Michael Owen explains why West Ham United v Swansea City could end in a draw

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen predicts the outcome of Sunday’s Premier League encounter between West Ham United and Swansea City.

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…
