On his BetVictor blog https://blog.betvictor.com/en-gb/sports/football/premier-league-matchday-32-new-champions-head-to-the-etihad/ Owen has made his predictions for matchday 32 of the Premier League.

And he backs Nick Pope for a league-leading 13th clean sheet of the season.

Owen's prediction is Under 1.5 goals at 17/10, saying: "Crystal Palace were thrashed 4-0 away at Liverpool in their last game, but I don’t think that will have dented their confidence.

"Liverpool are imperious when at their best, and I think Roy Hodgson will have told his players to forget about their night at Anfield and concentrate on pushing on and trying to finish the season in a European qualification spot.

"Burnley seem to have a number of problems both on and off the pitch at the moment, but Sean Dyche won’t be offering any excuses and will be very keen to finish as high up the table as possible.

"They will be boosted by a much-needed 1-0 home win against Watford on Thursday, and winning games always seem to blow away any clouds of negativity building around a club.

"This is an intriguing game to predict but I think it’s likely to be a low-scoring affair and in fact, I’m going for a 0-0 draw between these two well-organised teams."
