Michael Owen predicts results of Man Utd vs Arsenal, others

Former Premier League and La Liga star, Michael Owen has predicted Manchester United to play a draw with Arsenal when both teams clash at Old Trafford on Wednesday night in the Premier League fixture.

He also tipped Liverpool to defeat Burnley on Wednesday night in an away Premier League fixture.

Owen told BetVictor: “Arsenal have not won at Old Trafford in the PL since September 2006 and I feel they will have to settle for a point despite going into the game on the back of a 4-2 win over North London rivals Spurs on Sunday.

“Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 19 competitive games and continue to improve under Unai Emery.

“United did well to come from two-down to get a draw at St Mary’s on Saturday, but they are not convincing at either end of the pitch at present.”

Commenting on the Liverpool game against Burnley, Owen said: “Liverpool have conceded just five times in their 14 PL games so far this term and their dramatic late winner in the Merseyside derby on Sunday kept them within hailing distance of City at the top of the table.

“Burnley have conceded 12 times in their six league games at Turf Moor so far this term and I would be surprised if they got anything from the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.”

The kick-off time for Manchester United vs Arsenal match is 9pm, while that of Burnley vs Liverpool is 8:45pm.

Wenger reveals Ozil’s problem under Emery

Published

Arsene Wenger has suggested Arsenal’s decision to give Mesut Ozil a long-term contract may have left the playmaker in a “comfort zone”.

The Gunners handed Ozil a deal until 2021 last January amid speculation that he would follow Alexis Sanchez out.

Wenger was still manager at the time, and although the move to tie down the player was seen as a positive one, the German has slipped down the pecking order under new boss, Unai Emery.

Ozil last started a game on Boxing Day and has made just two substitute appearances in all competitions in 2019.

“I feel that the length of the contract has nothing to do normally with the selection of the team. But sometimes there are special cases.

“Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years we have a good player for five years. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they practise, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone.

“He has a contract but the problem is that, if you want to buy a player like him, you have to spend £100m. And to maintain the value of the player, beyond the Özil case, it is more about the way football is structured.

“To buy players of top, top quality you need £100m. So the decision you have to make is whether you re-sign the player, who costs us nothing, or do we have the money to buy a new player?” Wenger said after being honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award at the Laureus World Sports Awards on Monday.

Guendouzi signed for the Gunners last summer, joining in a £6m deal from Lorient.

The 19-year-old has quickly established himself at the heart of Unai Emery’s midfield and has made 33 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

PSG have been monitoring Guendouzi’s progress in the Premier League and are considering a bid this summer.

But the Gunners have set a £60m asking price, if the French champions do decide to make a move.

“Letting the team down like that is the worst feeling.

“I should have stayed calm but it’s not always easy. Sorry.

“There are still 90 minutes to play and I believe that my teammates will make it to the next round,” Lacazette wrote on Twitter.

Unai Emery’s side now need to win by at least two goals at home next week to advance.
