On Saturday, Arsenal will make a trip to Wales to go against Swansea. The games between these two teams have always had an element of thrilling goals between them.
Their last meeting at Emirates saw Arsenal win 3- 2 with goals from Theo Walcott, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil while Gilfy Sigurdsson and Gonzalez tried to put Swansea back in the game.
But all this happened as Swansea was under the management of Bob Bradley and the recent recruitment of Paul Clement as manager and former Chelsea legend Claudio Makelele could at least stop the bleeding of the 19th placed Swansea.

On the other hand, Arsenal will leave nothing to chance as they are 5th with 2 points ahead of United. A win by Wenger’s men might move the gunners into a safe haven as they await tomorrow’s game of United against Liverpool.
The numbers are in favor of Arsenal as since their meeting in October Arsenal has scored 44 goals and conceded 21 while Swansea City have scored only 15 and conceded 32.
Arsenal lost only 2 away matches this season (Liverpool and Everton) across all competitions scoring 37 goals and conceding 17. Swansea have won only 2 home matches this season in all competitions loosing 7 and drawing 2 and their goal difference at home stand at -10.
Arsenal have only failed to score in an away match back in August against Leicester and have scored more than 3 goals in 5 away matches.
