Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen is certain Chelsea will be too much for Arsenal when both teams meet at the Emirates on Sunday.
“I was very disappointed with what I saw from Arsenal on Friday,” Owen told BetVictor.
“I know they were missing a few of their first team but Brentford were deserved winners.
“They’ve spent money this summer, but have they improved much from where they were last season? I don’t think so. I’d be surprised if they finished any higher than sixth this season.
“It’s a totally different story at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea are looking formidable.
“They remain such a difficult side to score against and I think Lukaku will be a brilliant signing for them. They finished fourth with Jorginho as their top scorer last season with seven, so imagine what they could do with a prolific striker.
“Anything can happen in derbies, but this London derby looks like a mismatch. I think Chelsea will comfortably win this 2-0 and pile the pressure on Arsenal.”
