Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to win to nil against Huddersfield Town at The Emirates on Wednesday night.

The Gunners will be looking to record a third successive Premier League win against the promoted side following victories over derby rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley.

Arsenal are in fourth place in the Premier League table and a staggering 12 points behind current leaders Manchester City following 13 games in the English top flight.

The north London side were 2-0 winners against Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League at The Emirates earlier this season but will face a Huddersfield outfit that were 2-1 winners against their top-four rivals Manchester United.

The Gunners have a brilliant 100 per cent record at The Emirates this term following six successive wins in front of their home supporters following victories over Leicester City, Bournemouth, Brighton, West Brom, Swansea and Tottenham.

Former Liverpool striker Owen is backing Arsenal to secure an emphatic win against Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium.

“Arsenal scored a last minute winner against Burnley on Sunday – their third successive 1-0 win against the Clarets with all three goals scored in stoppage time,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Huddersfield defended admirably for much of the game against City at the John Smith’s Stadium later in the afternoon, but eventually had nothing to show for their efforts and I can’t see them causing a shock at the Emirates.”

Arsenal signed Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and Schalke 04 defender Sead Kolasinac in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons but haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04.
