Gnabry pushing for starting place against Swansea


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.
