Michael Owen praises Arsenal - 'A joy to watch'

Former England international Michael Owen has taken to Twitter to praise Arsenal for their third goal against Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.

It is fair to say Michael Owen has had plenty to say about Arsenal this season, and a lot of those comments would not have pleased Gunners fans.

From tipping Arsene Wenger's men to finish fifth in the Premier League, to saying Mesut Ozil was not a world-class player, the former England international has attracted his fair share of criticism from fans of the club.

Owen again commented on Arsenal earlier today, as he watched them play Sunderland.  But this time he was full of praise for the North London side, after seeing Tomas Rosicky put the finishing touch to an excellent and well-constructed team goal.

Hailing the strike as "typical Arsenal", the former Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle striker also said it was down to teamwork and was a joy to watch.

So it seems Owen will hail the Gunners, when their play deserves it...
