Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to play out a low-scoring game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners will be looking to make an immediate return to winning ways in the Premier League following a 1-1 stalemate with Liverpool FC last weekend.

Alexandre Lacazette netted a late equaliser to cancel out James Milner’s opening goal at The Emirates to ensure Unai Emery’s side remained unbeaten since the second weekend of the season.

Arsenal have drawn their last two games with Crystal Palace and Liverpool FC to fall down to fifth spot in the Premier League table behind their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The north London side lost to Manchester City and Chelsea FC in their opening two Premier League games under Emery, but have responded in impressive style under the Spanish head coach.

The Gunners have collected 24 points from their last seven games in the English top flight to make them one of the form teams in the Premier League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have secured a point against Manchester City and Manchester United in the Premier League this season to prove they can mix it in the English top flight.

The promoted side are in 11th place and six points ahead of the relegation zone to suggest that they will beat the drop this season.

Wolves have only conceded 12 times in 11 games in the Premier League this season, which is three goals less than Emery’s Arsenal side.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Arsenal and Wolves to play out a low-scoring game at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

“After going six games without defeat, Wolves have lost their last three in the Premier League and have not won in their last 19 games against the Gunners in all competitions,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Arsenal have picked up 59 points from the last 63 available at home against newly promoted sides and Wolves – for all their fluent football – are struggling in front of goal on the road with only three goals scored in their five away games so far this season.

“I don’t expect to see many goals at the Emirates.”

Arsenal will take on Wolves this weekend before a trip to Bournemouth in their next Premier League game after the international break.
