Wenger drops disappointing duo: Predicted Arsenal line-up to play Swansea

Arsenal Emirates

Here is how we predict Arsenal and Swansea City will line up this week:

To be played on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 at 19:45. Venue: Emirates Stadium, London

Odds: Arsenal 1/3, Draw 4/1, Swansea 9/1

Arsenal welcome Swansea City to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening for their latest Premier League clash, and the Gunners will be desperate to get back to winning ways after suffering back-to-back defeats against Barcelona and Manchester United in the last week.

Arsenal’s defeat at Old Trafford means they are currently five points behind leaders Leicester City and three points below second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with 11 matches remaining.

Swansea have very different concerns as things stand, with the Welsh club 16th in the table and only three points above the relegation zone, so they cannot afford to drop more points with the sides below them showing signs of life.

In early team news, Arsenal are without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere.

Swansea have no such injury problems and have a clean bill of health heading into this one, which is at least a positive as they bid to climb away from relegation danger in the weeks ahead.
