Swansea City have shown a fight in the relegation battle in the recent weeks, and the credit must go to new manager Carlos Carvalhal.
Since his appointment in the last week of December, the Welsh side have lost only one of their seven games in all competitions. Last weekend, they pulled off a shocking surprise as they defeated Liverpool 1-0 at Liberty Stadium. However, the Swans still find themselves in the bottom spot with 20 points – three points behind the safety line.
The Swans are in desperate need of points, and they will prove to be tough opponents for the Gunners – who have been terrible on the road this season. However, the Gunners will have an added advantage as they were not involved in action during this weekend while Swansea struggled for a 1-1 FA Cup draw with League Two side Notts County.
The North London side are yet to win an away game this season, but they did secure an important result last week as they defeated Chelsea in League Cup semi-finals. In their last league fixture, they claimed a comprehensive 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Arsenal also remain desperate for points in their hunt for the fourth spot. As things stand, they are placed sixth in the table with 42 points – five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
However, we must state again that away points have been a luxury for the Gunners this season, and in their last away game they lost 1-2 to Bournemouth.
Earlier this season, at Liberty Stadium, the Gunners claimed a 2-1 win over their opponents.
