Michael Owen predicts Arsenal v Leicester

Arsenal will face Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

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

Arsenal will take on Leicester at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Owen has backed the Gunners to pick up all three points from the encounter in North London, although he has not completely written off the chances of the Foxes.

“The big game of the weekend is Arsenal v Leicester, and it had me scratching my head,” the former Newcastle United striker wrote on Colossusbets.com.

“I was at the Etihad for BT Sport on Saturday and you have to be massively impressed by Leicester, and their away record of eight wins, four draws, and one defeat are the results of champions.

“Opposing a team with only two losses in 25 games isn’t easy, but Arsenal were responsible for one of those defeats – and that was a 5-2 win, too – and I take the home side to edge it 2-1. In truth, none of the three outcomes would surprise me having seen Leicester at the weekend, though.”

Arsenal are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 48 points from 25 matches, five points behind leaders Leicester City.

The Gunners need to win on Sunday afternoon in order to maintain their chances of winning the league title this season.

Playing at home will give Arsene Wenger’s side an advantage, but as Leicester have shown this season, they are not scared to take on the big teams on the road.

Claudio Ranieri’s side got the better of Manchester City 3-1 away from home at the Etihad Stadium last weekend. Leicester will head into the match against Arsenal full of confidence and could well pick up a point.
