Michael Owen predicts West Brom v Arsenal

West Bromwich Albion will face Arsenal at The Hawthorns in the Premier League on Saturday.

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Arsenal will win against West Bromwich Albion away from home this weekend.

West Brom will take on the Gunners at The Hawthorns in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

“Arsenal have been the surprise package thus far with the Gunners’ consistency seeing them cut to second favourites for the title and it’s easy to see why,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Arsene Wenger’s side have found a way to grind out results and battled well to gain a massive point against Spurs in the North London derby at the Emirates.

“The Baggies boast the least prolific attack in the division and considering Arsenal have scored in each and every one of their 18 PL meetings against West Brom they should prevail at the Hawthorns.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Arsenal to win to nil at 6/4.”

Arsenal will head into Saturday’s game against West Brom on the back of a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium in the North London derby.

The Gunners are second in the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 12 matches, level on points with leaders Manchester City but behind on goal difference.

Meanwhile, West Brom currently find themselves 13th in the standings with 14 points from 12 matches.

The Baggies are as many as six points above the relegation zone, and it looks like that they could finish in mid-table this season.

Arsenal are favourites to win on Saturday, but one should not write off West Brom’s chances just yet.
