Let's get this out of the way early: Arsenal have had recent struggles at Swansea. This isn't the past, though, and 2015-16 Arsenal go into Swansea second in the league on goal difference and generally playing quite well. The big story tomorrow, of course, is one of injuries - to Ox and Theo, specifically, which will keep them out of the team for well let's just say three weeks because why not.

All this plus Arsenal's "usual" injury list, of course, means that as Wenger said yesterday, the Joel Campbell Experience kicks off tomorrow; I hope he's up to it. Swansea are at pretty much full strength, after Federico Fernandez was cleared of any wrongdoing in his clash with Micah Richards in Swansea's 2-1 win at Villa last weekend, which was their first win in seven matches.

One big thing to remember for tomorrow - the Arsenal you saw Tuesday is not the Arsenal you'll see in Swansea. Tomorrow's Arsenal is the one that's challenging for the league title, and I expect that challenge to continue; Arsenal's on four straight wins right now, and while this will, as always, be a tough matchup, I think Arsenal have enough in the tank to make that five.
