Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to beat West Ham United at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last term to culminate in Arsene Wenger’s exit after 22 seasons in charge of the north London side.

Arsenal are still searching for their first Premier League win since Unai Emery took over the reins from one of the north London side’s greatest-ever managers.

The Gunners suffered a 2-0 loss to defending Premier League champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium following goals Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.

Arsenal made the short trip across London to Chelsea FC last weekend as the Gunners faced their neighbours who also overhauled their squad under a new manager this summer.

The Blues eased to a 3-2 win against Arsenal thanks to Marcos Alonso’s 81st munute winner at Stamford Bridge last weekend to condemn the Gunners to successive Premier League losses.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen believes the north London side will finally secure three points against West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“The Gunners defending still leaves something to be desired, however, although I do feel they will gain their first win of the season against the Hammers who conceded the lead and all three points to Bournemouth at the weekend,” Owen told BetVictor.

Arsenal are taking on a West Ham side that have lost to Liverpool FC and Bournemouth in their opening two Premier League fixtures.
