Michael Owen tells Arsenal to quiet Marcus Rashford or lose to Man United

Michael Owen believes if Arsenal could silence Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford they can walk out of Old Trafford with a draw.

Man United will host the Gunners on Sunday in the Premier League and will only think about maintaining their unbeaten run.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions but are looking for their first home win in the Premier League this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have played three league matches without a win [L2 D1] but they will look to build from their 5-0 home Champions League win over RB Leipzig when they take on Mikel Arteta’s men.

Marcus Rashford, who is arguably most on form Manchester United player this season, came off the bench to score a hat-trick against the Bundesliga side.

And Owen believes the England international, who turns 23 today, could be the danger man for the Red Devils and urged Arsenal to try and stop the goalscoring forward.

‘Manchester United take on Arsenal in a match that always draws plenty of media attention prior to kick off,’ Michael Owen said in his BetVictor column.

‘Arsenal’s early season rise has been dampened slightly with recent results, so they’ll be looking at this as the perfect platform to get going again.

‘United themselves have picked up. Their outstanding European results must have raised the confidence levels at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford is really starting to fire and he could be United’s danger man here.

‘However, I think if Arsenal can keep him quiet, they could come away with a point.’
