Arsenal have certainly hit the ground running lately, in domestic competition at least, with a recent run of inspirational form coming since the desperate 2-2 home draw with Hull.
Arsene Wenger will also be boosted by the fact that Theo Walcott has finally made his long-anticipated return from his troublesome injury that he picked up in an FA Cup tie with huge rivals Spurs all the way back in January.
Jack Wilshere has also overcome an illness so will be ready to make his return to the Emirates however Mikel Arteta, who has just returned from injury, will face another spell on the sidelines with a hamstring casualty that he picked up in Arsenal's criminal 3-3 draw with Anderlecht in midweek.
On the topic of short returns, Jonjo Shelvey who came back from a suspension to face Everton, will have to face yet another week out after picking up a double yellow at Goodison Park last week.
Garry Monk, who has recently shown a little more respect and mercy towards referees after a huge burst of harsh comments towards officials, has been given higher spirits ahead of the visit from the Gunners with Dwight Tiendalli and Jordi Amat available for selection to bolster the Swans' improving defence.

- Gary Monk to meet with Mike Riley over Premier League referees
There should be no need to worry for the home side should they fall 3-0 behind in this game as the nation watched in disbelief after the Gunners somehow threw away their lead to draw 3-3.
But they should still be wary of their talismanic striker, Alexis Sanchez who now has five goals in his previous three competitive games.
The Swans sit not too far below their opponents for the weekend as only two points separate the two sides, and victory for Monk's men on Sunday can see them fly up into the Champions League spaces.
Wilfried Bony will be aware of Arsenal's issues concerning their back line so he will be in the correct gear take advantage. The Ivorian has proved he likes to score at the Liberty Stadium this season with three goals in the last two home fixtures.
The home side will certainly be on the lookout to cause a slip up against the visitors and will be eager to build on their best start to any Premier League campaign after picking up 15 points from 10 games.
