Michael Owen has ruled out Leicester City ending their 25-year winless run at Arsenal on Monday night.

The Gunners have bounced back from a difficult start to the Premier League season after Unai Emery’s side suffered a 2-0 loss to defending champions Manchester City and a 3-2 defeat by Chelsea FC.

Arsenal have managed to make up some ground on Premier League title rivals Manchester City, Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC to prompt talk of an unlikely title challenge from the Gunners this season.

Emery’s side have responded with six successive Premier League victories to hoist themselves up the table and put them in contention for the Champions League qualification spots.

The north London side eased to a resounding 5-1 win against Fulham last time out to make quite the statement ahead of the international break.

The Spanish head coach will be eager to see his Gunners side to extend their winning run when Leicester City make the trip to Arsenal on Monday night.

Leicester have already conceded 14 times in eight games in the Premier League, while Arsenal have netted 19 goals in the English top flight thanks in part to the form of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen believes Arsenal will record their seventh successive Premier League win against Leicester at The Emirates on Monday night.

“Leicester haven’t won at Arsenal in their last 25 visits and I expect to see Unai Emery’s side maintain their excellent recent run,” Owen told BetVictor.

“The Gunners are looking for their 10th consecutive win in all competitions for the sixth time in their history but first since October 2007.

“Arsenal have goals in their locker and I expect to see another open, entertaining contest with the points staying in the capital.”

The Gunners have won six games on the spin to close ground on their title rivals, with a top-four finish looking like a more realistic target this term.

The north London side signed five players in the summer transfer window after Emery replaced Wenger in the summer.
