The Swans get gunned down

The Gunners legend Henry announced his arrival in England with the winning goal against Leeds, after he came off the bench in the FA Cup. His best years may be behind him but to be honest my pet meerkat is better than Arshavin.

In the press, it was stated that Henry would be used sparingly but he still looks the part and has waltzed into the side as if he has never left. Wenger is in a conundrum, does he play Va va voom with Van Persie or leave him on the bench.

Arsenal are away at Swansea, another team that know how to play good football, have a great chance of staying up and are looking at establishing themselves in the Premier League. The away win is 4/5, the draw is 5/2 and the Swansea home win is 7/2.

Swansea's only league defeat at home was against Man Utd. They only lost 1-0 at the Emirates earlier this season and Arsenal to win by the same scoreline is 6/1. They have also recently held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw and they are 21/10 draw no bet.

You can also get Swansea or the draw at 10/11. Swansea's problem is that they are often ineffective in-front of goal. Brendan Rogers' side have drawn a blank in five of their last ten league matches and Arsenal are 23/20 to keep a clean sheet.

They play an Arsenal side that have created the most goal attempts from counter attacks (21) and also scored the joint-most goals on the break. Over 2.5 goals is 8/11 and Arsenal could be too strong in attack for the Swans.

Four or more Arsenal goals is 9/1 and they will be starting Van Persie irrelevant of whether Henry plays in the match. RVP has scored nineteen goals in his last nineteen Premier League away appearances. He is only 8/11 to score anytime and 3/1 for the first goal but he is arguably the league's in-form striker.

Demba Ba may be the league's sought after striker but he is not in the same class. For the Match Winner, we have enhanced the price of an Arsenal win and RVP to score first from 4/1 to 6/1!

The Gunners have kept just two clean sheets in their last 17 Premier League away games. Both teams to score is 10/11 and with Arsenal playing on the counter attack, Swansea are sure to have a few chances.

Swansea have signed Gylfi Sigurdsson on loan from Hoffenheim. He is a goal-scoring midfielder and a cracking talent. He worked with Rodgers before at Reading and he signed for his German club for £6.5m.

He has been sent to Swansea to get fit because he has had horrendous injury problems this season. He looks a cracking price at 10/1 to open the scoring and he loves shooting from distance. They have also taken McEachran on loan from the West London club Chelsea, he has played some football at the Blues but he needs minutes and experience.
