If Michael Owen's prediction for the Manchester derby happens, it will be decision time for the Manchester United board as he believes Manchester City will return to winning ways following their shocking home defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend. He also believes that Watford will not be much of a problem for the Gunners who surprised him by beating Leicester City last Saturday.

Since the United hierarchy reportedly gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 3 games to save his job he has managed to avoid defeat. However, this game is different as it is against their local rivals and is the first at Old Trafford since the humiliating defeat to Liverpool. Back-to-back home defeats may not be acceptable to the fans and that may force the board into needing to make another tough decision.

That will likely be the case as Owen predicted a comfortable win for the Citizens, saying they will play through the Red Devils just as Liverpool did at Old Trafford two weeks ago. He predicted Manchester City to win 3-1.

Michael Owen predicted that Arsenal will lose to Leicester City last weekend but had to admit this week that they have turned things around. He is right because after the last weekend's win the Gunners are unbeaten in their last 7 Premier League games.

On the contrary, their opponent on Sunday, Watford, has not been able to go two games without suffering a defeat. As a result, as things stand they are fifth from bottom in the league table and are one of the favourites to be relegated at the end of the season.

The former Manchester United player said he sees nothing but a win for the Gunners and predicted they will beat Watford 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
