Michael Owen

Former Manchester United and Liverpool star Michael Owen predicted the clash between Arsenal and Crystal Palace at the Emirate Stadium tonight.

Michael Owen predicted that the Arsenal striker, Alexandre Lacazette, would continue his impressive form by pulling the Gunners to a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday night.

Arsenal made a 4-0 win over West Brom in their previous Premier League game last Saturday, while Crystal Palace defeated Sheffield United 2-0.

“Arsenal seems to be growing in confidence,” Michael Owen wrote in his column BetVictor, where he is predicting a 2-1 win for Arsenal with Alexandre Lacazette as one of the Gunners’ goal-scorers.

“They notched up their fourth win in a row at the weekend with an extra-time win in the FA Cup against Newcastle. The mood certainly seems better at the Emirates, and I would expect them to keep improving.

“Palace are still too inconsistent for me. They have only won once in their last seven matches, and that came against a struggling Sheffield United.

“With the positive vibes now back at the Emirates, I think the home side will continue on their upward curve and take the points.”

The kick-off time for Arsenal vs Crystal Palace is 9 pm.
