Michael Owen states his prediction for Stoke v Arsenal

Michael Owen is tipping Stoke City to hold Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon

Michael Owen is tipping Stoke City to hold Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Arsenal head back up north after playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night, when they were pegged back by Joe Allen’s late equaliser after coming from behind to lead on Merseyside.

The result left Arsenal top of the table but only on goal difference ahead of Leicester, who were 1-0 winners at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.

Stoke have been in solid form in recent weeks and Owen is fully expecting to see the Potters get at least a point against Arsene Wenger’s title hopefuls.

Owen wrote on his blog for Colossus Bets: “Stoke have surprisingly lost four times at home this season, and lost 2-0 at the Emirates earlier in the season.

“But they beat 10-man Norwich 3-1 on Wednesday night, and have a superb record against the Gunners at the Britannia.

“Indeed, their last five league results in front of their own fans reads as follows: 3-2, 1-0, 0-0, 1-1, and 3-1.

“So the league leaders may have to settle for a point here, and I go 1-1.”
