Michael Owen comments on Brighton & Hove Albion v Arsenal

Michael Owen looks ahead to Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie between Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal at The Amex.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has written on Betvictor.com that he expects to see ‘plenty of goals’ in Sunday’s game between Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal.

Championship outfit Brighton will host Premier League giants Arsenal at The Amex in what promises to be an entertaining FA Cup fourth-round tie.

“The Seagulls lowered the colours of Ipswich at the Amex midweek and will not lack in confidence but Arsenal, arguably, go into the game on the back of their best away performance in years at the Etihad last weekend and this is another tie where I expect to see plenty of goals,” the 35-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com.

Brighton are currently in the bottom half of the Championship, but they do have the potential to stage an upset against Arsenal.

Chris Hughton’s players will be inundated with confidence following the 3-2 home win against Championship high-flyers Ipswich Town on Wednesday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is likely to make changes to his line-up for today’s game, but the North London outfit will still be considered favourites.

The Gunners should score on Sunday, but so could Brighton. Despite Arsenal’s truly impressive performance against Manchester City last weekend, defensively they still remain vulnerable.

Wenger’s Arsenal are in form at the moment and have regained some momentum, which should be enough for them to get the better of Championship club Brighton.

Of course, an upset is still possible, but it will come as a huge surprise if Arsenal lose at The Amex on Sunday.
