Former England and Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has predicted some of the FA Cup fixtures that will be played this weekend.

Southampton host Arsenal in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Despite conceding, the Gunners have turned a corner, Owen fancies the Saints to edge it.

“Ralph Hasenhüttl will again have his side well drilled and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he gave up some territory,” Owen told BetVictor.

“If he does so, I think Southampton have enough on the counter-attack to nick this one in what I’d expect to be cagey affair.”

Owen also predicts routine wins for Chelsea at home to Luton, Everton over Sheffield Wednesday, Man City at Cheltenham, and Tottenham on the road against Wycombe.

He, however, believes there still be an upset on the cards, as he feels Championship promotion chasers Brentford have enough to eliminate Leicester City out of the competition.
