Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to ease to a straightforward win against Huddersfield Town at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners will be looking to bounce back from their 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford mid-week after Shkodran Mustafi’s header and David De Gea’s own goal.

Arsenal can take positives from the stalemate at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, notably Sead Kolasinac’s performance on the left side of the pitch, while the Gunners are 12 games unbeaten.

Remarkably, Unai Emery’s side haven’t lost a game in all competitions in their last 20 outings since a 3-2 loss to Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge back in August.

Arsenal are in fifth place in the Premier League table and level on points with Chelsea FC, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Arsenal to ease to a comfortable win against Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“Arsenal are unbeaten in 20 games in all competitions and four points this week from the visit of Spurs and a trip to Old Trafford shows just how far Unai Emery’s side have come in such a short period of time,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Town have lost eight of their last nine top-flight games against the Gunners and failed to score in each of those games. I fancy a similar scoreline at the Emirates.”

Arsenal have conceded 20 times in 15 games in the Premier League this season, which will be a concern for Gunners boss Emery.

The north London side suffered two injury blows at Old Trafford on Wednesday night after Ron Holding succumbed to a serious knee problem and Aaron Ramsey picked up a knock.

The Gunners netted six times in home and away games in the Premier League last term.
