Team Analysis

Swansea

Paul Clement’s men are still on the hunt to find a way to escape the relegation zone. They are currently position on the 19th spot, tied in terms of point to Sunderland and one point away to land on the safe haven where Crystal Palace is seated.

The Swans have managed to bounce back and win their last match against Crystal Palace, with a 2-0 narrow triumph. Although they started the 2017 weak with a defeat over Hull City on FA Cup, football fans should never set aside the good record that Swansea gets to tally against their contenders on their past meet-up.

A tough fixture waits on the underdog, after this match they will face Liverpool, Southampton, and Manchester City – all of which are the giants of the competition this season.

Home turf advantage might be used by the hosts but misery will still follow them with the poor form that they have shown on their past matches.

Arsenal

Criticism starts to roam for Arsene Wenger side as they continuously slide down to fifth spot which they wouldn’t want as the tournament progresses. The veteran manager will count on Olivier Giroud’s impressive run, as he became the savior of the Gunners on their past rallies. The 30-years old forward is expected to start and add more points not just for his name but for his club as well.

The game is not yet over for Arsenal, they might have dropped some points on their previous matches but with their motivation and hunger comes a great probability for them to dominate against their opponent. They are only one point away from bumping off both Manchester City and Tottenham.

Matches on the English Premier League are unpredictable, and one thing is for sure Arsenal will double their efforts in order to qualify on that prestigious event.

Prediction

Both teams were lately seen struggling on finding the net, as they can keep up a good form. This rally belongs to Arsenal, managing to earn a lot of goals will help them to reach their ambition to enter UEFA Champions League next season.

Arsenal 1.47 (this odd might change)
