Former Premier League striker Michael Owen has posted his predictions for the new Premier League season ahead of next weekend’s opening fixtures.

The pundit has released his full table for the new season on his Twitter, with some controversial decisions included.

The 43-year-old has predicted Manchester City to win the Premier League for a fourth successive season, with new boys Luton Town finishing rock bottom.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United complete the top four, with Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers joining Luton in the bottom three.

Owen has predicted Nottingham Forest to finish in 13th, an improvement of three places from last season.

With Forest in 13th on Owen’s prediction, he has placed them above the bottom three plus Bournemouth, Burnley Crystal Palace and Fulham.

The Premier League campaign gets underway a week today, with Vincent Kompany’s Burnley hosting Manchester City at Turf Moor.

Steve Cooper’s side kick their season off with a tricky trip to the Emirates to take on last season’s runners-up Arsenal, who have severely bolstered their playing squad as they aim to go one better this campaign.

The game takes place at 12:30 pm on Saturday 12th August, live on TNT Sports.
