England football star Owen predicted the League Cup between Liverpool and Arsenal in an interview. He expressed optimism that his old club Reds will eliminate the Gunners.
Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 at home in the previous Premier League, and the two teams will compete again in the League Cup.
Irving said: "Liverpool and Arsenal will meet for the second time within a week. In the wonderful game on Monday local time, Liverpool won. I think we will see the same result in the League Cup."
"Arsenal caused a lot of trouble for Liverpool, but the Premier League champions performed too well that night."
"From the starting lineup, it looks like the two teams will use different players than before. Although I think Arsenal can get close to Liverpool in the game, the Red Army will have the upper hand."
