Henrikh Mkhitaryan is poised to make his Arsenal debut when Arsene Wenger's side resume their Premier League campaign at Swansea City tonight. The Gunners head to South Wales boosted by their League Cup semi-final triumph over Chelsea and rested following a free weekend, a consequence of the holders' early exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Mkhitaryan's arrival from Manchester United also means Wenger's players have been able to prepare for the game without the sideshow caused by Alexis Sanchez's departure. But with Sanchez gone, Wenger hopes he can rebuild his side around the axis of Armenian playmaker Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil. The extent to which that partnership can flourish will depend on whether Ozil opts to stay at Arsenal beyond the end of his current contract which expires at the end of this season.
