Arsenal return to Premier League action for Saturday’s visit of Swansea City.

Arsene Wenger has a number of injury concerns ahead of the match at the Emirates.

Danny Welbeck remains absent as he continues to recover from a hamstring strain, meanwhile Shkodran Mustafi (thigh) and Santi Cazorla (achilles) are both out.

Calum Chambers and David Ospina are also not set to return.

Despite the defeat to Watford nearly a fortnight ago, Arsenal are looking to continue their good form. Arsene Wenger’s side have lost just one of their last 10 games (winning 8).


Arsenal did the double over Swansea last season, including a 4-0 thrashing in Wales. The 3-2 win at the Emirates proved more challenging however, particularly after Granit Xhaka was given his marching orders for violent conduct.

Over the years, the Swans have established themselves a bit of a bogey team for the Gunners. They’ve taken five wins from 12 meetings.

Arsene Wenger is expected to revert back to his Premier League side following the club’s 2-1 Carabao Cup victory over Norwich City in midweek.
Mesut Ozil took the man of the match award against Everton last week – Arsenal fans will be hoping the German sends another message to his critics on the field.
Arsenal XI: Cech; Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Kolasinac, Bellerin; Ramsey, Xhaka; Alexis, Ozil, Lacazette.


Wenger is expected to recall the big guns. Arsenal fans have dubbed their triumvirate strike-force “AOL”, after Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette all helped themselves to a goal in the 5-2 victory over Everton.

Gooners can look forward to the trio putting on a masterclass on Saturday.

Prediction: 3-0

    We should have smashed Everton 7/8-1 like how City dispatched Stoke 7-1. Far too often we are not ruthless enough when we get in a position where we metaphorically have our foot on our opponents necks but won’t stamp down for the kill without mercy. Man Utd 8 Arsenal 2, no quarter asked, no quarter given. We have been smashed by 4 or 5 a number of times in recent years and it’s time we started to return the favour starting with Swansea who are there for the taking. I certainly won’t be happy if we score less than 5.
