Arsenal fans will be hoping for another three Premier League points today as the Gunners continue to claw themselves back after a poor start to the current campaign and the recent setback at Watford. With a struggling Swansea City side the visitors to the Emirates Stadium today and on the back of a convincing attacking performance at Everton, I think it is safe to say that nothing else will do.
It was being reported that Arsene Wenger had been handed a defensive boost as well after Shkodran Mustafi returned to full training, but the German has not even made the bench today so Per Mertesacker starts again in an unchanged back line.
Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal
Bellerin, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Ramsey
Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette
Subs: Macey, Wilshere, Giroud, Walcott, Holding, Iwobi, Coquelin.
In fact the whole starting line-up is the same as the one that we saw at Goodison Park last week and hopefully it will produce the same sort of thing, both in performance terms but more importantly in the result as we got from the Gunners last weekend.
We could do without conceding an opening goal this time, though, but in the likes of Wilshere, Walcott, Iwobi and Giroud the manager does have good options to turn to on the subs bench if he needs them.
