Arsenal vs. Swansea City
Kickoff: 10 AM EDT
Emirates Stadium, in the heart of the big city

Good morning, everyone. Feel free to comment on all the action below as Arsenal seek out their first win of the year. Here are the lineups:

Arsenal (4-3-3): Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Frimpong, Arteta, Ramsey; Walcott, Arshavin, Van Persie.

Sub sandwiches: Fabianski, Santos, Djourou, Coquelin (apparently), Benayoun, Chamakh, Park (who apparently managed to get his visa sorted out last night and made it to Jolly Ol' in time.)

Swansea: Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Caulker, Rangel, Britton, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Allen, Agustien.

Swan subs (delicious!): Dobbie, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Tremmel, Gower, Richards.

Arsenal sit in 17th with a goal difference of -8, so while a win today of any kind is good, a win by a lot would really, really be good. Whether or not it's possible depends a good deal on how well Arsenal press and how much Swansea sit back. Fingers crossed.
