Michael Owen predicts Manchester United v Arsenal

Old Trafford Olympics

Owen believes Arsenal will only manage a draw against United.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes his old side will get a point against Arsenal this weekend.

The Red Devils have had a disappointing season so far, and need a win to re-vitalise their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

Arsenal meanwhile have aspirations to win the title, but suffered a disappointing result earlier in the week as they lost to at home to Barcelona.

Owen feels they are as good as out of the Champions League, but does not see them bouncing back with a win this weekend.

He told BetVictor: "The Gunners are all but out of the Champions League after their 2-0 reverse at home to Barcelona midweek and this is a massive game for the club in their quest for the Premier League title.

"They haven’t won in their last eight PL visits to Old Trafford and might have to settle for a point against a United side who have gained fewer points (41) after 26 games than the club have gained in any other Premier League season." 

Currently 10 points separate the two teams and Arsenal beat United twice last year, winning in the FA Cup thanks to Owen's former teammate Danny Welbeck scoring a winner, and easing to a 3-0 victory at The Emirates last year.

Despite their advantage over United, Arsenal's recent form has been mixed, winning only two of their last six Premier League matches, while United have won just three of their last 10.
