Michael Owen states his prediction for Arsenal v Sunderland
Michael Owen is tipping Arsenal to secure a comfortable win over Sunderland in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday
Michael Owen is tipping Arsenal to ease to a comfortable victory over Sunderland and book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup this weekend.
The north London side are preparing to kick off their title defence in front of their home fans at Emirates Stadium on Saturday after having won the competition for the last two season.
Arsenal have enjoyed a positive start to the season and currently sit top of the Premier League table, two points ahead of second-placed Leicester City.
The Gunners began 2016 with a battling 1-0 win over Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium last weekend.
Former England and Arsenal forward Owen feels that Arsenal are set to ease to victory to reach the fourth round.
Owen wrote on his blog for Bet Victor: “Arsenal are looking for a record 13th win in the competition, a third successive Wembley triumph and cannot be opposed against a Sunderland side who travel to the Liberty Stadium Swansea on Wednesday in a vital bottom-of-the-table clash, which manager Sam Allardyce is likely to prioritise.”
Arsenal, who finished third last season, are aiming to win the Premier League for the first time since the 2003-04 season, when they went unbeaten.
