Arsenal play host to Swansea at the Emirates Stadium this weekend in Premier League matchweek 10.
The Gunners come into the match in top form, having won nine of our last 11 in all competitions, our rivals meanwhile have mixed form to boast. The Swans come into the match on the back of four losses from their last five in all competitions, but at the same time, they have only conceded one Premier League goal away from home this term, including 0-0 draws at Southampton and Tottenham.
Danny Welbeck and Shkodran Mustafi are the only notable absentees for us this weekend, with David Ospina and Santi Cazorla also currently ruled out. We should have plenty of options to get the better of our rivals, but they will likely be set up to defend their hearts out.
Koscielny Mertesacker Monreal
Bellerin Xhaka Ramsey Kolasinac
As much as I think Xhaka’s first-team place is in question, I think Wenger will give him this outing, although I believe Elneny deserves a run in midfield. Giroud is also in with a shout, but Lacazette is keeping him out of the side, and he certainly looks like the long-term choice for the role.
I think we will be able to break down the Swans despite their impressive defensive displays away from home this season, and I’ll go with a comfortable 3-0 win. Once we score the opening goal, our opponents will have to open up in search of a goal, which will only increase the likelihood that we will add our tally.
What score do you expect in today’s 3PM kick-off? Are we confident of cracking their organised defence? Who is your pick for the goals (if any)?
