Wenger Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face Swansea

Arsenal will look to get over their midweek European disappointment when they take on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Here is a predicted team by Gooner Mac:

Goalkeeper: With David Ospina still out with a thigh injury Wojciech Szczesny is under very little pressure in goal so he’ll certainly start again this weekend.

Defence: The defence has rightly come under intense scrutiny this week after our capitulation against Anderlecht but Arsene Wenger has very few options to rotate at the back. Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Debuchy remain out so unless the boss wants to bring Hector Bellerin in at right-back, I think we’ll see the same back-four that started on Tuesday. Let’s hope they perform a lot better this time around.

Midfield: Mikel Arteta has been ruled out with a hamstring injury he picked up in midweek so Mathieu Flamini will come in. Aaron Ramsey was once again disappointing on Tuesday so with Jack Wilshere over his illness, I’d expect him to replace the out-of-form Welshman in midfield.

Attack: Theo Walcott is fit and available but with just 10 minutes of first team football under his best in 10 months I don’t see him starting this weekend. Arsene will look to give him a run-out in the second half meaning Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should continue on the right-wing.

Santi Cazorla is another who seems to be lacking form of late but with Mesut Ozil still injured and Tomas Rosicky and Lukas Podolski seemingly out-of-favour, the Spaniard is likely to keep his place in attack. Alexis Sanchez has excelled in recent weeks after being given a free role behind Danny Welbeck so I’d expect that duo to continue their partnership on Sunday.

Here is how I think Arsene will line-up his team:

What do you think of the team and what line-up would you pick?
