Arsenal vs Swansea City
Arsenal have been in very good form in the Premier League of lateReuters

Arsenal take on Swansea City at the Emirates as they aim to finish in second place in the Premier League this season.

The Gunners have done reasonably well this season as they have managed to progress to the final of the FA Cup and are currently in a very good position to finish as the runners up in the Premier League.

Their current form in the Premier League has especially been very impressive as they have managed to win nine out of their last 10 fixtures.

Although they are currently third in the Premier League, they have a very good chance of overtaking the second-placed Manchester City as they have an extra game in hand.

Although the Gunners were beaten by Swansea City 2-1 at Liberty Stadium earlier this season, this time the North London club are expected to easily win especially considering their current form in the Premier League.

And Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who admits that his side were a "bit careless" at Swansea City in November, insists that they will be looking to put things right, when the Swans come to the Emirates on Monday.

"First of all we were a bit careless in our defensive attitude [at Swansea]," the Frenchman told Arsenal's official website. "Jefferson Montero gave us many problems on the left, Bafetimbi Gomis came on and scored a header for their winner.

"It was a game where we had the chances to score a second goal and didn't finish it off. They had the energy and the resources to put us under pressure in the last 10 minutes, and we lost the game.

"We want to show that we are different now and we have that opportunity. We also want to show that we have learnt from that defeat."

The Swans, meanwhile, will also be hoping to get a positive result against Arsenal as they look to finish the season strongly.

Even after the departure of their highly successful manager, Michael Laudrup, who helped the Swans lift their first major piece of silverware in the form of the Capital One Cup in 2013, they have done decently this season under new boss Garry Monk.

They are currently right on course to make their highest ever finish in the Premier League this season (their previous highest being ninth) as they currently sit comfortably in the eighth place, three points ahead of Stoke City.

However, the Welsh side may not be able to hold on to their current position as they have two tough back-to-back games against Arsenal and Manchester City.

And Swansea boss Monk despite saying that his side have managed to do well at Arsenal in the past, admits that they will be having a tough time against the in-form Gunners on Monday.

"We've done well in the past there," Monk told Swansea City's official website. "We drew 2-2 last season and we beat them there when Michu scored twice (in 2012). Hopefully we can enjoy the same feelings there this time, but it's a tough arena to play."

"They have a really talented squad. The depth of quality they have, especially in attacking areas is fantastic."

"They are one of the power houses of the league, so it will be a tough test but we will enjoy it."

Expected Line-ups:

Arsenal: Ospina; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla, Wilshere, Ozil, Sanchez; Giroud

Swansea City:  Fabianski; Rangel, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor; Cork, Shelvey, Dyer, Sigurdsson, Montero; Gomis
