Michael Owen’s FA Cup and Premier League predictions including Liverpool, Arsenal & Man City Comment Michael OwenFriday 5 Apr 2019 11:39 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link Advertisement Man City came from 2-0 down to beat Swansea in their quarter final tie (Picture: Getty)City continue their attempt for a clean sweep of trophies this season and they are very strong favourites in their FA Cup Semi Final with lowly Brighton. Albion needed penalties in the last round to eliminate Championship outfit Millwall and were beaten 2-0 in Manchester earlier in the season. They have only tasted victory once in their last ten top flight matches and will need to produce a huge shock to qualify for the final. City may not need to reach top form to progress but will surely have far too much weaponry. Once again they were on the bridle when defeating relegation threatened Cardiff 2-0 at home in midweek and you always feel the team can easily go through the gears if necessary.Michael’s prediction: 3-0Watford vs Wolves Eden Hazard was back to his best in the midweek win over Brighton (Picture: Getty)Chelsea followed up their late win at Cardiff with a resounding 3-0 home win over Brighton on Wednesday and will be hoping to make it a quick double when they host West Ham. Victory is looking essential to keep their top four hopes alive and with only one defeat on home soil in the PL this term they have made Stamford Bridge quite a fortress. The Hammers have taken just one point from a possible last eighteen on the road and despite plenty of attacking flair are highly unlikely to add to that tally here.Michael’s prediction: 3-1Manchester City vs Brighton Advertisement Huddersfield Town’s relegation was confirmed last week at Selhurst Park (Picture: Getty)Relegation was confirmed for the Terriers last weekend during a fourth straight loss and they may very well be regretting sacking manager David Wagner now. It’s difficult to see, with a tough fixture list ahead, where they will find another win and with the squad demoralised a veil of gloom hangs over them. Leicester are battling to finish in the top half and with three wins on the bounce are in terrific form. Striker Jamie Vardy has scored six goals in his last seven appearance and is bound to be a handful again.Michael’s prediction: 0-2Newcastle vs Crystal PalaceNewcastle as expected were defeated in London on Monday as Arsenal proved too strong but back on home turf the Toon can get back to winning ways. They are not totally safe from the drop but one more success should be sufficient. With seven PL wins at St James Park United are strong although ironically Palace have tasted more success on their travels than at home. The Eagles were unable to prevent Spurs from crowning the opening of their new ground with victory on Wednesday evening where they also failed to score. The clubs played out a goalless draw earlier in the season and I expect another low scoring and tight affair.Michael’s prediction: 1-0Everton vs Arsenal Arsenal temporarily moved into third after Monday’s win over Newcastle (Picture: Getty)The Gunners have hit top form at the right time and after looking likely to miss out on a top four place have taken 16 points from a possible 18 during a great six game unbeaten run. They now travel north to Merseyside where hosts Everton are also suddenly finding some late season form and hoping to finish in the top ten. Successive wins over London clubs Chelsea and West Ham see the Toffees looking for a capital hat trick and there certainly could be a surprise I feel. With London rivals Spurs and Chelsea both successful on Wednesday there is now just a solitary point between the trio but I will be surprised if the visitors can come away with all three points on this occasion.AdvertisementAdvertisementMichael’s prediction: 1-1Chelsea vs West Ham Elton John was the Watford chairman last time they reached an FA Cup final in 1984 (Picture: Getty)The second Semi Final looks far more intriguing and difficult to call. Both enjoyed tremendous midweek success and are in relatively decent form. Only one point separates the pair in the PL table so this is a contest which could go either way. With plenty of attacking options it’s hard not to envisage plenty of chances and this should be a great battle. Purely at the prices and with the tag of underdogs a little surprising, I think Watford will finally prevail and reach the final.AdvertisementMichael’s prediction: 2-1Michael’s Weekend Treble – Liverpool, Leicester and Chelsea all to win at 13/5More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut? Ian Wright picks his Arsenal starting XI vs Manchester CityArsene Wenger explains why Mikel Arteta is ‘lucky’ to be managing Arsenal It’s a huge weekend of FA Cup and Premier League action (Picture: Getty / Metro)We’re set for a weekend of Premier League and FA Cup action – and Brand Ambassador Michael Owen has again shared his thoughts exclusively with BetVictor.Southampton vs Liverpool Liverpool left it late against Tottenham last weekend (Picture: Getty)Liverpool face a tricky away trip here to St Mary’s where Southampton have already beaten Spurs and Arsenal this season. The Saints are still involved at the foot but gave themselves some much needed breathing space with a 1-0 win at rivals Brighton. They now have a five point cushion over the final relegation spot. The Reds know once again that three points are a must and may very well need to score at least twice as I fully expect the hosts to notch.AdvertisementAdvertisementMichael’s prediction: 1-2Bournemouth vs BurnleyI am sure Burnley manager Sean Dyche would snap your hand off for a point here with the Clarets now five points clear of the drop zone and gradually moving away from danger. A superb 2-0 home success over Wolves ended a frustrating run of four straight defeats and with some tough fixtures ahead they need to avoid defeat on the South Coast. The Cherries have only tasted victory once themselves during their last eight outings which has seen them fall into the bottom half where they now look likely to remain. Survival looks assured, which was always the target, so both teams may be content to share the spoils.ADVERTISEMENTMichael’s prediction: 1-1Huddersfield vs Leicester City

Press Association The 30-year-old, who has a wealth of Grand Tour experience, is joined at the British squad by Scot Andrew Fenn, Czech rider Leopold Konig, Dutchman Wout Poels and Lars Petter Nordhaug, who has re-signed for Team Sky after two years away. Roche’s signing is significant as it strengthens Chris Froome’s support for the 2015 Tour de France, while simultaneously weakening Alberto Contador’s squad as the Irishman was previously at Tinkoff-Saxo. Team Sky has announced the signing of Irishman Nicolas Roche as one of five new names for 2015. Brailsford added: “We’ve signed five quality riders for next season and each one of them will help strengthen and enhance the squad. “We have a strong nucleus of riders at Team Sky and these signings will be excellent additions to the squad. “They all bring their own qualities and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to the team and seeing them in action next season.” Roche, the son of 1987 Tour de France winner and world champion Stephen Roche, said: “It’s a great honour to sign for Team Sky and I have the opportunity to ride with some of the best riders in the world. “I feel that I’m still developing as a rider so now’s the perfect time to join Team Sky and to continue my upwards path.” Team Sky principal Sir Dave Brailsford said: “He brings a wealth of experience, having ridden 13 Grand Tours in his career, and that will be invaluable to the team. “Nicolas has the perfect character and temperament for us and we expect him to play a key role next season.” Konig is also likely to play a strong support role for Froome, while also riding Grand Tours for a high placing himself. While with Team Net-App-Endura, Konig placed seventh in the 2014 Tour de France and he has claimed stage wins at the Vuelta a Espana, Tour of California and Tour of Britain. The 24-year-old Fenn becomes Team Sky’s first Scottish rider, after moving from Mark Cavendish’s Omega Pharma-QuickStep squad. Poels becomes the first Dutchman at Team Sky and the climber has been watched by the squad for some time, while Nordhaug returns after a three-year stay from 2010 to 2012.
