Arsenal to win both halves at 9/4 with William Hill

Arsenal travel to Swansea on Tuesday night in a much better place than they were a fortnight ago. They have seemingly recovered from defeat in the FA Cup third round against Nottingham Forest and in the Premier League at Bournemouth by first signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the Alexis Sanchez deal with Manchester United, then beating Crystal Palace and progressing to the Carabao Cup final.

Their next challenge, at the Liberty Stadium, just got a lot harder, though. New Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal has made a real impact in South Wales, and is in the process of turning their whole season around. Seven points from three league games, including a win over Liverpool, has given them real hope of survival after looking completely doomed. Confident and inspired by Mkhitaryan, though, Arsenal should come out on top.

Form

Carvalhal appeared to be an appointment only good for preparing for the Championship when he arrived, but the Portuguese has given something his club did not have before. The win over Liverpool, coupled with a recent victory over Watford, leave them just three points adrift of safety.

The season looked like spiralling out of control for Arsenal after those losses to Forest and Bournemouth, but they have looked more like their old selves more recently. Champions League qualification is still in doubt, but they have an opportunity to win some early silverware by beating Manchester City in the League Cup final next month.

Team News

Swansea have some doubts over Renato Sanches and Tammy Abraham, while Arsenal don’t have any fresh concerns but are likely to give Mkhitaryan a debut.
