Confirmed: Arsenal v Swansea line-ups

Arsenal Emirates

Here are the confirmed teams for Arsenal against Swansea City this evening.

Arsenal will be looking to improve their chances of finishing second this evening when they take on Swansea and they need to make the most of their home advantage. The Premier League title has gone, but the Gunners can still qualify for the Champions League automatically, which would improve their schedule at the start of next year. It’s a good chance for any players Arsene Wenger gives an opportunity to, to show the boss why they should be featuring on a more consistent basis for the Gunners.

Swansea have consolidated nicely in mid-table and are capable of causing an upset in this game. For that to happen, they’ll need to get on the ball and control possession over the course of the game, preventing Arsenal’s key players from dominating. The Swans head into this game after a 2-0 win over Stoke in their last match and they will be looking to close the gap on Southampton just ahead of them in the table to just one point. Swansea have been in perfect form since they were beaten by Leicester City.
