Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen backs Swansea City to pick up a point against Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes that Arsenal will fail to win against Swansea City on Sunday.

The Gunners will travel to Wales to take on the Swans at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League.

Swansea are having a fantastic season so far and are in contention for a top-six finish, and Owen backs them to pick up a point against Arsenal.

‘This is Swansea’s best start to a PL season and I expect them to avoid defeat against the Gunners’ who must still be wondering how they let a three-goal lead slip against Anderlecht midweek’, the 34-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com.

‘Arsenal’s four PL win’s so far this season have all been against sides currently in the bottom six and I think they will have to settle for a draw at the Liberty’.

Winning at Swansea will not be easy for Arsenal, whose defensive frailties were once again exposed in midweek.

Arsenal were 3-0 up against Belgian outfit Anderlecht at the Emirates Stadium in the Champions League, but conceded thrice in the final 30 minutes of the encounter to settle for a 3-3 draw.

However, that was a ‘freak’ result and one that is not uncommon in football. One would expect manager Arsene Wenger to revive his players’ confidence and made them ready for the test in Swansea.
