Michael Owen predicts Arsenal v Swansea

Arsenal will face Swansea City in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Arsenal will win against Swansea City at home.

Arsenal will take on Swansea at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The Gunners will head into the game in North London on the back of a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford.

Arsene Wenger’s side will be under pressure to win against the Swans, but Owen has backed them to pick up all three points from the encounter.

“Arsenal disappointed me against United on Sunday and the Swans did the double over the Gunners last season; that said it is hard to see past a home win despite the fact that the hosts have now failed to score in four of their last six home games in all competitions,” the former England international wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Arsenal to win to nil at 11/10.”

Arsenal have a much better team than Swansea, who are in danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season.

The Gunners will head into the match as favourites, and playing at home is also going to be an advantage.

Swansea will be determined to at least pick up a point from the encounter, and Arsenal need to be careful about conceding an early goal.
