Arsenal have a 100% record at home in the Premier League this season and have also won their last nine home matches in this division – this record goes back to the 2016/17 campaign.

The Gunners have scored 17 goals in the Premier League this season - an average of 1.88 goals per game, while they have conceded 12 at the other end - an average of 1.33 goals against per game.

Arsenal have the second highest average possession in the Premier League this season with 59%.

They also have the second best disciplinary record in the Premier League with just nine bookings to their name.

Granit Xhaka has provided the most Premier League assists for Arsenal this season with three to his name.

Mesut Ozil got his first goal and assist of the season last weekend in Arsenal’s 5-2 win over Everton, a win that saw five different goalscorers on the scoresheet for the Gunners.

Paul Clement’s men have only scored six goals this season - an average of 0.67 goals per game. At the other end they have conceded 10 - an average of 1.1 goals against per game.

Tammy Abraham is Swansea’s top scorer this season with four league goals. He is the only player to have scored more than once for the Swans and has a minutes-to-goal ratio of 180 minutes.

Since the start of 2015/16, Swansea have scored 11 own goals, more than twice as many as any other side.

Swansea have the best pass completion rate of all the teams in the bottom half of the Premier League – 78.2%.

Jordan Ayew has been directly involved in more Premier League goals than any other current Swansea player since his debut in the competition in February 2017 (seven - 2 goals, five assists)

Ayew is also one of four Swansea players that have played every minute of the Premier League season so far. He along with Alfie Mawson, Federico Fernandez and former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski are ever-presents.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time these two sides met at the Emirates there would be a five-goal thriller between Arsenal and Swansea. It was Bob Bradley’s first game in charge of what was a forgettable reign and unfortunately for him that afternoon it would be 10-man Arsenal who would earn all three points.
