It’s a big game for…

Bob Bradley: Who else but Swansea’s new manager? The former United States and Egypt national team head coach has finally been handed a chance to impress in one of European football’s top leagues.

His reputation for robust, organised defences will be put to the test by Arsenal’s attack.

Best stat…

0.8: The average number of points Arsenal have taken from home matches against Swansea in the Premier League.

Remember when…

Michu scored twice late on at the Emirates to seal a 2-0 win for Swansea in December 2012.

Cue plenty of Arsenal supporters demanding that Arsene Wenger sign the Spaniard. File that one under ‘bullet, dodged’.

Player to watch…

Theo Walcott: Many are glad to see the back of the international break, but most probably enjoyed it more than the 27-year-old winger.

Two dour displays for England against Malta and Slovenia have interrupted his excellent early-season form and it’s now up to him to rediscover his scoring touch.
