Loyle Carner's Premier League predictions

Loyle Carner is a Liverpool fan, who says he started following the Reds after watching Michael Owen burst on to the scene at the 1998 World Cup.

"I basically became a Liverpool fan through a love of Michael Owen," he told BBC Sport. "When I was really young I was watching England play Argentina with my dad and I saw him score.

"I was like 'who is that?' and my dad told me that he played for Liverpool. From then on it just stuck. I started off just being hooked on Owen but then I realised I could not just support a human, I had to support a whole team."
