Michael Owen comments on Arsenal's victory, surprising statement

Michael Owen says he likes it when Arsenal win, despite continually writing them off.

Arsenal secured a memorable victory against Dortmund, and a pundit who has regularly written them off decided to bask in their glory.

Michael Owen described the win positively via his Twitter feed, also claiming somewhat surprisingly that he 'always welcomes' an Arsenal win.

Owen claimed last season even when Arsenal were top of the league in November, that he felt there was no way they could finish in the top four.

Owen said even before this season that he expected Arsenal to finish fifth, and while they are performing slowly in the Premier League, his tip of Liverpool to land up in front of them is not looking so smart.

The former England striker admits he even has four players from the Gunners in his fantasy football team, which again shows he may rate them that little bit more than even he previously liked to admit.

Arsenal now sit two points behind Dortmund, and can finish top of their group by beating Galatasaray, should the Germans also lose to Anderlecht.
