Former Premier League and La Liga striker, Michael Owen has predicted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United to beat Unai Emery’s Arsenal 2-1 in tonight’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at the Emirates.
Arsenal head to the game following a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in the Premier League encounter last weekend, while Man United defeated Brighton 2-1.
Owen told BetVictor: “These two great clubs have played each other 14 times previously in the FA Cup and they have eliminated each other seven times apiece. On the last three occasions Arsenal have knocked out United (2003 5th Round, 2005 Final & 2015 ¼ Final) the Gunners have gone on to lift the Trophy, but I fancy United to go marching on under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“It was hard not to be impressed with Arsenal against Chelsea at the Emirates last weekend. The Gunners played with intensity and pace from the opening whistle and ran out emphatic winners against a disappointing Blues’ side.
“United look full of goals at present, however, with Marcus Rashford scoring in his last four PL games. I expect to see a cracking Cup tie, but it is United who I feel will make it through to the 5th Round. Michael’s prediction: Arsenal 1 – 2 Manchester United.”
The kick-off time for the match is 8:55pm.
