Arsenal have been struck with a serious injury concerns as Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin have been ruled out for 3 weeks. Manager Arsene Wenger has been handed a selection headache ahead of the match against Swansea with right-wing as his biggest headache.

Ahead of the kick-off at Emirates, we take a look at the Predicted Arsenal Lineup against Swansea with a surprise inclusion of Kieran Gibbs at left-wing and Alexis Sanchez shifting to the right side of midfield. Wenger has huge 2 weeks ahead of him, as he looks to keep Arsenal’s season on track despite the injury concerns.

Defense

Petr Cech will continue in goal with set defense line of Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal and Bellerin. Swansea have a strong attacking line up and Gunners will need to rely on the stability of Koscielny and Mertesacker and the full-back responsibility will be shared by the impressive duo of Monreal and Bellerin.

Midfield

Santi Cazorla will continue to lead Gunners midfield with Francis Coquelin returning to the fray. Duo were missed when Sheffield Wednesday ran away with a 3-0 win in Capital One Cup Round of 26 clash. Coquelin and Cazorla have been essential to everything good Arsenal have done this season and Arsene Wenger must be waiting eagerly to welcome them back to his starting XI.

Forward

This is where I think it will get interesting with either Kieran Gibbs or Alex Iowbi being the replacement in wide areas. For now, I see Gibbs being the left-winger with Alexis shifting to the right hand side and supporting the only fit striker at the club, Olivier Giroud.
