Confirmed Arsenal team for Swansea clash

The starting teams have been announced for today’s home tie with Swansea City, and there are no shocks from the Arsenal side.

Arsenal come into the match in top form, and will be looking to continue that after the international break. I have not come across a single player who didn’t enjoy at least one win with their respective sides, with Alex Iwobi notching a goal in World Cup qualifying for Nigeria, and Mesut Ozil grabbing an assist for Germany.

We will be confident coming into today’s game after a string of impressive wins, while our opponents have to deal with a string of losses and a change of manager, with Bob Bradley having come in to replace the binned Francisco Guidolin.

Francis Coquelin has been made available to return to action this weekend, while Mesut Ozil has returned to us fully fit despite having to be hauled off for his country. Despite the Frenchman’s availability, we have named an unchanged XI from our recent wins.

Confirmed team:

Bellerin  Mustafi  Koscielny  Monreal
Xhaka    Cazorla
Walcott    Ozil        Iwobi

We should be confident of grabbing all the points against almost anyone on present performances, and today will be no different.

Is this the team you would have picked to secure the three points today?

  21. Onochie says:

    That’s lack of concentration

  22. Ugabooga says:

    No no no, I need this score

  23. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    Start concentrating, long way to go.

    We need to stay sharp and continue attacking and score at least one more.

  24. Arsenal_Girl says:

    More goals for us in second half please
    Or at least maintain the score

    Let’s have a wonderful weekend and week 🙂


  25. gunnerman8701 says:

  26. ras911 says:

    Absolutely beautiful

  27. Juhislihis McLovin says:


  28. Lexynal says:

    The third time I am seeing this AlexOzil combination leading to a goal in 5 matches. Beauty of a goal. Go and ask Watcord, Chelsea and now Swansea.mCOYG!

  29. luvdaguns says:

    what a volley, calm, cool, collected, BAM!

  30. Arsenal_Girl says:

    I’m jumping on the sofa and if I break a leg I will still be happy.

    More goals LOL

  31. Lexynal says:

  32. luvdaguns says:

    mustafi was an amazing buy, its like having two Kos’s

  33. Greg says:

    Awesome goal from the birthday boy mesut ozil

  34. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    Too nervous at the back for my liking! Tidy it up!

  35. mall-gooner says:

    If score remains same for another 10 mins then Wenger should substitute Alexis, He needs rest and Lucas will also get some game time.

  36. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    Come on man, so S*ITTY DEFENDING it hurts to watch. Cech make at least one save!

  37. Ugabooga says:

    Come on Swansea, I can still make money

    1. dee23 says:

      Your betting against your own team? Shit, man if your that hard up, I’ll give you the cash. Arsenal need to win this and win this well.

  38. Ugabooga says:

    Coq for Xhaka please

  39. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    RED for that?! What the hell?!

  40. Twig says:

    That’s a very harsh red card 🙁

  41. Ugabooga says:

    Lol yeah he deserves that tbh

  42. Ugabooga says:

    No be fair that deserves red guys, but that being said ref does seem a bit bias

  43. Onochie says:

    The defence should be everybody’s duty why was barrow allow such time and space on the ball

  44. Tidan2 says:

    He definitely deserved that, cynical mean guaranteed yellow, the fact that it was so late and pretty bad in general on top of that means good chance of red.

    Now we bring in Coq and close out the game properly.

  45. gunnerman8701 says:

    Dismal display by Xhaka! Gave away a goal and a stupid foul. Really hope we hang on to the lead.

  46. luvdaguns says:

    not xhakas best match…

  47. Ugabooga says:

    Xhaka will be on bench now as Coq is back just in time

  48. Onochie says:

    Wenger has started this his stupidity that I hate,why did he remove Iwobi who came back early after the break,he should have removed Xhaka for Le coq its a simple arithmetic

  49. Twig says:

    Cech, shoot and you just score 🙁

    1. Ugabooga says:

      Lol yeah, his good in air but that it. Prefer Ospina

  50. Ugabooga says:

    Come on ref play advantage

  51. Tidan2 says:

    This will be so disappointing if they get a draw when City are tied having missed two penalties and Tottenham held to draw as well (nvm the fact we could be/should be 3 goals up).

