Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen is backing the Gunners to seal a win over Aston Villa this weekend.
Arsenal thrashed Greek side Olympiacos 3-0 during midweek to seal a spot in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League and the former England international is tipping Arsene Wenger’s men to beat the Villains 3-1 on Sunday at Villa Park.
Owen wrote on his column for Colossus Bets: “The less said about Aston Villa’s season the better, and I can see many punters banking on AOA (Any Other Away) here when Arsenal visit.
“But while I obviously think Arsenal will win, they are still not totally convincing – notwithstanding their superb 3-0 away win to progress in the Champions League on Wednesday night – especially with their injuries. I take the Gunners to win 3-1 or 2-1.”
The north London side will go top of the Premier League table if they beat Remi Garde's team.
