EPL: Michael Owen predicts results of Man City vs Man Utd, Chelsea vs Everton, others

Former Premier League and La Liga star, Michael Owen has predicted Manchester City to beat Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League fixture at the Etihad Stadium.

He also tipped Chelsea to defeat Everton on Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

Owen, however, predicted a high scoring match between Arsenal versus Wolves at the Emirates on Sunday.

“City’s title celebrations had to be put on ice when United came from two-goals down to win 3-2 at the Etihad back in the spring, and I expect to see both sides find the back of the net in Sunday’s Manchester derby,” Owen told BetVictor.

“United cannot afford to be slowly out of the blocks again this weekend, and I feel it will be Pep Guardiola’s side who win the last game before the international break.”

On the Chelsea vs Everton game, Owen said: “Everton have not won at Stamford Bridge since November 1994 and have not enjoyed their recent visits to the capital losing their last four.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the competitive debut of Colombian centre-back Yerry Mina for Marco Silva’s side with Kurt Zouma ineligible against his parent club.”

“Chelsea are in Europa League action in Belarus on Thursday, but they have coped admirably with their Thursday-Sunday routine so far this season and they have the strength in depth to keep the points from what promises to be an entertaining clash.”

Commenting on the Arsenal vs Wolves game, Owen added: “After going six games without defeat, Wolves have lost their last three in the Premier League and have not won in their last 19 games against the Gunners in all competitions.

“Arsenal have picked up 59 points from the last 63 available at home against newly promoted sides and Wolves – for all their fluent football – are struggling in front of goal on the road with only three goals scored in their five away games so far this season.

“I don’t expect to see many goals at the Emirates.”

The kick-off time for Chelsea vs Everton is 3:15pm, while that of Man City vs Man United and Arsenal vs Wolves is 5:30pm.
