Mkhitaryan and Giroud on the bench at Swansea

Giroud - reportedly the linchpin in a three-team deal that would send him to Chelsea and bring Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal - came on for the final 15 minutes, but Swansea did not falter.

Ahead of the game, Mkhitaryan had some complimentary things to say about his new boss to the Arsenal Player.

The attacking midfielder had spoken about his desire to play for Arsenal in an interview with Uefa in 2009 in which he praised Wenger for giving young players a chance to express themselves.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan completed his move from Manchester United to Arsenal earlier this month as Alexis Sanchez went in the opposite direction. Arsenal will be hoping to stay in the race for the top four by getting a result at Swansea.

Everyone's favourite Armenian, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has arrived at the Emirates.

"You see straight away that he's a great football player, which we knew before we got him here", said Wenger on Friday.

Swansea started brightly with Alfie Mawson and Clucas both coming close to scoring, only to be denied by late saving tackles from Aaron Ramsey and Mohamed Elneny respectively.

Olivier Giroud is fit after a hamstring injury, but his availability is dependent on any outgoing transfer.

Swansea climbed out of the relegation zone as they battled back from a goal down to stun Arsenal with a 3-1 win at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday.

Daily Star newspaper of the United Kingdom has presented its possible starting lineup for Arsenal's forthcoming English Premier League football match against Swansea City.

Arsenal have only lost one of their last 34 Premier League games against the side starting that day bottom of the table (W27 D6), losing 3-4 at Blackburn in September 2011.

There is still so much to do this January for the Gunners, but three points takes priority.

Arsenal goalkeeper, Petr Cech, has warned that the club may miss out of Europe most prestigious club competition, the Champions League again this season.
