Swansea City have been a bogey team for Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

With Leicester City winless in six games, 18th in the league and without a manager this is a huge opportunity for Swansea City to capitalise and record their third win of the season.

Crunch time for Swansea. Paul Clement’s side have lost all three homes games, failed to score in five of their seven league matches this season and registered only 11 shots on target.
