Swansea ended their wait for an away win this season as goals from wingmen Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge secured all three points at Aston Villa. The league’ meanest home defence have drawn three of their last four at home, conceding just two goals in the process. Brendan Rodgers’ side have won just one of their 10 matches against top half opposition. Arsenal suffered their fifth away defeat of the season after squandering a one-goal lead in the closing minutes at Fulham in their last league outing. Gunners legend Thierry Henry sealed his return to the club with the winner in their FA Cup triumph over Leeds and should bolster the visitors’ attack which has scored more than one goal just once in their last six matches.

Brendan Rodgers has almost a full squad to select from ahead of the visit of Arsenal. The former Reading manager is set to make changes from the side that beat Barnsley in the FA Cup with the likes of Michel Vorm, Joe Allen, Steven Caulker and Scott Sinclair likely to return to the starting line-up, while Gylfi Sigurdsson could be handed a full debut in midfield, although this may come from the bench. Alan Tate, a long-term absentee, is on the comeback trail after featuring for the reserves in midweek, four months after suffering a broken leg, but is a few weeks away from a return to first-team action.

Arsenal captain Robin van Persie will return to the squad following an extended break. Thierry Henry, on loan from the New York Red Bulls, will again be in contention having come off the bench to score in the FA Cup win over Leeds, while the defender Johan Djourou is available after suspension. Midfield player Tomas Rosicky and centre-back Per Mertesacker are battling to overcome a virus. Strikers Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho are away at the African Nations Cup.


Possible starting XIs:
M Vorm • A Rangel, S Caulker, A Williams, N Taylor • M Gower (or K Agustien), L Britton, J Allen • N Dyer, D Graham, S Sinclair
W Szczesny • J Djourou, P Mertesacker, L Koscielny, I Miquel • A Song • T Walcott, A Ramsey, M Arteta, A Arshavin • R van Persie

• Swansea have kept six clean sheets at home this season and the four teams that have scored against them have managed only one goal each

• Thierry Henry travels to south Wales having scored against all 34 different teams he has ever faced in the Premier League so far

• The hosts have recouped just one point this campaign from games in which they have been trailing, a joint-division low

• Arsenal have had more shots cleared off the line by defenders (nine) than any other top-flight team

Lo Swansea si conferma squadra formidabile e batte l'Arsenal con pieno merito, proponendo un gioco come sempre spumeggiante e creando più occasioni degli avversari. Detto questo...l'Arsenal deve fare il mea culpa per certe distrazioni che sono costate care alla squadra di Wenger.
Pettirosso dal 2007. :tunz: Sempre forza Robins!!!

Certo che le scelte di Wenger oggi sono state parecchio discutibili. :mah:

Djourou, Ramsey, Arshavin (che almeno ora alterna qualche corsetta alle solite passeggiate)....tenendo questi per 90 min si pensa di raggiunge la salvezza (o per caso è stata gia matematicamente raggiunta :mah: )
:no;
