Michael Owen states his prediction for Arsenal v Burnley

Michael Owen is expecting a low-scoring affair between Arsenal and Burnley in the FA Cup on Saturday

Michael Owen is predicting that Arsenal’s FA Cup clash with Burnley on Saturday will be a low-scoring affair – because he believes that the two sides’ priorities lie elsewhere.

Arsenal head into the fourth-round clash at Emirates Stadium looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend.

The Gunners were flying high at the top of the Premier League table before that game but are now in third place and three points behind leaders Leicester City.

Arsene Wenger’s side have won the FA Cup for the last two seasons running – and Owen believes that their focus will be on improving their form in the Premier League and not Saturday’s clash with Burnley in north London.

Writing in his column for Bet Victor, former striker Owen said: “Holders Arsenal haven’t won in their last three whilst Burnley have won four on the spin.

“One could argue that both sides have other priorities; the Gunners chasing the Premier League title and the Clarets promotion back to the top-tier of English football.

“I don’t expect to see many goals with both clubs having big league games in midweek.”
