Michael Owen is confident Arsenal will make light work of their clash against Swansea City at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners were thrilling 5-2 winners against Everton at Goodison Park last weekend to end their winless run on the road in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal haven’t had any issues at The Emirates this season after sweeping aside Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion, Bournemouth and Brighton in north London.

The Gunners will be hoping to keep pace with top-four rivals Chelsea with another straightforward home win against Welsh side Swansea City this weekend.

Arsene Wenger will take charge of his 800th game at Arsenal when the Welsh side make the trip to the English capital in search of their second away win of the campaign.

Former Liverpool striker Owen is tipping Arsenal to beat Swansea to nil at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“Arsene Wenger’s side remain something of an enigma but have a wonderful record when welcoming sides in the bottom-half of the table to The Emirates and I can’t see beyond a comfortable three points for the Gunners on Saturday,” Owen told BetVictor.

“This will be Wenger’s 800th Premier League game in charge of Arsenal and, despite the often-unwarranted criticism, he remains one of the best managers in the Premier League and club football.”

Arsenal missed out on a top-four finish last season following a disappointing Premier League season for Wenger’s side.

The Gunners did end the campaign on a positive note with a 2-1 win against Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Arsenal have won the competition in two of the past three seasons.
