Michael Owen gives his prediction for the north London derby

Michael Owen has predicted that Arsenal will continue their fine run of form and earn a win over Tottenham in the north London derby this weekend.

The Gunners have won their last two league matches to recover well from three defeats from their opening three league games.

That start to the campaign was completely opposite to that of Tottenham who won their opening three league matches to go top of the league table.

The fortunes of both clubs have since reversed with Spurs now on a two-game losing streak ahead of this match.

Arsenal could topple their rivals on the league table if they can score around four unanswered goals, but it will be easier said than done.

Mikel Arteta’s side won their Carabao Cup game against AFC Wimbledon in midweek to enter this fixture on a three-game winning streak in all competitions.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker, Owen believes the Gunners will earn a fourth consecutive win on Sunday.

“Arsenal have won two in a row; Spurs have lost two in a row,” said Owen as quoted by Mirror Football.

“For that reason, I’m going to side with the Gunners here and predict a 2-1 home win.”

  1. It worries me when everyone reckons Arsenal will win. That’s usually when it goes wrong in games, like this! Having said that, I reckon Arsenal will win too. Or hopefully not worse than a draw.

  2. Kiss of death………….Michael Owen is the sporting equivalent of Nostradamus. At the best of times he’s damning towards Arsenal and and the worst, he’s disingenuously conciliatory.

    He talks Bollo most of the time and he’s doing it again! He’s actually hoping to be wrong and we get turned over. Boooooo to Michael Owen

  3. The game will surely be a draw, but I hope arsenal get a win. I’m still not convinced with the arsenal game, but hope to be more consistent going forward and being clinical in their finishing.

  4. I prefer it when Mr Owen predicts a loss for Arsenal, which is quite often. For then it gives me the uncanny joy that we invariably disappoint him with a win!
    Last weekend he said we’d lose 1 -0 at Burnley; we won.
    So can someone just tell the Arsenal hater to change his prediction please

  5. For a change, Owen has sided with Arsenal. We should keep Kane and Sun quiet and be clinical in the final third.
