Aston Villa vs Leicester
According to Michael Owen, Leicester should win because Aston Villa have won three of their last nine league outings, a run of form that has seen them drop to eighth. Their only defeat in their last five at Villa Park came at West Ham's expense earlier this month and they have a solid home record against Leicester, winning three of the last five meetings between the pair in Birmingham.
Leicester were held to a 0-0 draw with Slavia Prague on Thursday night, but that won't deter them ahead of a testing trip to Villa. Indeed, the Foxes have lost just one of their last 15 matches in all competitions, while away from home, they haven't lost since a 1-0 defeat to Zorya back in December.
This promises to be one of the more entertaining clashes of the weekend with goals aplenty and a share of the spoils on the cards.
Arsenal vs Manchester City.
According to Michael Owen's prediction, man city should win because Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta practically went full strength against Benfica on Thursday and only got a 1-1 draw. While a positive result on paper given the away goal ruling, Arsenal will be deflated after missing a real opportunity to win. Arteta may well wonder whether he did the right thing picking so many regulars, particularly now they face Manchester City with little time to rest.
Manchester City went 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League on Wednesday with their 10th straight victory in the competition. They haven't even gone behind in a Premier League match since November and look on course to romp to their third Premier League title in four years.
This isn't a fixture Arsenal have done particularly well in of late and it's hard to see that changing here given City's current form. Worryingly for the Gunners, they could be as many as 11 points off fourth by the end of the weekend.
