Michael Owen has predicted both Arsenal and Tottenham to lose their fixtures at the weekend.

The Gunners take on Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium, where they have not lost all season, while Spurs travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford.

Despite Arsenal's impressive home record Owen, writing for BetVictor, admitted that he favours Manchester United to win the game.

"Arsenal have won their last twelve home games in a row but I can see United getting at least a point in the game of the weekend at the Emirates" Owen said. "A fascinating contest, which could go either way although I am just swaying towards Manchester United."

Similarly, the former Manchester United and Liverpool striker has tipped Watford to come out on top against Spurs. 

"Leicester put a dent in Spurs’ top four hopes midweek and Mauricio Pochettino’s side have already lost as many Premier League games (4) this term as they did in the whole of last season.

"The Hornets have shipped ten goals at Vicarage Road against the two Manchester clubs in the Premier League this season although they improved in the second half against United midweek.

"Spurs are relying too heavily on Harry Kane for goals and if there is to be a winner at Vicarage Road, I think it might be the hosts."

With both London sides still vying for a top four finish they will be hoping to prove Owen wrong and collect the three points that they need.
