Former Manchester United star ‘Michael Owen’ is supporting the Red Devils to bounce back from consecutive defeats and win 2-0 against Villarreal in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
United will enter the game aiming to rebound after 1-0 losses to West Ham and Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup and Premier League, respectively.
Despite their recent faltering record, ex-Manchester United striker Owen is certain that Solskjaer’s side will respond, and he believes they will get their first Champions League points of the season on Wednesday night.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “This is a must-win for United after some disappointing results.
The defeat by Young Boys on Matchday One was a shock and ultimately one that Solskjaer must feel was preventable. [Cristiano] Ronaldo’s signing galvanised the club but after a couple of bad results, the pressure is back on Ole.
“Villarreal are an organised side but have had a strange start to their La Liga season, drawing five of their first six. Unai Emery is obviously an experienced manager in Europe, but I think United will have too much for them. I’m going for a 2-0 United win.”
