Arsenal vs. Swansea: Preview and TV schedule

The Gunners have little time to sulk after their thorough beating from Chelsea over the weekend as Swansea comes to the Emirates on Tuesday

Sometimes the best medicine for a bad loss is getting right back out on the field and playing another game. Arsenal will hope that classic sports cliché is true as they prepare to welcome Swansea City to the Emirates, just three days after their brutal 6-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger cotninues to battle against injuries with central defender Laurent Koscielny the latest player to end up on the sidelines. On the bright side, neither Keiran Gibbs or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out after a case of mistaken identity saw Gibbs wrongly sent off on Saturday.

Garry Monk and Swansea are on the lookout for a few more points to ensure their survival for next season. The Swans are currently in 15th, four points ahead of Sunderland in the first relegation spot. It's been a tough and disappointing season for Swansea, but a win over Arsenal would be a nice pick me up.

Arsenal injuries and suspensions

Out: Laurent Koscielny (calf), Abou Diaby (knee), Theo Walcott (knee), Mesut Özil (hamstring), Aaron Ramsey (thigh), Jack Wilshire (foot).
