Michael Owen is a typical centre forward who loves scoring and admires great goalscorers himself. However, his comments about assists were not taken well by former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who immediately hit back at his claims.

Michael Owen Twitter rant continues

If anyone thought that was the end of Michael Owen Twitter rant they are here for a surprise. Owen, who was analysing the Man United vs Leicester game, was unimpressed with Amad Diallo's five-yard pass to Mason Greenwood, who came up with a brilliant finish to equalise the scores. The Liverpool legend wrote:

As one can see in all of Michael Owen comments, the Liverpool legend completely disregards the ability assist providers and playmakers possess. Owen fails to acknowledge the fact that goalscorers too can score the simplest of goals that have been created as a result of a beautiful pass. For example, most of the forwards score goals that are tap ins or simple headers that are created by brilliant assists.
