Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between Swansea City and Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City host Arsenal on Saturday evening hoping to condemn the Gunners to their first away defeat of the season.

Arsenal have been in excellent form on the road, but Swansea enter the fixture on the back of three games unbeaten in the Premier League.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup fielded a weakened lineup against Birmingham City during midweek, but the Dane is likely to recall the majority of his squad that were rested for the Capital One Cup encounter.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is expected to use the majority of the team that recorded a 3-1 victory over Stoke City last weekend.

However, the Frenchman is unlikely to risk youngster Serge Gnabry for the third time in the space of a week, with Nacho Monreal potentially being included in midfield.
