Michael Owen, hero for Liverpool at Cardiff in the FA Cup victory over
Arsenal in the treble-winning season, has been talking about
Liverpool’s chances against Chelsea in the League Cup Final.
Talking to the BBC, Owen compared the build up to this game to those
against Arsenal (FA Cup) and Manchester United (League Cup) that saw
Owen receive winners’ medals. "It looks like Chelsea are favourites,
but so were Manchester United and so were Arsenal, so obviously they
still have a very good chance."
Owen, now a Real Madrid player, also received a winners; medal in 2001
as an unused sub against Birmingham. "It’s a fantastic occasion. I’ve
been to Cardiff a few times and won a couple of League Cup medals. It’s
certainly a big game in the calendar. There’s no better day out than
going to a cup final. I’m sure all the lads are looking forward to it.
But from Liverpool’s point of view, I don’t think they could have
picked much harder opposition than Chelsea!"
