Chelsea are currently in four competitions this season, as the Blues are top of the Premier League table and are in the last eight of the Carabao Cup. Chelsea also have the Champions League and FA Cup to contend for.

Chelsea are the defending champions of the Champions League, and it will surely be a huge ask for Thomas Tuchel’s men to win it again.

Former Liverpool and England striker believes that the English sides have the better quality to win the Champions League this season, and he tipped Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea as his favourites. He’s however backing Liverpool to win the Champions League.

Asked if Liverpool are the favourites to win this season’s Champions League, Owen told BT Sport: “I think English football and the Premier League is so far ahead of everyone else at the moment and getting even stronger.

“We have been ahead for a few years anyway and then we have taken the two best players in the Italian league in Ronaldo and Lukaku.

“Lionel Messi’s gone to a weaker league, so the Spanish league has got weaker. I can never really take the French league as seriously as maybe I should.

“We are taking the best managers as well. I think the biggest dangers to Liverpool are probably Man City and Chelsea.

“You look at the Anfield factor, I just can’t get that out of my head. Good luck going there in the second leg of a European tie. They’re almost unbeatable at Anfield.

“You’d have to say that Liverpool are favourites.”
