Arsenal will be looking to put three more points on the board when they host Swansea City at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The Gunners are currently on a three-game winning run in all competitions, and at home, they are yet to drop points this season. In their last fixture, the North London side produced arguably their best performance of the season as they demolished Everton 5-2 resulting in the sacking of Ronald Koeman. Currently, the Gunners are fifth in the table with 16 points, and a win on Saturday could see them creep into the top four.
The trio of Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez worked really against the Toffees, and all three of them should start against the Swans.
Meanwhile, the visitors have struggled to put points on the board up until now. Coming into the game, they have managed to just one of their last six league games and currently sit 15th in the table. Only a better goal difference separates them from the bottom three, and a heavy defeat at Emirates could force them into the relegation zone.
Swansea’s only wins this season have come against Crystal Palace and Huddersfield respectively, and in their last league game, they suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City.
Last season, the Gunners completed the double over their opponents and won the corresponding fixture 3-2.
