Michael Owen is expecting Manchester United to move level on points with third-place Leicester by the end of play on Thursday.

The former Liverpool, United and England striker thinks his former club will beat Aston Villa on Thursday, while Leicester will slip up against Arsenal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are just three points behind Leicester and two off fourth-place Chelsea – who he expects to beat Crystal Palace this weekend.

He said of Arsenal’s clash with Leicester on Tuesday night in his Bet Victor column: ‘One worrying stat for all Foxes fans is that they haven’t been able to record a win away at Arsenal in 26 attempts in all competitions, and that was before I was born (2-0 on September 8th 1973)!

‘I see that unenviable run continuing with a 2-1 home win to the Gunners.’

As for United’s trip to Villa Park, he added: ‘Aston Villa actually played well at Anfield on Sunday early evening but came away with nothing for their efforts.

‘They are now without a win in ten games and things don’t get any easier as far as their fixtures are concerned.
