Michael Owen has cast his eye over the upcoming weekend of Premier League action, making a prediction for each game including the clash between Manchester United and Arsenal.
United welcome the Gunners to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to haul themselves out of the bottom half of the table.
Arsenal have lost their last two league games 1-0, while the Red Devils were held to a goalless draw by Chelsea last weekend.
But both teams returned to winning ways in midweek, with United thumping RB Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League and Arsenal beating Dundalk 3-0 in the Europa League.
Previewing the weekend's blockbuster match, Owen tipped Arsenal to come away from the north-west with at least one point.
He told BetVictor : "Arsenal’s early season rise has been dampened slightly with recent results, so they’ll be looking at this as the perfect platform to get going again.
"United themselves have picked up. Their outstanding European results must have raised the confidence levels at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford is really starting to fire and he could be United’s danger man here.

"However, I think if Arsenal can keep him quiet, they could come away with a point."
Owen also previewed Liverpool's Saturday evening tie with West Ham and fancied Jurgen Klopp's men to have "too much" for the Irons.
"I reckon we’ll see a home win with both sides scoring," he added, while tipping Reds forward Sadio Mane to get on the scoresheet.
