Michael Owen: Danny Welbeck could be the difference between Arsenal and Hull City in Premier League

Danny Welbeck

Michael Owen predicts the result of today’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Hull City at the Emirates Stadium.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes that Danny Welbeck will prove to be the difference between Arsenal and Hull City today.

Welbeck is likely to start the Premier League encounter between the Gunners and the Tigers at the Emirates Stadium in London.

The England international joined Arsenal from Manchester United on transfer deadline day for a reported fee of £16 million.

Although the 23-year-old has yet to be overly convincing for the North London outfit, he has scored for them in the Premier League already, while creating five chances and having a 84% pass accuracy.

Welbeck has scored a hat-trick for Arsene Wenger’s side in the Champions League, and Owen appears to believe that his goal today could prove to be enough to bag the Gunners all three points.

‘The Gunners have only won one of their last six PL games but have won their last five in the PL against the Tigers although Hull took them to extra-time in the FA Cup Final earlier in the year’, Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

‘I make no apologies for banging on about how highly I rate Danny Welbeck having trained and played with him at Old Trafford and he might be the difference between the sides’.

Arsenal will head into today’s match as the favourites, largely because they are playing at home and have a better team on paper.

However, Hull will be no easy pushovers. Steve Bruce’s side are currently 11th in the league table and will be determined to pick up at least a point in North London today.
