Former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker, Michael Owen has tipped Chelsea to defeat Newcastle United on Saturday evening in the Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge.
He also predicted Liverpool to beat Brighton in the Premier League fixture on Saturday.
According to Owen, West Ham will defeat Arsenal at the London Stadium in the Premier League fixture on Saturday afternoon.
Owen told BetVictor: “Chelsea have scored 18 times in their last six home league games with Newcastle who have only scored twice in reply.
“The Blues have failed to score in their last two home league games, but I just can’t see United keeping the hosts at arm’s length.
The Magpies continue to struggle for goals – just four in their last 8 league games.
“And I expect the hosts to win a low-scoring affair. “Chelsea to win 2-0 against Newcastle”.
On the Brighton vs Liverpool game, Owen said: “Liverpool have won all three previous Premier League games between the sides by an aggregate score of 10-1 although I don’t think the Reds will run away with the game at the Amex.
“Liverpool’s 21-match unbeaten run came to an end at the Etihad last Thursday, but they lost little in defeat and matched the champions toe-for-toe in an epic Premier League game between two of the best sides in Europe.
“That will mean nil, however, when the players cross the white line. It might be tight and tense but Liverpool to return to winning ways for me.”
Commenting on the West Ham vs Arsenal game, Owen said: “Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 11 away games against West Ham in all competitions, but if there is to be a winner at the London Stadium I feel it will be the hosts, as I still have my reservations about the Gunners defensive capabilities.
“Yes, the hosts have conceded at least once in their last eight home Premier League games and I would be surprised if the Hammers kept a clean sheet this weekend, but Manuel Pellegrini has never finished on the losing side against Unai Emery in six previous home league games (W4 D2).
“A cracking London derby to look forward to with opportunities at both ends.”
