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

City will take on Premier League rivals Arsenal at the Wembley Stadium in London in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

“The Gunners bounced back with a win at the Riverside on Monday night but hardly arrive in sparkling form and I can’t see beyond a City win on Sunday,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Manchester City have progressed from each of their last eight FA Cup semi-finals, and 1/2 with BetVictor to do so again but the Citizens may be forced to work for their win, and I think the 21/10 for City to win and both teams to score is too big.”

City have a better team than Arsenal and will head into the FA Cup semi-final tie on Sunday afternoon as favourites.

Pep Guardiola’s side are also in better form and will be full of confidence ahead of the tie against the North London outfit.

The Citizens will head into the match on the back of a 3-0 victory over Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League.

City and Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw with each other at the Emirates Stadium in the league earlier this month.

The Gunners, though, cannot be underestimated. Arsene Wenger’s side got the better of Middlesbrough 2-1 away from home at the Riverside Stadium in the Premier League on Monday evening to bounce back from the 3-0 defeat to London rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
