’re going to have a great title race.
“Manchester United are the first team outside those two that spring to mind because they’re improving at a rapid rate.
“Chelsea are showing a lot of intent with their signings. They’ve been banned from signing players for some while but now they’re making a big splash and they’ve got some youngsters coming in.
“Frank Lampard looks like he has the bit between their teeth. There’s lots of teams that look like they could do it [challenge] but I think they’re the main two [as well as City].”
