Arsenal confirmed line-up vs Swansea City: Gunners unchanged as Wenger eyes revenge

Posted by

Arsenal welcome Swansea City to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Arsene Wenger keeping the same side that won at Burnley last time out.

Bob Bradley makes his debut on the bench for the visitors, and he’ll be hoping that his new side can replicate their 2-1 win over the Gunners in north London last season which dealt a major blow to their Premier League title aspirations.

However, Wenger’s men are in great form heading into this encounter, as they look for their sixth consecutive win in all competitions and try to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City with a two-point gap between the two clubs ahead of kick-off.

The international break may well prove to be a disruption to Arsenal’s momentum, but with Wenger sticking with the same faces that secured a dramatic late win over Burnley last time out, he’ll be hoping that they can continue to pick up important points.

Continuity and consistency will be key to Arsenal’s push for the Premier League title this season, and with Alexis Sanchez keeping his place up front with the formidable-looking partnership of Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi at the back giving the Gunners a solid foundation to work off, they’ll be hoping that it continues to lead to positive results.

Arsenal starting line-up: Cech, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Cazorla, Iwobi, Ozil, Walcott, Alexis.