  52. tissiam says:

    montreal needs to be replaced by gibbs!!

    1. Tidan2 says:

      I agree, one or two matches just to see if Gibbs can step up because Monreal hasn’t been his usually consistently good self this season so far.

  53. ras911 says:

    Bad game for Xhakha but it happens to everyone. The red card seemed a little harsh though. Should bring in Gibbs to help cover for Monreal, Barrow is causing all sorts of trouble

  54. Ugabooga says:

    Monreal has not been at best

  55. luvdaguns says:

    theo gevinho

    1. luvdaguns says:

      ok, theo forehead, better?

  56. ras911 says:

    ahhhh this is one of those freaking days!!!!!! come on boys!!!

  57. luvdaguns says:

    spuds loosing 1-0, 88″

    1. luvdaguns says:

      now 1-1, efff

      1. Charlie Nick says:

        that was your fault for mentioning it …

  58. luvdaguns says:

    cmon boys, 6 in a row! hold on

  59. luvdaguns says:

    theo forehead gervinho

  60. gunnerman8701 says:

    Should have been a hatrick for Theo. Good game, a few errors but expected as we are playing a very fast attacking game. Loving Sanchez upfront.

  61. RSH says:

    made more complicated than necessary, but 3 points all that matters. Theo can’t complain, wish he grabbed a hattrick, but ah well. Xhaka… always bound to pick up RC’s this season, needs to stop being so reckless. Good thing it didn’t cost us points.

    1. Twig says:

      Xhaka just missed his chance to get ahead of Coquelin there. Remove the 35 yard screamers, Xhaka is no better than Coquelin really.

      1. RSH says:

        his long balls are very welcomed. He created several good chances from them, we’ll miss that. But yes, he really messed up his chance to challenge Coquelin with that.

    2. Break-on-through says:

      Should’ve been yellow. How many times have we heard take one for the team, it wasn’t dangerous or reckless, which you see allot of in this league. It was cynical alright but that’s what taking one for the team is.

      1. RSH says:

        kick was close to the knee tho which makes it more dangerous. If it was just shin, i think it would’ve been yellow. Waiting for replay

  62. Tidan2 says:

    Walcott easily man of the match: two goals, two post shots (one was a sitter) and one sitter at Fabianski. Yeh, yeh, people are going to complain that he missed all these easy chances, but if you get yourself in the position to have that many good chances and come close on most of them you should get the recognition.

    1. RSH says:

      Nobody can really complain, he still scored 2. But will defintely be kicking himself he didn’t put that last one in. Theo renaissance continues tho, who saw this coming?

      1. Lexynal says:

        At least we can see a lot of improvements in Walcot’s performances

  63. Break-on-through says:

    We made it difficult alright, but the points are all that matters, city & spu both drawing makes them even sweeter.

  64. rkw says:

    Agonising stuff … the points are all that matters in this one … no one really at their best today … bellerin probably best for us today … wenger has to teach these players how to press though if he wants to move to the next level …

  65. arsenal_canada says:

    That table though…. xhaka’s red card was defiantly harsh, I thought old john moss was crap today. Great win though, shaky defending but due to the bad finishing of swansey, we made it 🙂 so happy with the result!

  66. HA559 says:

    I told you guys they start showboating when with a 2 goal lead, did it against Chelsea, Basel and today at 3-1.

    Red card was wrong decision but if were to concede a third you can’t say it would’ve been completely because of the ref, because 2 came when it was 11v11.

    Poor management as well, you can clearly see Monreal can’t deal with pacey players

    The mentality still hasn’t changed in this team…well completely.

    I think Bellerin is MOTM Despite Walcott scoring 2. Walcott could’ve got 6, 2 he missed and the other 2 he could’ve easily been onside 1v1 when he was offside.
