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

Arsenal will take on Sutton away from home in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Monday evening.

Owen has backed the Premier League giants to win the tie against the National League outfit at the Borough Sports Ground.

“Once again, and as expected, Arsenal came up well short against the very best in Munich earlier in the week,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

“They are likely, however, to have far too much for National League Sutton United who warmed up for the tie by losing at relegation-threatened Guiseley midweek.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Arsenal -2 on the handicap at 23/20.”

Arsenal will head into the tie against Sutton as favourites and should be able to win quite handsomely.

The Gunners, though, should not get complacent and should show Paul Doswell’s side respect.

The North London outfit will head into the match on the back of a 5-1 hammering at the hands of German giants Bayern Munich away from home at the Allianz Arena.

The performance against Bayern in Munich was one of the Gunners’ worst under manager Arsene Wenger, and fans will expect a massive improvement.

Sutton will head into the match against Arsenal on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Guiseley away from home in the National League.

The Yellows got the better of Leeds United at home in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
