Former Real Madrid striker, Michael Owen, has named Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United as the favourites clubs to win the Champions League ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.
Owen feels all the four Premier League clubs are far ahead of other clubs to win the Europe top-flight competition this season, including the PSG, despite the French Ligue 1 giants having Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
The former England international said this while giving his verdicts on Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe combination as PSG drew 1-1 with Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Messi started PSG’s opening Champions League group game against Club Brugge on Wednesday night in a front three with Neymar, Mbappe, but none of the club’s all-star forwards were able to find the net in a disappointing 1-1 draw against the Belgium side.
“As much as we drool over them [Messi, Neymar and Mbappe], this PSG team with those forwards, they are all phenomenal players in their own right,” Owen told BT Sport.
“But three together makes it weaker for me and I don’t really understand why they are one of the favourites for it [the Champions League].
“I think the English teams (Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Man United) are far, far superior.”
