Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has his say on today’s Premier League game between Arsenal and Burnley at the Emirates Stadium.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes that Arsenal will not concede the first goal in the Premier League clash against Burnley today.

The Gunners will take on the promoted side at the Emirates Stadium later this afternoon.

Arsene Wenger’s side have been behind in each of their last four Premier League games so far this season, but Owen expects them to change that trend today.

‘It looks as if it is going to be a very long season for the Clarets who, after a good start defensively, are now leaking goals having conceded 12 in their last four PL games’, the 34-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com.

‘Arsenal have been behind in each of their four PL home games so far this season but I expect them to buck that recent trend at the weekend’.

Arsenal will head into today’s game as overwhelming favourites and will be expected to get the better of Burnley.

The North London club have a far superior team and playing at home will also give them an advantage.

Wenger’s team are currently fifth in the Premier League table with 14 points from nine matches, while Burnley are at the foot of the standings with just four points.
