Michael Owen predicts Tottenham vs Chelsea, West Ham vs Man Utd, Arsenal
Former Real Madrid player, Michael Owen, has predicted outcomes of some of the Premier League fixtures that will be played this weekend.
Chelsea will tackle Tottenham Hotspur in an away Premier League tie on Sunday evening, while West Ham will host Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
Arsenal will face Burnley in an away Premier League tie on Saturday.
Providing his predictions, Owen told BetVictor, “Chelsea right now are looking for the team to beat for me. Defensively they look so solid, they have only conceded once, and that was a penalty against Liverpool. With Lukaku playing as well as he’s, this Chelsea team have no weaknesses.
“Spurs have started the season well but that defeat to [Crystal] Palace was disappointing.
“Right now, Chelsea don’t look like losing. They have not lost to Spurs in the league for three years and I don’t see that changing here. I fancy a 2-1 win for Tuchel’s men.”
Commenting on the West Ham vs Man Utd game, Owen said, “There is only one place to start, the return of Cristiano Ronaldo. With three goals in three games the great man is back with a bang. I can’t say I am surprised, I predicted him to score over 20 goals this season, I might be wrong though, maybe he will score 30! He may be 36 but top-level movement and striker instincts don’t age.
“Speaking of strikers, Michail Antonio has been in outstanding form for David Moyes’ side. He has always had the physical tools but now he is consistently adding goals, he must be a nightmare to play against.
“I would not be surprised to see Antonio score here but I still fancy United to win. United are the league’s joint top scorers and I think they’ll just have too much firepower.”
On the Burnley vs Arsenal match, Owen said, “Burnley started well at Goodison on Monday but Sean Dyche will be disappointed with how they faded in that game.
“Arsenal may have got the win against Norwich last week, but I am still not overly impressed with them.
“Arsenal are always vulnerable on these sorts of away trips. I fancy Burnley to get a vital three points here.”
