West Ham will kick off their 2016-17 Premier League campaign with an away game against Chelsea on Monday evening.
Owen has predicted Kouyate to score for West Ham against Chelsea on Monday evening.
“I was impressed by Cheik Kouyate last term and the Hammers’ midfielder might be a shade overpriced to find the back of the net on Monday evening.”
A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Kouyate to score at anytime at 19/2.”
Kouyate, who is 26 years of age, is a versatile footballer who can play as a midfielder or as a defender.
The Senegal international joined West Ham from Belgian giants Anderlecht in the summer of 2014.
According to The Independent, the Hammers paid £7 million as transfer fee in order to secure the services of the midfielder.
Kouyate scored five goals and created 21 chances in 34 Premier League appearances for West Ham during the 2015-16 campaign.
The Hammers will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Premier League this season.
