Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to coast to victory against Watford at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon and book their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The Gunners head into the weekend’s clash having booked their place in the last eight of the cup competition with a convincing 4-0 win over Hull on Tuesday night.

Arsenal have been struggling to find consistent form in recent weeks but fought back from a goal down to earn a 2-2 draw against Tottenham at White Hart Lane last weekend.

Arsenal are bidding to win the FA Cup for the third straight season – and former Liverpool striker Owen is expecting to see Arsene Wenger’s men secure a convincing win over the Hornets in front of their home fans.

Writing in his column for Bet Victor, Owen said: “The Gunners have won 15 successive rounds of the FA Cup and they ought to make it 16 against a Watford side struggling for goals of late.

“The Hornets have won all three ties 1-0 to reach the last eight but their goal in the 5th Round against Leeds (an own goal) was the last time they found the back of the net!”
