Arsenal will apparently have three players return from injury for our Premier League clash against Swansea on Saturday.
The Gunners tend to find facing the Swans a little difficult, despite them managing to lose their ‘Swanselona’ tag in recent seasons.
Oddly enough, last time we faced them back in October, they’d just recruited American coach, Bob Bradley. A man that was sacked just a few months later and we only just managed to win 3-2.
Now, we face them just days after new boss, Paul Clement, has taken charge.
Although currently Swansea sit second from bottom of the table, I’ve no doubt Arsenal can make things difficult for themselves.
What could make the fixture slightly more doable is the fact that Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil and Kieran Gibbs are all apparently set to return.
To be fair, most probably guessed Ozil would come back sooner rather than later considering he had the flu. Bellerin, on the other hand, picked up an injury in training on Friday so if he is back, it’s reassuring to see it’s not serious.
Gibbs, on the other hand, got a knock during Arsenal’s 1-0 win over West Brom on Boxing Day and, since he’s rather injury-prone, most didn’t expect to see him any time soon. If he does return against the Swans, this is very good news as Nacho Monreal hasn’t been on top form this season. Having Gibbs back is certainly a boost, if true.
