Swansea City’s next Premier League opponents are Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium this Saturday. We take a look at what the Swans can learn from the Gunners’ last matchup against Everton.
Firstly, Swansea will be heading into the fixture with Arsenal in high spirits. Garry Monk’s side finally put their bad run to bed with an extremely hard-fought 2-1 win over Aston Villa last Saturday.
It was by no means a convincing Swans display, but goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Ayew cancelled out Jordan Ayew’s opener to turn the game on its head and seal a much-needed three points for Swansea. The Swans’ win at Villa Park was their first Premier League win in six, moving them up to 12th in the process. As for this weekend’s visitors, Arsene Wenger’s side are on fire at the moment. Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny struck for the Gunners to see off the Toffees 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Arsenal’s win briefly put them top of the table, but Manchester City’s draw with neighbours Manchester United means they go into Saturday’s contest level on points with City at the top.
We dissect the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Roberto Martinez’s side, and see what the Swans can learn from the fixture.
