Arsenal vs Swansea City: Prediction
Arsenal are a magical run at the moment after finding themselves unbeaten in the last 9 matches in all competitions, with 7 wins and 2 draws. Interestingly, they haven’t conceded in their last 4 matches despite having a number of defenders injured or unfit.
Swansea are in a miserable position and are on a four match losing streak and win-less in their last six in all competitions. They do have a good record at the Emirates after winning in 2 and drawing 1 of their last three visits. But this could change on Saturday evening as Arsenal looks good for a win and on current form they could win this convincingly.
