Arsenal and Swansea face off this Saturday in what should be an intriguing battle of teams with similar styles.
Only one point separates these sides in the Barclays Premier League table, and Swansea could overtake the Gunners with a win.
Both sides have eerily similar records in terms of wins, draws as well as losses, and there's also some similarity to their goals scored and goals conceded statistics.
Both these teams have new personnel but given their preference for attacking play these teams should provide an entertaining match.
Arsenal Team News
With that result the Gunners have now won one, drawn three and lost one of their last five Premier League games.
That record will have to improve with the upcoming hectic Christmas schedule and a home game gives the Gunners a slight advantage this weekend.
The return of Kieran Gibbs against the Toffees will ensure that blow is not entirely disastrous.
Swansea Team News
The Welsh side looks to be regaining some of their early season form and now has two wins and three draws in their last five games.
The Christmas schedule will provide two tough games for Swansea when they play Tottenham and Manchester United and an away point at the Emirates would be helpful.
Swansea's Spanish star Michu hit his second goal in three games after seemingly a slight poor run following his fantastic start to life in England.
Swansea has only picked up seven points from a possible 18 in away games so far.
Arsenal Expected Lineup - (4-2-3-1)
Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Walcott, Cazorla, Podolski; Giroud
Swansea Expected Lineup - (4-2-3-1)
Tremmel; Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies; Britton, Ki; Hernandez, De Guzman, Routledge; Michu
