Swansea manager Michael Laudrup expects Arsenal to be thirsting for revenge after they were booed off following their 2-0 defeat to the Swans in December.

The Welsh club have won their last two meetings with the Gunners, including that win at the Emirates Stadium last month thanks to a Michu brace.

“It’s never nice to have lost at home and they will remember our game - they will want revenge,” he said.

“It looked bad after they played us - they were 10th. For a club like Arsenal, that’s a disaster.

“But they won three games consecutively and they are back again.

“They are many years without a trophy and they know the league is not a trophy for them. They have two left so they will come with their best possible line-up and do everything to beat us.”
