You can find out more about our opponents below.

Three facts about Swansea:

  • Swansea were still playing in the fourth tier of English football a decade ago
  • Defender Kyle Bartley was bought from Arsenal last summer
  • Swansea are also in the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup

The Spaniard has lit up the Premier League since arriving from Rayo Vallecano in the summer and has already scored 13 league goals. Clinical in front of goal and excellent in the air, Arsenal's defence will have to ensure the advanced midfielder is well marshalled if he plays a part on Wednesday evening.
