Berbatov, Owen make prediction for Manchester United vs Arsenal clash

Manchester United are set to welcome Arsenal at Old Trafford this Sunday, a match that highlights weekend's Premier League fixtures. 

Arsenal has not had a pleasing record against top-four rivals and have a chance to end the club's 14-year run of failing to win a Premier League game at Old Trafford. The Gunners will be keen to bounce back following their recent 1-0 defeat to Leicester over the weekend. 

The two sides haven't had a great start to the current campaign with the Gunners losing three of their last three EPL matches while United have suffered two defeats. 

Club legends Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen have all made their predictions ahead of the most anticipated game this Sunday. Berbatov believes United will edge Arsenal by a 2-1 scoreline while Owen is backing the two sides to settle for a draw. 

Berbatov prediction

"It’s crazy to see these two teams play when they are both so low in the table! United’s confidence will be high, but often you have a brilliant result followed by a horror show. I want to see United kick on up the table, and I think they can edge out Arsenal here."

Prediction: 2-1

Owen prediction

"Manchester United take on Arsenal in a match that always draws plenty of media attention prior to kick-off,’ he said in his BetVictor column.

"Arsenal’s early-season rise has been dampened slightly with recent results, so they’ll be looking at this as the perfect platform to get going again. United themselves have picked up. Their outstanding European results must have raised the confidence levels at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford is really starting to fire and he could be United’s danger man here. However, I think if Arsenal can keep him quiet, they could come away with a point."
