Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to come out on top in a high-scoring game at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is confident Arsenal will extend their winning run to nine games, but the retired England international does anticipate Palace getting on the score-sheet at Selhurst Park.
“Palace have lost nine of their last 11 Premier League games against Arsenal and they have only scored three times now in their last eight Premier League games, having missed a vital penalty at Goodison on Sunday with the score at 0-0,” Owen told BetVictor.
“Arsenal continue to start slowly, and you wonder if they will get away with such a trend against the very best.
“But some of their football is terrific on the eye and they look full of goals at present.
“I think the Eagles will score at Selhurst Park but still lose this London derby.”
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored four goals in 57 minutes of Premier League football in his last two top-flight appearances for the north London side.
