Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted Sunday’s Premier League clash between West Ham United and Swansea City to end in a draw.
“West Ham have been revitalised with their excellent summer purchases coming good and both sides are difficult to oppose having started the season so well,” the 34-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com.
“Swansea have yet to fully translate their excellent record at the Liberty away from home and they have been fortunate to field a relatively unchanged line-up throughout the start of the season thus far with seven ever-presents giving them a solid foundation.
“Swansea are winless in their last 11 games at Upton Park but are well-organised and can take a share of the spoils back to South Wales.”
Sunday’s match at the Boleyn Ground is indeed tough to call, and there is a distinct possibility that it will end in a draw.
West Ham are currently fifth in the Premier League table with 24 points from 14 matches, just a point behind fourth-placed Manchester United, while the Swans are two points behind in seventh.
Perhaps a single goal will decide the outcome of the contest…
