Michael Owen admits he is struggling to predict who will win between Stoke City and Arsenal in Saturday night’s Premier League clash.

The Gunners head into the game at the bet365 Stadium looking to keep alive their faint hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

Arsenal maintained their top-four challenge with a 2-0 win over Southampton in midweek to back up their victory over Manchester United at The Emirates last weekend.

The north London side are currently fifth in the table but can move to within a point of Liverpool if they beat Stoke this weekend.

Former Liverpool star Owen is expecting to see plenty of goals in the clash but admits that he isn’t sure which team will win.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Stoke have only lost one of their eight home PL games against the Gunners who have failed to score in three of their last four visits to the Potteries.

“A win for the Gunners would keep the pressure up on Liverpool and City in the battle for the last two Champions League spots, and this is a very tough game to call, although I do expect to see goals.”
