Former Manchester United player, Michael Owen, has predicted Arsenal to seal a narrow win over Burnley in today’s Premier League fixture at the Emirates Stadium.
Owen also backed Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur to beat Crystal Palace and Liverpool to defeat Fulham.
Providing his predictions, Owen told BetVictor: “Arsenal have been disappointing this season, so far.
“Mikel Arteta has his work cut out – however. He will see this as the ideal opportunity to get back on track.
“I go through a lot of stats in this line of work, and unfortunately for Burnley, they come last in most of them.
“I expect the Gunners to get back on track here, albeit by a slender margin.”
On the Fulham vs Liverpool game, Owen said, “Liverpool were very impressive last week at home to Wolves. Despite having a depleted squad, they are still getting results.
“Although Fulham have looked good in patches, I fear they’ll fall short this season. Their dangerman, Mitrovic, needs a goal. He might fancy his chances here, but I cannot see past Liverpool notching up another win.”
Speaking on Crystal Palace vs Tottenham game, Owen said, “This will be an interesting game. Crystal Palace are comfortable playing on the counter-attack and with Wilfred Zaha fit once again, they can be very dangerous.
“The same can be said for Tottenham. They don’t mind being patient and get a lot of joy on the counter-attack. They will have to be a more positive here, and I think they’ll be. Pound for pound they’ve the better team by quite a distance, so I fancy Mourinho’s men to take the points.”
The kick-off time for Arsenal vs Burnley is 8:15 pm, while that of Fulham vs Liverpool is 5:30 pm and Crystal Palace vs Tottenham is 5:15 pm.
