This game should be the most exciting of the weekend. Both teams play an attacking style of football that is quite attractive.
Arsenal has opened as favourites for this match, but they aren’t resounding short priced favourites.

Mesut Ozil continues to impress for Arsenal and will be expected to star in this game. Olivier Giroud will also heavily feature. The Arsenal striker has scored seven times for Arsenal this year, with four from his last three matches.
Swansea lost their first two EPL matches but have bounced back to be in a respectable position on the competition ladder. They may be without their club captain Ashley Williams due to an ankle injury and there is also doubt over midfielder Pablo Hernandez who is struggling with a hamstring.
Swansea has performed well in previous Premier Leagues against Arsenal, winning two of their four meetings. Swansea move the ball with speed and accuracy. Swansea need to defeat Arsenal to show they are ready to take the next step. The problem for Swansea this year has been their conversions. They have had heaps of possession but haven’t converted it to goals.
If Arsenal win here they will equal their best run of Premier League away wins (eight). Interestingly, both Premier League games between Swansea and Arsenal last season ended as 2-0 away wins.
I am tipping Arsenal to win 2-1. They are on a winning streak with great attack up front. Swansea are doing well but will struggle to beat a top team like Arsenal.

Arsenal has opened as the favourites in H2H betting but they are still better than even money. They are attractive odds given Arsenal’s current standing in the competition and the fact they have won their last four.
