Arsène Wenger insists his side will not take Swansea City lightly when the two teams meet at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Michael Laudrup’s team have started this season brightly, and currently sit just a place and a point behind Arsenal in the Premier League.

Wenger recognises that Swansea pose a significant threat, and is adamant his team will have to be at their best.

“They [Swansea] have bought intelligently and of course that gives them the basis they had last year, and the addition of the players they have brought in,” he told Arsenal Player. “It makes them dangerous.

“Of course [Brendan Rodgers] has made the basis of what the club is today and Michael Laudrup has added some players he knew from Spain who are very good additions.

“They have Michu, Pablo Hernandez, de Guzman, these players and keeping Britton, Rangel and the players at the back. They are a dangerous side throughout, and having a good season. They are a complete unit, very creative, very technical and very mobile.”
