Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to beat Leicester City in Arsene Wenger’s penultimate Premier League game in charge of the Gunners at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

The north London side were resounding 5-0 winners against Burnley in Wenger’s final Premier League game at The Emirates last weekend on an emotional afternoon for the Gunners.

Arsenal are set to finish in sixth spot this season following a disappointing domestic campaign after losing a staggering 10 times in 17 games on the road in the Premier League.

The Gunners will make the trip to take on a Leicester side that have lost their last four of their last five Premier League games following defeats by West Ham, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Arsenal to ease past Leicester in their Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

“Arsene Wenger’s penultimate game as Arsenal manager and the Frenchman has never lost against Leicester City in twenty-two previous meetings,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Arsenal go into the game as the only side in English football yet to pick up a point on the road in 2018 losing all six games, but the Foxes haven’t won any of their last six at the King Power Stadium and they were readily brushed aside by West Ham at the weekend.

“Arsenal can add to Leicester’s end-of-season woes and I wonder if both sides will have new managers at the start of the 2018/19 season.”

Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when the Gunners finished the season unbeaten.

The Gunners wasted their best chance to win the Premier League in 2015-16 when Arsenal finished in second place in the table but 10 points behind champions Leicester City.

Arsenal finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table.
