Arsenal have won four games on the trot in the Premier League, Arsene Wenger will look to his new signing Mezut Ozil to be the key to picking apart the Swansea defence. Some would say Swanse are a poor man's arsenal as Michael Laudraup's team play an attractive brand of passing football. Arsenal's midfield is no doubt their strength as at the moment there is an embarressment of riches, with Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshire , Arteta and Cazorla. Up front, Arsenal have one of the top strikers in the league in Olivier Giroudm, who has really benefitted from having so many talented creative midfielders on the team. Arsenal have conceded in each of their last four games, with only one cleansheet in the league this year at home to Tottenham. It is safe to say that the defence has struggled a little at times.
Swansea City may have lost midweek in the Carling Cup, but that was their first loss in five. The Swans have won three of their last four, including two of three in the Premier League. Michael Laudraup will look to his top players Michu, Bony and Shelvey to lead by example at home. Shelvey, in particular, was impressive at times against Liverpool, although he did make a couple of errors that were costly for his side. But Shelvey was a decent signing and with Michu and Boney still wokring on creating a partnership, midfield is even more important for the Welsh side.
I like the both teams to score market here. Both teams have strong offences and I think Arsenal's defence in particulr is shaky.Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
