Mark Lawrenson is expecting to see Arsenal claim a comfortable 3-0 victory over Swansea City in the Premier League at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners head into the game fresh from having sealed an impressive 5-2 win over Everton last weekend to keep them in fifth place in the table and nine points behind leaders Manchester City.

Arsenal also booked their place in the quarter-finals of the League Cup on Wednesday night with a 2-1 win over Norwich City at The Emirates.

The north London side will be looking to string together some consistent results and haul themselves back into the Premier League title race.

And former Liverpool star Lawrenson is tipping the north London side to claim all three points when they host the Welsh club on Saturday afternoon.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said:

Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.

The north Londoners missed out on Champions League qualification last season when they finished fifth in the table.

However, they did end the campaign on a high when they beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley to lift the trophy for the third time in four years.
