Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that the game between Arsenal and Liverpool this weekend will end in a draw.

Arsenal and Liverpool will take on each other at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Owen believes that the match between the Gunners and the Reds will end in a draw.

“Arsenal are likely to field an understrength back four against Jurgen Klopp’s side and I expect to see goals at the Emirates,” Owen wrote on Bevictor.com.

“Liverpool don’t have the best of records at Arsenal in recent times but they have scored more goals than any other side in the PL this year and are a match for anyone on their day.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Draw and both teams to score at 7/2.”

Arsenal will head into the match at the Emirates as favourites and with home advantage.

The Gunners will be aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season at least. The North London outfit will also be looking to challenge for the league title.

Liverpool are probably not strong enough to compete with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s side should have enough to challenge for a Champions League spot.

The Reds have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far, signing Joel Matip, Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum among others.

It is hard to see Arsenal lost at the Emirates on Sunday, but Liverpool can pick up a point from the encounter in North London.
