Arsenal will be out to put their horror finish to the game with Anderlecht to one side when they make the trip down to Wales to face Swansea on Sunday.
The Gunners let slip a 3-0 lead midweek to draw 3-3 with the Belgian side and while qualification from the group is not in doubt, the manner in which Arsenal surrendered their advantage will have disappointed Arsene Wenger.
While the Frenchman will have ultimately been disappointed, back to back wins in the league has seen the club slowly climb the table with third place City now firmly in their sights, just three points ahead.
Last time out in the league they beat Burnley 3-0 to make it five goals for and none conceded in their last two games, a sign perhaps that they have found their rhythm after a slow start to the season.
The return of Theo Walcott has proved a catalyst for recent results and the England winger could make his first Premier League start of the season after a 10 minute cameo against the Clarets.
While Walcott escaped any criticism for the debacle against Anderlecht, his team Aaron Ramsey was less fortunate with the Welshman coming under pressure for another poor performance.

The midfielder has failed to hit the heights of last season however Wenger was quick to ease the expectation on the youngster, telling reporters in the build up to the game, “He has to keep his priorities right. He needs to help the team. It’s not about goal scoring,”
Ramsey will be in action on Sunday especially as Mikel Arteta injured his hamstring midweek and is out. He joins an injury list that includes Olivier Giroud, Matthieu Debuchy, Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil.
Swansea for their part will be without the suspended Jonjo Shelvey and Leon Britton however Dwight Tiendalli should be fit.
The Swans are currently two places and two below the fourth place Gunners and have lost just one of their last five, drawing three in the process. The club have the second defence in the league having conceded 10 goals, the same as Chelsea and one less than Arsenal.
