With his transfer policy widely criticised and the club struggling to maintain their rock solid position amongst the top 4 clubs in England, speculation is mounting as to when Wenger will leave the Emirates and - more importantly - whom will succeed him. Arsenal fans will be hoping the turmoil behind the scenes doesn't filter through to the players.
The former Southampton wonderkid, who is not a hugely popular figure amongst the Arsenal fan base, has played just 27 minutes of Premier League football this season.
Swansea have only failed to score in one of their previous eight league visits to Arsenal, drawing a blank in their first visit to the Emirates in September 2011.
Arsene Wenger has called for patience when it comes to the development of Eddie Nketiah, while insisting Theo Walcott's future will not be impacted by the emergence of the new Arsenal star.
However, Arsenal are yet to drop points at home in the Premier League this season, and if their attacking trio are fit and firing, they will surely have too much for the visitors on Saturday. The record by an Arsenal player in their first 10 PL apps for the club is held by teammate Sanchez (8).
A 2-1 defeat at home to Leicester City last week means it's now three losses in four games for Swansea City and they know they're going to be in for a tough season yet again.
Walcott joined the Gunners as a 16-year-old but, despite being handed the captain's armband by his manager, produced a disappointing display against Championship Norwich on Tuesday night.
The match is not being televised in the United Kingdom and kicks off at 15:00 BST.
