Sports Mole looks ahead to tomorrow night's Premier League encounter between Arsenal and Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium.

The Emirates Stadium could well be a very subdued place tomorrow night when Swansea City make the trip to North London.

After all, following heavy defeats to title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool earlier in the season, Arsenal slumped to a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday, a result that has all but ended their chances of winning the Premier League title for the first time since 2004.

Now the Gunners' main focus will be on securing a finish within the top four, with rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who are fifth, six points behind.

Following that hammering by Chelsea, Arsene Wenger has been tipped to make alterations to his starting lineup. Reports have suggested that goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could be dropped, while Laurent Koscielny will be sidelined by an ankle complaint.

Elsewhere, midfielders Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey will all be absent through injuries, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to be suspended following the mix-up that saw Kieran Gibbs wrongly dismissed against the Blues.

As for Swansea, after three months out with an ankle injury, Spanish attacker Michu could start for the Welsh side alongside leading goalscorer Wilfried Bony.

The Swans have won two of their five trips to Arsenal, including last year's 2-0 win when Michu scored two late goals.
