Michael Owen is backing Arsenal to beat Bournemouth in a high-scoring game at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners are looking to build their momentum in the Premier League after a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford last Monday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a second-half equaliser to cancel out Scott McTominay’s goal at Old Trafford and secure a point.

The Gunners consolidated their place in the Premier League’s top four thanks to their stalemate with their bitter rivals.

Arsenal were 4-0 winners against Belgian side Standard Liege in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Brazilian summer signing Gabriel Martinelli scored twice in three minutes in the first half before Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos sealed a resounding home victory.

Bournemouth have beaten Aston Villa and Southampton on the road so far this season, although the Cherries did suffer a 3-1 defeat by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Former Manchester United striker Owen is backing Arsenal to beat Bournemouth at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

“Arsenal were good value for their point at Old Trafford on Monday and I expect them to brush aside the challenge of Bournemouth back at the Emirates on Sunday,” Owen told BetVictor.

“The Gunners only defeat so far this season came at Anfield although they must improve defensively if they are to return to the Champions League automatically at the end of the season.”

Arsenal are looking to finish in the top four for the first time under their current manager after missing out on Champions League football under Unai Emery last term.

The Gunners have only lost to Liverpool FC in the current Premier League campaign but Arsenal have drawn with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Watford.
