Arsenal will be looking keep the pressure on Man City when they take on Swansea at the Emirates on Monday night. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select:

Goalkeeper: David Ospina is firmly in favour under Wenger now so the Colombian is expected to keep his place tomorrow night.

Defence: The boss has confirmed he’s ready to make some changes after naming an unchanged line-up for the last four matches. Kieran Gibbs could therefore get a recall at left-back with Nacho Monreal given a breather.

Otherwise, I’d expect the boss to stick with Per Mertesacker alongside Laurent Koscielny in the middle of defence. Mathieu Debuchy is out with a hamstring injury so Hector Bellerin should keep his place at right-back.

Midfield: Aaron Ramsey is a doubt with a knock that he picked up against Hull last week so I don’t think we’ll take any chances with him. That could see Jack Wilshere make his first start in over five months after a lively cameo last time out from the bench with Santi Cazolra rested.

Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are back in full training but neither will feature tomorrow.

Attack: With Ramsey not starting and Danny Welbeck a fitness doubt, it means Theo Walcott could make a rare start on the right-wing as the attacker has fallen out-of-favour in recent weeks.

The rest of the attack should remain unchanged with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez supporting Olivier Giroud.

Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?
