Swansea v Arsenal Preview, Line-Up and Score Prediction

I think we can all safely say that today’s Arsenal team will bear little relation to the motley crew that began Tuesday’s League Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, and we all know that our excellent First XI are looking for a fifth Premier League win in a row and can surely cope without The Ox and Theo Walcott for a few games.

As Wenger said on Arsenal.com: “It’s a different team,”

“What we want to focus on is the Premier League and I’ve said that many times. The Premier League team did not play on Tuesday night.

“It’s disappointing to lose two players and in a short period of time as well. One was linked with the other one because Theo would not have come on if Oxlade-Chamberlain was not injured. We have to cope with that but I think we have the strength in the squad to cope with it, even if it’s a blow.

“Apart from that we are on a very strong, positive run in the Premier League and we want to continue to grow and develop our position in the league. We know there’s a big game in front of us at Swansea, where it’s always difficult. Everybody likes the challenge to do well.”

Swansea are hardly setting the League alight this year, and the only worrying stat is that their manager Gary Monk has not lost in his three games against Wenger since he took over at the Swans, but if this Gunners team can take apart sides like Man United and Bayern Munich then they should be feeling confident going into this one.

With Walcott injured, the starting XI practically pick themselves. And here it is….


Sanchez Ozil Campbell

Coquelin Cazorla

Monreal Koscielny Mertesacker Bellerin


There are no suprises there, and our only worry is that we pick up another injury to our ever-lengthening list, but let’s not dwell on IFs for now….

Swansea have got a great record against Arsenal, but today is the day their win ratio against us gets reduced. I’m going for a 2-0 Arsenal win in a tight game to keep us in contention at the top.

Onwards and Upwards!

  1. With Bellerin and Campbell helping each other out I can actually see this as an improvement instead of playing The Ox. Perhaps his injury was a blessing in disguise. Walcott will be a big miss tho.

      1. I rest my case. Walcott could find the net if he was trapped in it… Have you seen his scoring record? Giroud is already far ahead of him with half as many starts under his belt

    1. we hear u billy…….. Walcott is very much missed in this team, Like it or not…… He can stretch a defence and really put pressure on giroud!

      1. I mean I do agree with you on that actually. He is a valuable member of the team and we are stronger as a team when he is fit. He will only get better for sure with more minutes I just fee at the moment giroud offers more!

        Good result again and we’re still pushing on. Proud to be a gunner!!

  2. Other than the mert or gab question, agree it’s the most likely line up.

    No mistakes today gooners.

    Another three points will start to put us firmly in the title race.

    Hope Campbell can show us he’s a real option on the right.


  3. The only change I would make is Gabriel for Mertesacker. We need to shut down their crosses into the box so as to neutralise their aerial threat of Ayew and Gomis, so our full backs and wingers will need to be on point. It is going to be a close game but I can see us winning either 2-0 or 2-1 #COYG

  4. I would replace Martesacker with Gabriel and Campbell with Iwobi. Remember Swansea is very dangerous on counter attacks so we need very mobile players!

  5. Dammit pooL!……… Could u guys be anymore annoying?………. Barely 6mins….. Giving this selfish Moanino a reason to smile!

  6. I wonder if we will see Crowley on the bench for this game.
    I don’t think wenger brought him back early from his loan spell just to play for the under 21’s.

  7. Amini, Ofcourse the Arsenals will unfailingly get their 5th BPL consecutive wins this evening at the Liberty Stadium over the Swans of Swansea City AFC. The Arsenals will 1st scattered the Swans to disorganized them and then use them as their range as the fly helter-shelter and then pick their targets among the lots of the flying Swans and downed 3 of them that includes, Swan-Lukasz Fabianski, Swan-Ashley Williams, Swan-Andre Ayew who the Gunners will bring along with them as their spoils as they returned to the Emirates Stadium. And hand them over to the Emirates Stadium’s Chef to use them to prepare for them a delicious diner. My starts: Cech; BellerinDeAbreuKoscielnyMonreal; CazorlaCoquellan; CampbellOzilSanchez; Giroud. My bench: MaceyDebuchyRhino’GibbsFlaminiIwobiKamara. Final score: SCFC 0-3 AFC. Full time 90” +.

    1. I think that’s amini cooper?
      He plans on running half the Swansea players over ?
      He is talking about disorganising them by scattering them as they fly helter- looking -for shelter ?
      Sounds like a plan to me ?
      He must be an A-Team fan .
