Michael Owen is tipping Arsenal to coast to a comfortable victory over Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners head into the game looking to build on their impressive form before the international break.

Arsenal have won their last five Premier League games on the spin and currently sit third in the Premier League table, just two points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new season.

The north Londoners were 1-0 winners over Burnley before the international break and will be keen to keep up their solid run of form against the Swans.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Owen does not expect Arsenal to have any trouble claiming the three points on Saturday and is backing them to win to nil.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Bob Bradley becomes the first American to take charge of a Premier League side when his Swansea side travel to The Emirates.

“The Swans, surprisingly, have picked up 10 points from their last four visits to The Emirates but they face a Gunners side who have kept four clean sheets in a row in all competitions. It could be an easier start for Bradley.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s prediction, Arsenal to win to nil.”

Arsenal finished second in the Premier League and without a trophy last season.
