Arsenal vs Swansea City at the Emirates is a Premier League match that should not hold too many problems for the home side. However, this particular fixture hasn't been too kind to Arsenal in the recent past, and that will need to change if Arsene Wenger's side are to keep their solid winning run chugging along on that happy track.

Of the last four matches that Arsenal have faced Swansea at home, they have lost three and drawn one. So, that is one point from a possible 12, and while the Welsh side have had some really good sides since their promotion to the Premier League, that is a record that is hard to understand.

The confirmed lineups for the match

After all, Swansea, a team that like to play football the Arsenal way, is a team that Wenger's side should be comfortably beating. Because every time Arsenal come up against a side, who try to outpass them and are not quite up to their level, they end up beating comfortably.

Yet, for some reason, Swansea have always had their number, particularly in matches at Arsenal's home stadium – the Emirates.

Last season, with Arsenal in desperate need of a win after a pathetic performance against Manchester United, Swansea as good as ended any title hopes the club had with another victory, coming from behind to take all three points. Since that scathing loss, though, Arsenal have only lost one of their next 17 Premier League matches, and while that is scant consolation for missing out on another title opportunity, it is to that form that Wenger's team need to look to , if they are to come up trumps on Saturday.

While there is not as much at stake this time, considering this is still such an early part of the season, Wenger will know this is one of the many small tests that his players need to pass if they are to make a sustained challenge for the title.

"We have to continue to get to the top level," Wenger said. "We have to create a positive environment and to do that we have to perform. The rest we have to ignore. Let's focus on the way we perform and the way we play.

"You focus on what is important and what can help you. The way the team plays and what is important and accept the assessment of people around you."

Swansea have not had the greatest of starts to their Premier League campaign, with Francesco Guidolin losing his job as the manager after picking up just one win from seven games. The American Bob Bradley has been given the task of turning Swansea's fortunes around and what remains to be seen is if that new-manager-spin will work in the Welsh club's favour on Saturday.
