Swansea City makes the trip from Wales to face Arsenal at the Emirates as both sides look to move up the table.
Arsenal Manger Arsene Wenger will attempt to quell the Gunners' fans unrest and return Arsenal to winning ways after drawing their last two Premier League matches against Aston Villa and Everton as calls for Wenger to step aside become louder.
The Gunners currently sit five points back of the top four and Wenger will be certain to have his team focused for this match or risk moving further down the league standings.
To make the task more difficult for the longtime manager is the fact that he will be without right-back Bacary Sagna who is still recovering from a foot injury.
Defender Laurent Koscielny will also be watching his team play from the touch line along with defender Andre Santos and midfielder Abou Diaby who continue to recovery from their respective injuries.
One bright bit of news for the French manager is the availability of both Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski who will add to the Gunners attack.
This will be an interesting contest given that Arsenal have won just three of their last nine Premier League home games, while Swansea have won just two of their last 10 Premier League away games.
For Swansea and manager Michael Laudrup their task will be made a bit more difficult after Pablo Hernandez was ruled out for this match after suffering a thigh injury during the midweek win over West Brom. Jonathan de Guzman is scheduled to replace Hernandez up front and will provide a bit of pace for the Swansea attack.
Swansea goes into the game in good form having lost just one of their last nine league matches and will be full of confidence after their win over West Brom.
Kick-off for the match is at 10:00 a.m. ET and can be watched online here.
