Arsenal will be hosting Swansea at the Emirates Stadium in the last fixture of week 36 in the Premier League.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger spoke about possible returns for Arsenal, when Garry Monk's Swansea travel to north London.

Aaron Ramsey produced a fantastic performance in Arsenal's 3-1 victory over Hull at the KC Stadium. Talking about the possible squad to face Swansea, Wenger said: "From the Hull match we had Ramsey who took a big kick, he is getting slowly better."

Ramsey's inclusion in the Gunners line-up could be vital, with Arsenal looking to secure second place in the Premier League. Wenger also added to his comments about Ramsey by saying "He could be back in training soon."

Danny Welbeck, who has been involved in 14 goals for Arsenal in all competitions, will miss Monday's clash. "Welbeck is doing better but he is still not in training, he has missed now more than a week." Wenger also said.

"There is no major damage but we have to see how it progresses over the next two or three days."

Wenger, however, is confident that Welbeck will feature again this season.

£12m signing Mathieu Debuchy will also be out of Monday's clash. The Frenchman has had an injury hit campaign, with the emerging talent of Hector Bellerin piling even more pressure on Debuchy.

England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta are also out, with Wenger stating he will have a "similar squad" to the team that faced Hull.

Arsenal's next away game is against Manchester United on May 17 and, although it may not have the allure of old, it is still an important fixture. A victory at Old Trafford could put Arsenal 11 points clear of the Red Devils, should United lose at Crystal Palace this weekend.

Arsenal fans: where do you think your club will finish this season? Let us know below!
