arsenal swansea

Swansea were promoted to the EPL only last year. They played good football and deservedly stayed up. This year too, even after loosing their influential mid-field duo of Scott Sinclair and Joe Allen, they have played well to be at 8th in the table just 1 point below Arsenal. Clearly, it will be a close game. 

We won 1-0 in the same fixture last year and lost 3-2 while playing away to Swansea last season. Gone are the days when newly promoted teams did not stand a chance against the big boys. It is a credit to the lower leagues of English Football. But it is also a cruel fact that Arsenal have become pretty average over years.
There is not a single guaranteed point for Arsenal in the league.

I know I sound a bit pessimistic but Arsenal just have not been good enough this season. They are playing like a mid-table team which is rightly and deservedly reflected by their current position in the league at the moment,7th.There is a need to take some radical measures more than ever. Desperate times are ahead at Arsenal and as they say " Desperate times require desperate measures".
