Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has predicted that Manchester United will defeat Arsenal in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

The Red Devils are looking to bounce back from a 2-1 home loss to Sheffield United in midweek.

The Gunners have not lost in the league since they beat Chelsea 3-1 on Boxing Day.

United could return to the summit if they beat Arsenal and current leaders Manchester City drop points against Sheffield United.

And Owen told BetVictor: “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.

“Marcus Rashford is so hard to pick up when United are on the counter-attack, and if he’s in the same form as he was in the FA Cup against Liverpool, I can see him getting on the scoresheet.

“Arsenal 1-2 Manchester United”.
