Michael Owen: Arsenal will struggle to do this against Everton

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes that Arsenal may not be able to score against Everton in the Premier League today.

Scoring goals is what wins football matches, and that is exactly what Arsenal will struggle to do against Everton today, according to former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen.

Predicting the outcome of today’s Premier League clash between the two sides at Goodison Park, the 34-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com: ‘There have been some great games between these clubs of late but with Olivier Giroud not at his best I wonder where the goals will come from for Arsenal with Aaron Ramsay, seemingly, the only threat at the moment.

‘It’s a really tough game to call; Arsenal had a great record against the Blues but have now gone four PL games without success over the Toffees’.

Today’s evening fixture in the English top flight is indeed tough to call, but it is not all doom and gloom in the Gunners’ scoring department as Owen seemingly makes it out to be.

Although France international striker Olivier Giroud is not in great form at the moment, there is every chance that he will be able to pop up at a vital time and score a crucial goal for Arsenal.

There is also star summer signing Alexis Sanchez, who has proved in his career that he can score goals. Last season the Chile international forward scored 19 times in 27 La Liga starts for Barcelona.

And then there are set-piece situations that Arsenal can take advantage of...

Arsenal may not win or even draw against Everton today, but they do have goals in them.
