It looks like Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham are going to win again as they are currently 2-0 up at home to West Brom and the Gunners must follow suit in our away game with Swansea City to keep up with the spuds and keep in touch with the current league leaders Chelsea.
Thankfully for the Arsenal fans our injury situation is looking better and so even though Arsene Wenger is still unable to call on the likes of Walcott, Bellerin and Gibbs, he is able to name a strong Arsenal XI for this must win match.
One of the two big decisions that the Frenchman had to make was up front, where he has rewarded Olivier Giroud for his recent form and goalscoring exploits with another start. That means that our Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez will operate from the left flank with Alex Iwobi on the other side of the front three.
The other selection issue was about who would replace Bellerin at right back and the boss has gone for Gabriel, although the promising young Ashley Maitland-Niles is on the bench alongside Lucas Perez, Danny Welbeck and the Ox. Ozil and Koscielny are back and with Xhaka and Ramsey in the middle there is plenty of quality in our team.
Gabriel, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal
Ozil, Xhaka, Ramsey
Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud
Subs: Ospina, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Reine-Adelaide, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lucas, Welbeck.
Will Arsenal be too strong for the Swans?
