Owen: LFC's toughest run is over, pressure all on City now

We've just come off the end of a run of games that included potentially tricky games against the likes of Leicester, West Ham and Bournemouth, as well as tough away games against rivals Manchester United and Everton.

Yes, we dropped point in 4 of those games but Michael Owen reckons that our toughest run is now over and Manchester City will now face an equally tricky run, whilst Liverpool face a relatively straightforward (on paper, at least) run in, with Chelsea and Spurs thrown in.

Speaking to Goal, Owen said: "It looks like it’s a two-horse race,” the former Liverpool striker told Goal.

"There’s only Manchester City and Liverpool that are potentially going to win the Premier League.

"I’ll feel sorry for whoever doesn’t because in any other year the second team would’ve won the Premier League by maybe 10 points.

"This year has been an exceptional standard and it’s going to go a long way yet.

"Liverpool now have played in recent weeks Everton away, Manchester United away and okay, their points have dropped a little bit, but now it changes. Now Manchester City have a more difficult finish."

With just a quarter of the full season's fixtures remaining, and a total points of available to each team of 27, it'll be a close run thing.

Liverpool will have the visits of Chelsea and Spurs to contend with, along with a trip to Newcastle at the penultimate hurdle, with Wolves at Anfield at match-week 38.

Meanwhile, Man City will have potentially tricky matches away to Watford, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Man Utd. Whilst they'll also take on Spurs at the Etihad in between .
