The Swans have been much improved under new boss Carlos Carvalhal, and he will be hoping to ruin Henrikh Mkhitaryan's debut for his new club. The attacker is expected to get his first taste of action for the Gunners having joined in a swap deal from Manchester United.
Arsene Wenger will be looking for a good performance from his new signing, but more importantly would like to trim the gap between Arsenal and the top four.

Arsenal will be without long-term injury absentee Santi Cazorla, while Danny Welbeck is still sidelined due to a muscle problem.
Olivier Giroud is not expected to play, in part because of a hamstring strain, but also due to the fact that he could leave the club before the transfer window closes.
Alexis Sanchez moved to Manchester United last week but his replacement Mkhitaryan could simply replace him in the starting XI at Swansea.
Potential Arsenal starting XI: Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Elneny, Xhaka, Wilshere, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Lacazette.
BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Visitors Arsenal are 1/2 favourites by dabblebet. Swansea, meanwhile, are priced at 6/1 and a draw is available at 10/3.
Mkhitaryan's debut will likely be the big draw for Arsenal supporters eager to get a closer look at their new signing. The Gunners lost the attacking talent of Sanchez to Manchester United, so will be hoping that the Armenian can make an immediate impact.
Swansea will hope to cause a second successive Premier League upset, having beaten Liverpool 1-0 in their last home game. They played Notts County in the FA Cup at the weekend, but a much-changed side could only get a 1-1 draw at the League Two club.
Swans boss Carvalhal has impressed in press conferences since his arrival, and has already guided the team to victories over Watford, Wolves and the Reds. Despite improved form under their new manager, the Swans remain rooted to the bottom of the table, but a win over Arsenal could be enough to take them out of the drop zone.
