Swansea City host Arsenal in a Premier League clash at the Liberty Stadium that neither can really afford to lose if they are going to turn around their scrappy starts to the season.

Arsene Wenger’s side will have their mental strength tested after squandering a 3-0 lead against Anderlecht in the Champions League on Wednesday, from which the criticism drew a tetchy response from the Gunners boss. Jack Wilshere was available again after illness, but Wenger opted against bringing him straight back into the side.

Meanwhile, Swansea have won just once in their last six matches and will be keen to avenge the 2-1 defeat they suffered in the corresponding fixture last season. Garry Monk’s men know a win will take them above the Gunners and will be looking to top scorer Wilfired Bony to provide the firepower.

Here are the teams…

Swansea City

Fabianski, Rangel, Bartley, Williams (C), Taylor, Ki, Carroll, Sigurdsson, Emnes, Montero, Bony.
