The big question for Arsenal fans ahead of this Premier League clash with our recent bogey team Swansea City was how Arsene Wenger and the players would deal with the injury problems that have suddenly left the Gunners looking very stretched, especially going forwards.
The boss has gone for Joel Campbell in the right forward position and hopefully the young Costa Rican striker will use this chance to show what he can do, as he does regularly for his national team. With Giroud, Alexis, Ozil and Cazorla all in good form and with the ability to hurt any team, Campbell should have chances to prove that he can be a Premier League star.
He will have to be on the ball defensively as well and he and Hector Bellerin have a big jon on their hands to keep the Swansea winger Montero quiet. Remember how many problems he caused Calum Chambers down that flank last season.
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Campbell, Ozil, Sanchez
Subs: Debuchy, Gibbs, Gabriel, Flamini, Chambers, Iwobi, Macey.
THere is not a great deal of attacking threat sitting on the Arsenal bench so we could really do with the starting line up starting well and taking this game away from the home team before it starts to get near the end. And of course it goes without saying that we really do not want to see any more Gunners picking up an injury.
