Michael Owen 'unimpressed' with Arsenal or Spurs, but one star phenomenal

Rosicky Defends

Owen found Tottenham and Arsenal equally drab he stated.

When it comes to entertainment and quality, Arsenal and Tottenham are pretty even argues Michael Owen.

The former Liverpool and Manchester United striker used Twitter to state he was far from excited by either side during the game at White Hart Lane - but offered the European exertions of both sides as excuses.

The Europa League problem has been a regular bugbear for Tottenham in recent seasons, frequently suffering losses or lethargic performances. after Thursday night games. A 1-0 loss to Norwich this campaign and 1-0 loss at home to Fulham last season costly examples.

Owen has been an outspoken critic of Arsenal this season, predicting they would finish fifth and stating they were punching above their weight, something he now surely has to accept he was incorrect on - this coming days after drawing 1-1 in Munich.

The BT Sport pundit was impressed with one Arsenal star, in particular the goal scored by matchwinner Tomas Rosicky.

Owen has been frequently critical of Mesut Ozil this season, arguing he is not world class on more than one occasion.

But while he may not hold Arsenal in high regard, perhaps he doesn't rate Spurs much either - re-emphasising post-game that he tipped his former side Liverpool to win in his betting column - along with the Gunners.
