Gary Monk’s Swansea have been impressive this season so far and are just a point away from the top half of the table. They came back from a goal down at Villa park to snatch all three points. But in the last two games against Stoke and Tottenham have yielded just a point.
This Saturday, they will host an Arsenal side that are fresh from a 3-0 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday in the league cup. The Swansea City vs Arsenal match will be played on Saturday the 31st of October at the Liberty Stadium.
Arsenal will miss the services of three important players namely, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. While Ramsey was injured last week against Bayern Munich and Theo Walcott and Chamberlain recieved the jolt this midweek against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup.
Arsene Wenger is likely to field debutante Joel Campbell in the left flank.
Here is the Predicted lineup of Arsenal against Swansea City:
Petr Cech most definitely will start under the bar. The former Chelsea man is in a tantalizing form and has been extremely dependable for Arsene Wenger. The Gunners will once again look up to this talisman to protect their goal.
Arsene Wenger will likely keep his backline unchanged as they are unbeaten since last 4 Premier League games. Hector Bellerin will start in the right back position. Per Mertesacker will be partenered by Laurent Koscielny in the center back position and Nacho Monreal in the left back position.
Santi Cazorla will partner Francis Coquelin in the central midifeld. The surprise element comes in the attacking midfield position. Alexis sanchez and Mesut Ozil will be there upfront but the problem lies in the left flank. Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both injured and because Arsenal lack a proper central midfielder Cazorla cannot be promoted upfront. Thus, Wenger might field 23-year-old attacker Joel Campbell. It will be a Premier League debut for the Costa Rican.
Olivier Giroud start upfront in the absence of Theo Walcott.
