Michael Owen predicts Arsenal v Aston Villa outcome

Arsenal and Aston Villa will face each other in the Premier League this weekend.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Arsenal will win against Aston Villa this weekend.

Arsenal will take on Villa at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The North London outfit will head into the game as favourites, and a win for the Gunners could see them finish second.

As for Villa, they have already been relegated to the Championship and have nothing to play for.

Owen has backed Arsene Wenger’s side to pick up all three points from the Premier League encounter.

“Hard to see past a home win at the Emirates and I don’t think Villa will give Petr Cech too much to worry about,” the former Newcastle United striker wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Arsenal to win to nil at 39/40.”

If Arsenal win against Villa at the Emirates Stadium and Tottenham Hotspur lose against Newcastle United away from home at the Emirates Stadium, then the Gunners will end up second in the Premier League table.

It is hard to see Villa get anything from the match, even if they score in the first 10 minutes. The Arsenal players will be determined to end the season on a winning note and send the fans home happy.
