After last weekends narrow 2-1 FA Cup victory away at Preston, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are welcomed back to the fold as we get back to Premier League business.
Both were missing last weekend, rested for the game, with Ozil suffering with ‘illness’, but he’s now recovered and ready to terrorise Swansea this weekend.
Meanwhile Theo Walcott is out of the game, along with next weekend where we face Burnley at home, Arsene Wenger said he wasn’t overly concerned.
Petr Cech comes back in, Laurent Koscielny returns, along with the aforementioned two superstars, Hector Bellerin is still out along with Francis Coquelin who will also miss the game, both are ‘not far’ from a comeback according to Wenger.
Le Boss is left with a headache up front now, with Lucas Perez in top form, Sanchez back and Olivier Giroud, who captained the side against Preston also scoring when he wants, while Danny Welbeck will also be pushing for a start now he’s back from his injury.
Should be a good game, but also one we have struggled at in the past, lets hope we can get back to our purring best, now we have our superstars back in the squad.
ArsenalShorts prediction: 1-3 to the Arsenal, we’ll go 1-0 down, then comeback to take all three points.
