Swansea vs. Arsenal (lineups and discuss)


With the early results, a draw or win for the Gunners on the road would send Arsenal back home top of the table in the Premier League.

A largely unchanged lineup for Arsene Wenger’s teamsheet, as the French manager decided not to deviate from what’s worked for his side early on.

Mesut Ozil will look to extend his assists lead in the Premier League, while young Serge Gnabry gets to start after impressing as a substitute against Stoke City last week.

For Swansea, Jonathan De Guzman is back in the lineup after a spell on the bench by manager Michael Laudrup.  Wilfried Bony is also on the bench to start, as Michu starts as striker up front despite arguably being more comfortable sitting just behind the target man.

Laudrup’s defense is also shaken up by an injury to Ashley Williams, meaning Jordi Amat and Dwight Tiendalli move into the side at the back.


Swansea – Vorm; Amat, Chico, Tiendalli, Davies; Shelvey, Dyer, Routledge, De Guzman, Canas; Michu.

Arsenal – Sczcesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Wilshire, Flamini; Ramsey, Ozil, Gnabry; Giroud.
