Owen believes it will be a tight match but has sided with Arsenal to take all three points. He wrote on BetVictor:
“I can’t believe what has happened to Arsenal in recent weeks. Fourth place has been in their hands for most of the season, so to let it slide at the end of the season is extremely disappointing. . The performance against Newcastle was shocking. You would think Newcastle are the team chasing the top four.”
“It was an unbelievable result for Everton on Thursday. I said all season that what could save them was Goodison Park, and they delivered. It was a great comeback, and Everton It’s safe now. I think we’ll see a pretty even game here. Arsenal’s morale isn’t good. I think they’ll win, 2-1.”
‘Something special could happen’ – Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s heart skipped a beat after Everton’s superb escape from defeat
Before the game against Everton, the Gunners manager was asked if he would watch the Toffees’ game against Crystal Palace. As mentioned above, Frank Lampard’s army came back excellently to win 3-2 and ensure their safety.
Arteta believes it shows that anything can happen in the Premier League and that Norwich can also certainly beat Spurs on the final day. He said on the club’s official website:
“I watched it yesterday and that gives me more encouragement about what can happen on the last day at Norwich because this has only happened in this league, and this is what makes this tournament. It’s going to be an incredible tournament, because in a lot of other countries where there’s nothing to play, you don’t see that kind of performance, so we’re hoping that something special can happen. “
Even if Arsenal beat the Toffees, Tottenham would finish in fourth place with a draw against Norwich, thanks to a goal difference ahead of them (24-9).
