The Gunners are boosted by the return of several first team stars for the Premier League match against Swansea on Saturday afternoon

Arsenal welcome back Mesut Ozil for the match against Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.

The German international has been absent for the Gunners previous two games after suffering a bout of flu, but is one of several key returnees for the Premier League clash at the Liberty Stadium.

Petr Cech and Alexis Sanchez are also handed starts after being rested for the FA Cup victory over Preston last weekend, while Alex Iwobi plays ahead of the in-form Lucas Perez in attack.

A victory would take Arsene Wenger's side five points behind Chelsea before the Blues play Leicester City in the late kick-off.
