Former England striker, Michael Owen, has predicted some of the Premier League matches that will be played this Sunday.

Manchester City are away to 10th-placed Arsenal at the Emirates.

Pep Guardiola’s men have the chance to secure their 13th consecutive win against the Gunners.

Owen feels they will beat the Gunners 3-1.

“The Citizens are steam-rolling all before them at the minute, and with a win in the cup already under their belts at the Emirates this season, I think they’ll have too much for the home side once again,” he said.

On Manchester United’s clash against Newcastle at Old Trafford, Owen added: “This is a big test for Newcastle and it is one I think that’s just out of their grasp at the minute.

“It’s 2-0 Manchester United for me.”

Europa League: Mourinho reacts to Tottenham’s draw against Dinamo

By

Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho, has reacted to the Europa league last 16 draw that pitted his side against Dinamo Zagreb.

Tottenham was lucky to have avoided Manchester United and Arsenal in the draw and Mourinho believes that at this stage there is no easy team left in the competition.

Addressing the press on Friday after the draws were confirmed, Mourinho said, “When you are in this competition and you get to this stage you don’t get easy clubs. If you want to win it, sooner or later you have to play against the best clubs or the ones who go through the different stages.”

The Portuguese said his team’s objective at the moment is to win against Dinamo and prepare to meet Arsenal and Manchester United later in the competition, adding, “we have always had to face them.

“I think, yeah it happened in the Champions League final, two English clubs, happened in the Europa League with Arsenal and Chelsea too.

“It’s something that can happen and if it does, wonderful for us if we are one of the two teams and wonderful for English football to have two teams in the final.

“But at this moment 16 teams, everybody wants the same so it’s very premature to think about it. Dinamo, they beat Krasnodar twice.

“I played against them with Real Madrid in the Champions League. Croatian football is Croatian football, with lots of talent. It’s a football country.”
