Michael Owen predicted which two teams will sneak into the top four after Liverpool’s spectacular victory over West Brom on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Alisson appeared with a stunning header in the 95th minute to keep the Reds’ hopes of securing a Champions League spot next season intact.

Hal Robson-Kanu had given the Baggies the lead in the first half before Mohamed Salah equalized, and the game looked set to end in a draw before Alisson produced a moment of magic.

In the dying seconds of the game, the stopper came after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner and expertly stepped into the back of the net to make it 2-1.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are now one point behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games to go this season – against Burnley and Crystal Palace.

The Blues face third-place Leicester on Tuesday before facing Aston Villa on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Foxes, who are currently two points ahead of Chelsea, face Tottenham on the last day of the season.

And ex-Liverpool striker Owen believes Leicester will drop out of the top four, with Chelsea and the Reds securing Champions League football with league winner Manchester City and runner-up Manchester United for next season.

“It has been a strange season for Liverpool,” Owen told Premier League Productions.

“In the last few games, they’ve missed so many chances and created so much.

“Today there were a few chances but it was a disappointing performance overall.

“This last minute goal will hide the performance cracks because I thought it was only good.

But at this point in the season, it really doesn’t matter. Then roll over to Burnley and it’s another must-play game.

“You would say Liverpool’s remaining games are the easiest of the three teams, and it’s definitely two out of three now, can’t see people like Tottenham [sixth place] or anyone else sneaking into the party, West Ham [seventh place].

“I think it’s Liverpool, Leicester and Chelsea, two of those three and I think it will be Liverpool and another. “

When pressed for a response from the other team, Owen said, “It’s so difficult. I think Liverpool and Chelsea, I think Chelsea could beat Leicester.
