Former England striker, Michael Owen, has predicted that Monday’s Premier League fixture between Manchester United and Arsenal, will end in a draw.
Both clubs have had frustrating starts to the season, but the Gunners are currently in fourth place, with three points more than United.
Owen admits he would be “surprised” if Arsenal fail to find the net at Old Trafford and believes the match will likely finish in a scoring draw.
In his BetVictor column, he wrote:
“After their loss at West Ham on Sunday, Manchester United have now lost seven of their last 15 games in the Premier League – as many as they had in their previous 40 games in the competition.
“Arsenal continue to frustrate and excite in equal measure, but they came from behind twice to beat Aston Villa on Sunday and they were a man light for the whole of the second period.
“United kept a clean sheet against Leicester City in their last home league game, but I would be surprised if the Gunners did not find the back of David de Gea’s net in what promises to be a fascinating game between two clubs desperate to return to the automatic Champions League places this term.
“Unai Emery will have been delighted by the return from long term injury of Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin in the midweek 5-0 League Cup success over Nottingham Forest.
“Add the impressive belated debut of summer signing Kieran Tierney and two goals from Brazilian teenage striker Gabriel Martinelli, and the suggestion is that the Gunners’ boss is going to have one or two difficult, but welcome, selection decisions to make in the weeks and months to come.”
