Swansea vs Arsenal live streaming today for free. Arsenal travels to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea in the third round of the FA Cup hoping to get the better of Swansea.
The Gunners suffered defeats in two of their meetings in 2012 that is when they went down 2-0 at the Emirates in December and 3-2 at the Liberty Stadium last January. and will be hoping that it will be different in the FA Cup.
Interestingly, this will be the fourth FA Cup tie between Swansea and Arsenal, but the first since 1968. Swansea won the first meeting between the sides in 1926 but have since lost the last two clashes.
Swansea may have their focus on the Capital One Cup Semi-final with Chelsea on Wednesday and that could be affect their team selection for this match. Michu (ankle) and Angel Rangel (calf) both shook off injury problems to play the full 90 minutes on New Year’s Day but could be rested ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Chelsea.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not intend to lose any sleep over how to best tackle the January transfer window and will instead focus on getting the best out of the players he already has.
The Gunners are expected to make some moves to bolster the squad this month, with a #10million bid for Atletico Madrid striker Adrian Lopez said to be on the table while fringe players like Johan Djourou, Sebastien Squillaci and Morocco forward Marouane Chamakh, a target for West Ham, will also be offloaded.
However, as he prepares to take his team to Wales, the Arsenal manager wants concentration to remain on the side producing the required performance rather than thinking about how to boost any perceived deficiencies.
Swansea are an impressive 9th in the EPL this year and are continuing their great form from last year under new manager Michael Laudrup. They look assured of another year of Premiership survival which was their main goal and they can look to building on the quality of the squad for the future. Signings such as Michu and Ki Sung-Yong have shown they have a real eye for talent. Arsenal are 6th in the Premiership and are as usual in the fight for the Champions League places. They have not had their best season so far but would be only 2 points off 3rd place if they win their game in hand and they have qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League, albeit against Bayern Munich.
Swansea will have a fully fit squad to call on for the FA Cup clash against Arsenal except for Neil Taylor (fractured ankle), who will be out until at least May for the hosts.
Danny Graham is in line to continue up front after two goals in his last two Premier League games, despite hinting at the need for showdown talks with boss Michael Laudrup over his future at the club.
Lukasz Fabianski (ankle) should miss the game at the Liberty Stadium, but will be fit enough for the Premier League game against Manchester City next Sunday.
Both Abou Diaby (thigh) and Andre Santos (abdominal) have no set return date from injury for the Gunners.
Vito Mannone and Emmanuel Frimpong are both ill, and could miss the game for the visitors.
Marouane Chamakh may also be out of contention as he nears a January transfer to West Ham, while Carl Jenkinson could replace Bacary Sagna after the French full-back’s poor performance against Southampton.
Everyone else is healthy, though, and Arsene Wenger should look at this match as an opportunity to rotate one or two key players around. Tomas Rosicky should start in place of Santi Cazorla , the latter basically looking like a bit like the guy at the end of that Ironman Triathlon whose body just shut down completely in the last mile. Laurent Koscielny will probably return to the bench as Per Mertesacker is no longer yakking everywhere. Francis Coquelin could slot into the midfield in place of Mikel Arteta , too; Arteta has played every single minute of Premier League football this year and most of the Champions League as well, and deserves a break. It’s tough, however, because this game is tremendously important, and Arteta is as well.
