Former Premier League and La Liga star, Michael Owen has tipped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United to beat Wolves 2-1 in tonight’s FA Cup fixture.
He also predicted Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to defeat Swansea City 3-0 in today’s FA Cup clash.
Owen told BetVictor: “United lost their unbeaten domestic record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the Emirates on Sunday but they had their opportunities – especially in the opening 45 minutes – and I feel they will edge the tie-of-the-round at Molineux.
“Wolves haven’t reached the last four since 1997-98 and I feel they will have to wait at least another year before they reach the semi-final. Michael’s prediction: 1-2.”
On the Swansea vs Man City game, Owen said: “City have scored at least four goals in their three FA Cup ties so far this season and I can’t see the Swans stopping Pep Guardiola’s side who made serene progress into the quarterfinal of the Champions League midweek against a moderate Schalke side.
“The hosts have lost six of their last seven ties against Premier League opposition and I can’t see them creating what would be a massive Cup shock at the Liberty Stadium. Michael’s prediction: 0-3.”
The kick-off time for Wolves vs Man United is 8:55pm, while that of Swansea vs Man City is 6:20pm.
