first_imgCan Son Heung-Min fire Spurs past Brighton? (AFP/Getty Images)Spurs have won all three games played at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium without conceding a goal and I expect them to continue that sequence against Brighton even though the Seagulls picked up a terrific point at Molineux on Saturday.Chris Hughton’s side have failed to score in their last five league games and they look sure to defend deep, and in numbers, against the Champions League semi-finalists.I expect Spurs to eventually break down the Brighton defence although they may have to be patient as they look to cement their place in the top four.Michael’s prediction: Tottenham 3-0 BrightonWATFORD VS SOUTHAMPTON Advertisement Arsenal need Alexandre Lacazette to be firing as they face Wolves (Getty Images)Wolves have never beaten Arsenal in the Premier League (drawn two, lost seven) and the visitors need to bounce back after their home reverse to Crystal Palace on Sunday.Wolves were left frustrated by Brighton at the weekend, but the Gunners will play a more expansive game midweek.It is well documented that the hosts have a better record against the top six than the bottom six so far this term and they have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five home games.I don’t expect to see many goals, but if there is to be a winner at Molineux I feel the hosts will edge it.Michael’s prediction: Wolves 1-0 ArsenalMANCHESTER UNITED VS MANCHESTER CITY Michael Owen returns with his latest Premier League picks (Getty/PA)The race for the Premier League title continues at a frantic pace and Manchester City have the chance to overtake Liverpool as they travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Wednesday evening.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in a race of their own as they are aiming to secure a top-four finish but their hopes were dented on Sunday after they were beaten 4-0 by Everton.Arsenal are also in the mix for a top-four spot as they travel to Wolves, while Tottenham host Brighton on Tuesday night.Once again our Brand Ambassador Michael Owen shared his thoughts ahead of the action with BetVictor.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTTOTTENHAM VS BRIGHTON Michael OwenTuesday 23 Apr 2019 4:25 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link113Shares Michael Owen’s midweek Premier League predictions including Manchester United v Manchester City and Wolves v Arsenalcenter_img Gerard Deulofeu is in excellent form for Watford (Getty Images)Southampton have only lost one of their last 11 games against Watford, but if there is to be a winner at Vicarage Road I feel it will be the Hornets.The hosts have conceded in their last eight Premier League games and I would expect to see goals again midweek with in-form Gerard Deulofeu – 8 goals and 2 assists in his last 9 games – likely to be to the fore again.Michael’s prediction: Watford 2-1 SouthamptonWOLVES 1-0 ARSENAL Can Paul Pogba and Manchester United bounce back at Old Trafford? (AFP/Getty Images)City have only lost one of their last seven league visits to Old Trafford but United badly need to bounce back after their abject display at Goodison Park on Sunday.All at the club will be hurting after their 4-0 defeat at Everton but they have the ideal opportunity on Wednesday to put the record straight – they certainly cannot play as badly again.AdvertisementAdvertisementCity must do without Kevin De Bruyne – injured against Spurs at the weekend – which is a huge loss for the champions, but I expect to see opportunities and goals at both ends.United are unbeaten in their last 14 home league games but have kept just the two clean sheets in the league this season.This is a massive game for both teams and one which, I feel, could be pivotal in the destiny of the 2018/19 Premier League title.Michael’s prediction: Manchester United 2-2 Manchester CityMichael Owen is a brand ambassador for BetVictor.
