Match Preview
Swansea welcome Arsenal to Wales and the Liberty Stadium in this midweek round of the Premier League (PL).
Historically, Swansea have caused Arsenal a lot of trouble. Since ‘11 the two teams have clashed 15 times and the head to head count is eight wins for Arsenal, five wins for Swansea, while two games were drawn. However, in recent games the Gunners have three straight wins.
Both teams come into this round off of good wins in the last PL round. Arsenal hammered Crystal Palace 4-1 at home with a devastatingly good opening from the Gunners. By the 22nd minute the score was 4-0!
Swansea boosted their survival hopes with an impressive 1-0 win home against a Liverpool side unbeaten in the last 18 games in all competitions (and five straight wins!).
Though the last two games have seen the Gunners return to form (they secured a spot at Wembley for the Carabao Cup final with a 2-1 second leg win over Chelsea), Arsene Wenger is not taking the task at hand lightly, saying: “Liverpool’s defeat to Swansea City will act as a ‘good warning’ to us ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Liberty Stadium.”
Players to watch: After a fine start to the season in terms of goals scored, Arsenal’s top scorer Alexandre Lacazette ended an eight-game PL dry spell with one goal in the 4-1 win against Palace.
Swans’ top scorer Jordan Ayew has scored two goals in the last three games and will pose the main threat to Arsenal, along with Wilfred Bony who has scored three goals in his last five Swansea starts.
Stat attack: Swansea are the lowest scoring side in the PL, netting only 15 times in 24 matches (0.63 on average). Arsenal, on the other hand, have seen over 3.5 goals in 42% of their games this season.
The last five H2H matches have seen 18 goals (3.6 per match).
