Michael Owen predicts result for Arsenal v Liverpool

Michael Owen may be one of the clumsiest pundits in British sport but fans absolutely love to know exactly what he thinks about the Premier League. Disagree with me? Then why are you here?

The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle striker now makes a living working as a commentator for BT Sport but also represents Bet Victor as their in-house football tipster.

With the Premier League season underway, the return of Owen's predictions was soon to follow. He has given us a prediction for every game taking place over the weekend but Sunday's game featuring Arsenal and Liverpool is certainly the one we're most interested in.

Owen believes Jurgen Klopp's men could come away from the Emirates with a hard-earned point but has backed Arsenal to score as well.

He wrote on Bet Victor: "Arsenal are likely to field an understrength back four against Jurgen Klopp’s side and I expect to see goals at the Emirates. Liverpool don’t have the best of records at Arsenal in recent times but they have scored more goals than any other side in the PL this year and are a match for anyone on their day."

Other predictions

If you're thinking of placing a bet on Owen's prediction, you should be aware that he believed Leicester City to start their title defence with a win at Hull City. As we well know, the manager-less Tigers fought to a deserved 2-1 win.

On Leicester, he wrote: "It could be a long winter for managerless Hull and I think the Foxes represent the bet of the weekend at their current odds of 20/21. Note the current champions have never lost the first game of their title defence (won 19 drew 4) in the history of the Premier League."

He also believed Paul Pogba would play a part in Manchester United's game against Bournemouth, obviously not hearing the news that the French midfielder was suspended for the tie.

Title winners

Owen also predicted his outright winner for the Premier League and went along with the bookies by saying the famous trophy will be heading to Manchester. While he thinks City may edge it, he can't deny his former club, United, stand a great chance.

He said: "I think the winners will come from Manchester and marginal preference is for City over United; both sides look to have bought well in the summer and have done their business before the start of the season which is a plus. Expect to see a big season from Kevin de Bruyne who looks overpriced at 14/1 to be named PFA Player of the Season."

Keep up the good work, Michael!
