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

Arsenal will return to action this weekend when they take on Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the Premier League.

The Gunners will head into the match against the Hornets on Saturday evening on the back of a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium in North London in the league.

Former Newcastle United and England international striker Owen does not expect Arsene Wenger’s side to win against Watford.

Owen, though, has predicted Arsenal to score against the Hornets and has also spoken of Watford manager Marco Silva.

Silva was appointed the Watford boss in the summer following the departure of Walter Mazzarri.

The 40-year-old former Olympiacos boss was appointed the Hull City manager in January, but he failed to keep the Tigers in the Premier League for the 2017-18 campaign.

“Arsenal haven’t scored on the road in their three PL games so far this term and, whilst I think they will find the back of the Watford net, I think they might have to settle for a point at Vicarage Road against a progressive Hornets’ side,” Owen wrote on betvictor.com.

“Watford are another side with a better record away from home so far this season, but Marco Silva is a manager I have a lot of time for and I expect the hosts to get at least a point against the Gunners.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Watford Double Chance – draw or win at 13/10

“Michael’s correct score prediction: Watford 2 – 2 Arsenal.”
