“Chelsea arrives here after a solid showing reception to West Ham, and that I think the Blues should have quite enough going forward to win this against a side that’s really struggling in every area. Arsenal 0-2 Chelsea.”
Commenting on the Wolves vs Tottenham game, Owen said: “Tottenham will want to forget last week fast and obtain back on target away to Wolves.
“Jose Mourinho’s sides’ title hopes took an enormous dent, with a defeat to Liverpool and a home defeat to Leicester rubbing salt in their wounds.

On the Leicester City vs Man United match, Owen said, “It is fair to mention that Manchester United’s season has to wake up in recent weeks.
“Leicester put their home defeat to Everton behind them with an incredible away result at Tottenham, and for all they’ve been a touch inconsistent this season, they’ll be delighted with their 2nd place within the table just.
“This one might be tight. I don’t think there’s much between the edges, and that I reckon a draw might be the result with each side scoring. Leicester City 1-1 Manchester United.”
