MATCH PREVIEW: Arsenal v Swans

2nd March

Swansea City will be hoping for another positive trip to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday as they face Arsenal in the Premier League (7.45pm).
In the second of back-to-back away games, the Swans face Arsene Wenger's side on the back of Sunday's 2-1 defeat against Tottenham.
However, recent trips to the Emirates have provided much joy for Swansea following just one defeat in their last four visits to Arsenal.
The hosts will also view this as a crucial fixture in their bid to make up ground in the title race, with Wenger's men winning just twice in their last seven league games.

Arsene Wenger: "We want to transform negatives into positives to create more solidarity. We play to fight for the title.
"This club is built on values and what we want to do is respect them. We want to build solidarity every day.
"We want to give our best until the end of the season."

Alan Curtis: "We've got a good record there in recent seasons. We've beaten them twice and also drawn in the last three years, and we can certainly draw confidence from that.
"We knew how difficult these two away games were going to be but we go to Arsenal with the same mindset and that is to try and win."
