Michael Owen makes his prediction for Chelsea’s Community Shield clash against Arsenal

The Community Shield match between Arsenal and Chelsea is nearly upon us and Michael Owen has spoken about the game and his prediction for Sunday’s big clash between the two Premier League giants. The former Manchester United and Liverpool striker predicted on that the Blues will defeat the Gunners on Sunday.

The former England international stated that Jose Mourinho’s side will beat Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal 2-1 in London’s Wembley Stadium.

Owen stated on, “The last two occasions the Gunners have won the Community Shield (2005 & 09) they have gone on to win the title and I expect to see the same scoreline as a decade ago the last time the sides met in the Wembley showpiece.”

“On that occasion two Didier Drogba goals gave the Blues a 2-1 victor over the Gunners’ whose sole reply came from Cesc Fabregas.”

“Chelsea are 29/20 to win in 90 minutes with Arsenal 19/10 and the draw at 5/2. A 2-1 success for the champions is 19/2 and that looks the value with Diego Costa recommended at 6/4 to find the back of the net during the 90 minutes.”

So, Michael Owen’s Commentary is Something We Definitely Didn’t Miss in the Off-Season

Michael Owen is coming in for some serious heat for his commentary performance during Arsenal against Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Despite being the big – sort of – return of English football after the off-season, BT Sport decided to go for arguably the most boring commentator since Phil Neville at last summer’s World Cup to call the action.

And that’s not went down well with fans.

The former Liverpool hero is already trending worldwide on Twitter as supporters lay into his commentary style.

But if any of the decision makers at BT Sport see the abuse, they’ll be thinking about a half-time sub for Owen.

Arsenal currently lead Chelsea 1-0 thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s beautiful opening goal against their London rivals.

But the big talking point of the first-half is definitely Owen and BT Sports.

Here, we round up some of the funniest Twitter reactions to Michael Owen commentating on the Community Shield:
