Gnabry pushing for starting place against Swansea

Gnabry

Serge Gnabry could make his third consecutive appearance in of the season when Arsenal take on Swansea City tomorrow evening.

The German Under-21 international made a surprise start against Stoke last week after Theo Walcott pulled out through injury during the warm-up.

Gnabry also played 120 minutes in Arsenal’s penalty shoot-out win over West Brom on Wednesday where he was involved in compatriot Thomas Eisfeld’s neat opening goal.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealed in a pre-match interview that he believes Gnabry possesses all the ‘physical and mental’ attributes needed to play regularly in the first team.

Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski all remain sidelined while in-form Aaron Ramsey faces a fitness test before tomorrow’s game at the Liberty Stadium.

Not that impressed so far, so think it is a bit early to be giving him a regular start in the first team.

M W-B, I don’t think he’ll be a regular starter when we’ve a full squad but I have to say that I am impressed by him. In a couple of years (assuming he misses any serious injuries), I can certainly see him being a big player for us.
