Michael Owen makes blunt Arsenal claim as Cristiano Ronaldo transfer decision is made – Football.London

Here is your Arsenal morning digest on Saturday, August 28.

Owen’s Arsenal prediction

Former England striker Michael Owen thinks Arsenal will lose for a third successive Premier League game later today against Manchester City.

The Gunners go to the Etihad Stadium to face reigning champions Man City at 12:30pm, and Owen can only see it going one way.

He said to BetVictor, via the Mirror : “It’s been a terrible start to the season for Arsenal and it’s not going to get any easier here.

“Of course, they were missing some starters on Sunday against Chelsea, but it was still far too comfortable a win for Chelsea.

“It wasn’t even a surprise to see Arsenal struggle, in fact, the only surprise was that it wasn’t more. If not for Leno in goal, this could have been embarrassing.

“I still don’t think City are fully firing on all cylinders in an attacking sense just yet, but I still see no other winner here.

“Arsenal have yet to score a goal this season and I don’t think that will change. I’m going 2-0 City.”

Juve make Ronaldo decision

With Cristiano Ronaldo having now seemingly left Juventus, the Old Lady have now registered their interest in Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Ronaldo wants to leave the Turin-based club, with Manchester United now among the frontrunners to land the 36-year-old’s signature.

Arsenal starlets get England U21 call-up
