Predicted 4-2-3-1 line-up against Swansea on Saturday

The Premier League action finally returns this weekend after yet another international break, with Arsenal welcoming Swansea City to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners will be looking to build on their form prior to the break, which sees them sitting third in the table with 16 points from their first seven matches, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.

As for Swansea, they are struggling at the opposite end of the table after collecting only four points to date, and new manager Bob Bradley has a tough task to get a much needed win in his first game in charge.

In early team news, Arsenal are without Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey, Carl Jenkinson, Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud, while Francis Coquelin is unlikely to recover from a knee injury and Lucas Perez is a minor doubt.
