Michael Owen States His Prediction For West Ham vs Arsenal

By on April 8, 2016

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has offered his prediction ahead of Arsenal’s clash with West Ham this weekend.

We head to Upton Park on Saturday lunchtime desperately needing to come away with all three points in order to put some pressure on the top two.

With Leicester and Tottenham not playing until Sunday, a win over the Hammers would see us close the gap on Spurs to just a point while the Foxes lead would be down to eight points.

With just seven games remaining, there is little room for error if we want to pull off an unlikely comeback to clinch the title but it’s not going to be easy against a West Ham side who are chasing an unlikely top four finish.

Slaven Bilic’s side currently sit sixth, just three points adrift of Man City, while they also beat us 2-0 at the Emirates on the opening day of the season, so we should know this is going to be an extremely difficult game.

It’s usually an entertaining affair when we take on West Ham and BT Sport pundit Michael Owen believes there will once again be goals at Upton Park tomorrow, with the former striker predicting both teams to score in his column for BetVictor:

The Hammers are looking to do the double over the Gunners having won at the Emirates on the opening weekend of the season; that said Arsenal had won the previous nine games in the PL between the clubs and this is a very big game for both clubs with Europe.

The Irons are three points off that final Champions League spot and they need to win to mount a realistic challenge for a top four finish; their last two games have finished in 2-2 draws and I expect to see goals at the Boleyn Ground.

Michael’s recommendation: Both teams to score at 8/13

This is one of those rare situations where I actually agree with Owen as I do think both teams will score tomorrow, but let’s just hope we manage to score at least one more than West Ham!
