So, who does Michael Owen support?! Liverpool or Man Utd?!
If his tweet during the West Brom game on Saturday afternoon was to be believed, then the answer is clear — the mighty Reds.
Come on Red Men. A win by two goals and it’s ‘top of the league’. pic.twitter.com/hDAn2rwPkO

United and England striker Wayne Rooney isn’t so sure, however, as he called our former player’s bluff:
Interesting this Michael I thought you was a united fan??? https://t.co/NjOZ0N1fCr

So — which one is it Michael?!
The game itself saw us emerge as 2-1 winners. A lovely team goal finished off by Sadio Mane gave us the lead on the 20-minute mark before Phil Coutinho doubled our advantage 15 minutes later.
It was a nervy final ten minutes as Gareth McAuley pulled one back for the visitors – though Firmino and Wijnaldum both went close to making it 3-1 in the dying moments.
The win puts us joint-top with Arsenal.
