There is quite a bit riding on tonight´s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Swansea City, for both of the clubs involved. The Gunners need to keep winning to make sure that we finish the season higher than our usual fourth place and thereby build confidence and avoid two extra games at the start of next season.
The Swans, meanwhile, have already beaten their record EPL points tally but they still need to keep going in order to get into the Europa League tournament again, which they got a taste of after winning the league cup under Michael Laudrup.
So we can expe4ct a good and well contested game tonight, with both teams in good recent form, although Arsenal´s record is the better. We also have the small matter of getting some revenge on the Welsh for beating us earlier in the season.
The winger Montero was the main man in that game but he will hopefully find things much harder against Hector Bellerin than he did against Chambers. They will have Gomis available again to give our defenders a problem and they are a good technical team but as long as Arsenal are on our toes; even with a few injury problems like Ramsey, Welbeck, Arteta, Debuchy and the Oz, then we should be too strong for them.
So I am going for a 3-1 win to Arsenal.
