Arsenal travel to Wales to take on Swansea in tonight’s Premier League match, where all eyes will be on Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Armenian international is set to make his Gunners debut for his new side following his switch from Manchester United, and he will be keen not to be on the end of a shock defeat to bottom of the league Swansea.
The Welsh side have enjoyed an upturn in form since changing manager, and are currently unbeaten in their last five outings in all competitions, and even pulled off a deserved 1-0 victory over Liverpool only last week.
Arsenal on the other hand have won their last two matches, but were previously on a run of five games without a win, but are believed to be full of confidence after their win over Premier League champions Chelsea in the League Cup, which booked themselves a spot in the Carabao Cup final.
The home side will be without the on-loan midfielder Renato Sanches for the match-up, although he has hardly set the Premier League alight since arriving from Bayern Munich, while our team will be boosted by the return of Olivier Giroud.

This team should have more than enough ability to put our rivals to the sword, but we will have to be careful not to make the same mistakes that Liverpool did and play too aggressively in attack, and should plan to play much more meticulously as we seek out the three points.
I’m predicting a 3-1 win for our boys today, with Lacazette getting on the scoresheet, and I would love for Mkhi to get a confidence-boosting goal on his debut also.
What are your predictions for the potential banana skin? Do we need to respect the Swans or should we just go for it?
