Many thanks for joining us, and well done again to Swansea. For Arsenal fans, nothing I can say will help.
Arsene Wenger receiving calls to resign as the final whistle blows. Swansea move above Arsenal in the table and you feel that some serious questions need to be asked at the club
Cazorla has a shot blocked as they finally begin to apply pressure, and then Vermaelen heads at the goalkeeper
The crowd really getting on Arsenal's back as their side struggle to coherently move forward. This does look like a third consecutive draw.
Huge moment in the game, and Mark Clattenburg rules that Chico gets the ball against Giroud through on goal. It's very much touch and go, but have to side with the referee
Swansea's harrying and hastling again forces the mistake from Szczesny who passes the ball out of play
On a rare advance forward during the second half Angel Rangel forces a brilliant save from Szczesny, the Pole tipping wide for a corner
Strong work from Cazorla as he drives at the Swansea defence, eventially allowing Gibbs to win a corner. Much better from Arsenal
More appeals for a penalty from Arsenal as Cazorla goes down. Difficult to see if there was contact, but if not it should be a booking for simulation
Schechter wins a corner for Swansea. Hard work for Schechter today on his own up front, but he does well in that instance
Big Arsenal appeals for a penalty as Gervinho is blocked off. Was probably a foul, but also probably outside the box
Santi Cazorla forces the first save from Tremmel after Wilshere beats a couple of players. Encouraging
A first half of frustration for Arsene Wenger. Boos ring out at the Emirates. Arsenal haven't been poor but just seem uninventive, and Swansea have had the better chances
Swansea working so hard to retrieve possession, that being essentially the difference between the two sides currently
De Guzman whips the free kick and clips the top of the net as it fires just over. Decent effort but perhaps just too close
The game has lost some of its early spark, both sides slowing the ball down. Cannot really blame Swansea for such a mindset, but Arsenal need to look for invention
Huge chance for Swansea. Nathan Dyer gets through on goal, but just hesitates and allows Vermaelen to get a block in and send the ball for a corner
Another fine ball in from Jenkinson, and Santi Cazorla heads straight at Tremmel from the penalty spot. Arsenal starting to press
Podolski turns to find some space in the area but his shot is blocked, and then the German then backheels to try and play in Gervinho, but the ball was slightly too long. Better from Arsenal
Fabulous cross from Carl Jenkinson, and Chico Flores does wonderfully well to head clear with Gervinho challenging
From a free kick out wide Ki delivers for Swansea, but the delivery has to be better, hitting the first man
De Guzman wins a foul 35 yards out after Jack Wilshere leans onto the midfielder. It comes to nothing
Arsenal now dominating possession. There is little incision but are at least holding their own after absorbing pressure
As a result of Arsenal's start, Arsene Wenger has been pacing the touchline since pretty much minute one
Fabulous double save from Szczesny from Angel Rangel, who twice fires in on goal from inside the area. The resultant corner is cleared
Arsenal seem happy to let Swansea have the ball in their own half, closing them down when they break over halfway
Chance for Ashley Williams after Arsenal fail to clear, but his volley is almost a complete air shot. Arsenal need to settle
Fine Tackle from Vermaelen on Schechter to stop the striker having a shot on goal. Bright start from Swansea
Oooh, Aaron Morgan has different thoughts - "swans on form at the moment. Have to go 2-1 swans but a draw is a real possiblity". Swansea did look very impressive in their defeat of West Brom on Wednesday.
The Emirates still has a fair bit of filling up to do as we approach kick off. Though any supporters keeping warm in the back of the stands could not be blamed for doing so. It is very much a hat, gloves and scarf Saturday
Carl Fletcher has been in touch on Twitter to say "you're in for an entertaining game, 3-1 or 3-2 to Arsenal I think (& hope) #COYG". I agree that this should be one of the easiest games on the eye in the Premier League
What's that, you want a prediction from me? Okay, Okay, how about Arsenal 2-1 with Santi Cazorla scoring first? That bet is 40/1 on Skybet
Skybet have Arsenal at clear 2/5 favourites, with the away side priced at 13/2. Midweek goalscorers Theo Walcott and Michu are priced at 5/1 and 7/1 respectively to score the first goal
Just over 20 minutes until kick off here at the Emirates, and the ground is starting to fill up a little. The big team news is Olivier Giroud dropped to the bench with Gervinho coming in
Our referee today is Mark Clattenburg, who has clearly been the focus of much attention recently. Really good to see a fine referee back in action.
Related to that, before the game today a group of Arsenal supporters have taken part in a march to protest against the club's running. They clearly feel that added investment is necessary.
Michael Laudrup is quoted yesterday as stating that Arsenal will not win the title this season, a situation that will not change with the club's current budget. He might be right, but not exactly what Arsenal fans want to hear.
Another reminder to give me a thought, prediction, pearl of wisdom or follow on Twitter by contacting @danielstorey85
Arsenal are the only team in the Premier League not to concede a goal in the last fifteen minutes of a game
Liam from Waterford in Ireland is studying for an exam (procrastination is the key) and has this to say " Arsenal to win today - but only just". Short and sweet.
Swansea - Tremmel, Rangel, Williams, Chico, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Ki, Dyer, Michu, Shechter Subs - Cornell, Monk, Tiendalli, Agustien, Richards, Moore, Donnelly
Arsenal - Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski, Gervinho Subs - Mannone, Squillaci, Coquelin, Ramsey, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud
Without further ado let me ask you to get in touch with your thoughts and predictions for the game. danielstorey85 is the method of doing so
Swansea, meanwhile, are on a lovely run of form, unbeaten in five and lost just one of nine in the league. They would actually go above their hosts with a win today.
The Gunners currently sit twelve points behind Manchester United and five points of West Brom in fourth.
Despite winning their last home Premier League game 5-2 against their bitterest rivals, the pressure is back on Arsenal after consecutive away draws against Aston Villa and Everton.
