Michael Owen, a former Manchester United striker, has predicted some of the Premier League’s match-day fifteen matches.
On Saturday afternoon, West Ham United will face Chelsea at the London Stadium.
On Sunday, Manchester United will host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, while Tottenham Hotspur will face Norwich City.
On Monday night, Everton will host Arsenal at Goodison Park.
“What a game to start the Premier League weekend!” Owen told BetVictor when asked for his predictions. West Ham are currently on a poor run of form, and David Moyes must be gutted to have conceded such a late equalizer to Brighton. The good news is that they have maintained their position in the top four, but they must begin to gain ground.
“It wasn’t a resounding victory, but Chelsea’s win over Watford on Wednesday was crucial. My only concern for them right now is the number of goals they’re putting up. Lukaku is still getting back into shape, so they need him to be ready to play.
“I think this will be a close game, but I think Chelsea will win it 2-1.”
“The main man, Cristiano Ronaldo, stole the headlines again with his 800th and 801st career goals in the win against Arsenal,” Owen said of Man Utd’s win over Crystal Palace. It will be fascinating to see how Ralf Rangnick adjusts to his new role as United manager and how he manages Ronaldo.
“Palace has now lost two games in a row. They had a couple of chances against Leeds on Tuesday, but conceding in the final minute must be difficult to swallow.
“Palace has caused problems for the top teams this season, and I don’t think United will have an easy time of it.” However, I believe they will have far too much, 2-1.”
“The pressure is well and truly on Rafa Benitez now,” Owen said ahead of Everton’s match against Arsenal. Everton’s recent form has been poor, but their performance against Liverpool was particularly concerning. They do have a lot of injuries, so getting Calvert-Lewin back as soon as possible is crucial.
“Mikel Arteta will be disappointed to have left Old Trafford empty-handed. Arsenal were a little too complacent after taking the lead, and it will be viewed as a missed opportunity.
“For Rafa Benitez, this is a make-or-break game. I don’t think Everton will lose; I’m predicting a 1-1 draw.”
“Spurs aren’t exactly scoring at will, but they are beginning to look more solid,” Owen said of Tottenham’s match against Norwich City. “I’m going with Spurs 1-0.”
