Michael Owen is predicting that Arsenal will beat Fulham in a high-scoring game at The Emirates on New Year’s Day.

The Gunners suffered a 5-1 loss to Premier League leaders Liverpool FC at Anfield last weekend despite having taken the lead on Merseyside thanks to Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ opener.

Arsenal fell five points adrift of Chelsea FC in the race to finish in the top four after the Blues edged to a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Unai Emery’s side have collected 23 points from their 10 games at the Emirates Stadium this season and haven’t lost a home Premier League game since a 2-0 defeat by Manchester City in their season opener.

Arsenal have won their last three homes games in the English top flight, notching up victories over Burnley, Huddersfield Town and Tottenham Hotspur.

Fulham’s 1-0 win against Huddersfield Town last time out is their only win in their last six Premier League games under new manager Claudio Ranieri – and their second in their last 17 outings.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is tipping Arsenal to secure a return to winning ways against Fulham at The Emirates on New Year’s Day to bolster their pursuit of a fourth-placed finish.

“Arsenal are taken to bounce back from their Anfield mauling when they had their limitations cruelly exposed by a rampant Liverpool side on Saturday evening,” Owen told BetVictor.

“Aleksandar Mitrovic’s late winner gave Fulham a much-needed three points against Huddersfield at Craven Cottage, but the Gunners are a different proposition back at the Emirates and they are taken to keep the points from this London Derby.”

Arsenal finished outside the top four in the last two Premier League seasons.
