According to former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn and former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas, The Queen is a fan of gunnersthough her favorite player questions that.
Sven-Goran Eriksson claimed that Her Majesty once told him at a royal reception that although she was not a big football fan, her favorite player at the time was Michael Owen.
Owen broke the hearts of Arsenal fans in 2001 when he scored twice belatedly to complete a stunning return to Liverpool in the FA Cup final.
Speaking on the podcast “Fired in the Morning”, Erickson explained: “I was invited to dinner with the Queen about 10 more people. At one point I asked her if she loved football. She said not very much.
“I asked her favorite player or team. I thought she would tell Beckham.” Michael Owen is my favorite player, “she said. I asked why, and she said, ‘He looks so clean.’ I received an answer, and we did not continue this discussion. “
Throughout his career, Owen has played for both Liverpool and Real Madrid, as well as for other clubs, and has scored 40 goals in 89 games for England.
He also won the Golden Ball in 2001, the same year he fired Liverpool and beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

This calls into question the alleged support of the Queen of Arsenal, when the former midfielder of the “gunners” Fabregas previously claimed that he told the players of the club that he is a fan.
Speaking after a reception at Buckingham Palace in 2007, the Spaniard said: “It seems the Queen is watching football, and she told us she is a fan of Arsenal.
“She seemed to know exactly who I was, and we exchanged a few special words.”
It has also been reported that the Queen has been a fan of West Ham United in the past, since the club’s triumphs in the FA Cup and Cup Winners ’Cup in the 1960s.
