Michael Owen makes predictions for Arsenal v Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool

Michael Owen expects Manchester United to beat Arsenal in this weekend’s much-anticipated Premier League clash and has also predicted wins for Chelsea and Liverpool.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to north London on Saturday evening looking to bounce back from Wednesday’s shock defeat to bottom-placed Sheffield United.

Manchester United climbed to the top of the Premier League table earlier in the month and could return to the summit if they beat Arsenal and current leaders Manchester City drop points against Sheffield United.

Arsenal will provide a stern test for the Red Devils, however, with Mikel Arteta’s side recovering from a dismal start to the 2020-21 campaign to climb into the top-half of the table.

On Sunday, Thomas Tuchel takes charge of his second game as Chelsea manager as the Blues welcome in-form Burnley to Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel saw Chelsea draw 0-0 with Wolves in his first match in charge and will hope to secure his first Premier League victory, with the club slipping to ninth under former boss Frank Lampard.
Defending champions Liverpool are also in action tomorrow. Jurgen Klopp’s side – who beat Tottenham during the week – travel to east London to face West Ham.

‘This is a fixture that always fills the column inches and that’ll be no different ahead of this weekend’s clash.
‘Arsenal have turned the corner after being so poor before the turn of the year and United could do no wrong until their huge slip up at home to Sheffield United.

‘That said, it is away from Old Trafford where I have been most impressed with Manchester United.
‘If they can employ similar tactics as they did home and away against Liverpool, I think they could nick this on the break.

‘Thomas Tuchel would’ve hoped for a better result in his first match as Chelsea manager.

‘However, he was only hours into the job prior to Wednesday’s 0-0 draw at home to Wolves, so he should have his players better drilled ahead of this.

‘Burnley are turning into ‘smash and grab’ specialists, however, with a few days training now under the new manager’s belt, I think Chelsea will have enough to get the points.’

‘Liverpool returned to winning ways with a controlled away victory at Tottenham on Thursday night. Again, the Reds travel to London to take on a West Ham side that are absolutely flying.

‘The Hammers have won their last four on the bounce and are undefeated in their last 6 Premier League matches. So, the home side will absolutely fancy their chances here.
‘I think this could be tight. Liverpool will look to dominate possession, and I think one goal may be enough to clinch the points for the Reds.’
