Villa will take on Arsenal at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and Owen believes that the Gunners will pick up all three points from the encounter.
“The less said about Aston Villa’s season the better, and I can see many punters banking on AOA here when Arsenal visit,” the former England international striker has written on Colossusbets.com.
“But while I obviously think Arsenal will win, they are still not totally convincing – notwithstanding their superb 3-0 away win to progress in the Champions League on Wednesday night – especially with their injuries. I take the Gunners to win 3-1 or 2-1.”
Arsenal will head into Sunday’s game as favourites and full of confidence.
The Gunners are in the running for the Premier League title this season, and they will see this game as three easy points.
Although relegation-threatened Villa will try to make it tough for Arsene Wenger’s side, the fact is that Remi Garde’s side are struggling and simply do not have the quality of players to match the opposition.
An early goal for the Villans could make things tricky for Arsenal, but the North London outfit should still be able to register a victory.
