Are you one of the several thousand Arsenal fans bound for Wales this Sunday as the Gunners go in search of three Barclays Premier League points at Swansea City? Arséne Wenger’s side will make the 193 mile journey from London to Swansea this weekend, safe in the knowledge that their loyal away support will be on hand to help roar them to victory at the Liberty Stadium.
As the proud official car and van rental partner of Arsenal, we’ve dispatched our top scouts to gather all the key stats and information required to help travelling Gunners enjoy the best possible road trip from London to Swansea. The Europcar Match Travel Guide features advice on the quickest route, as well as parking, roadside service stations and amenities close to the stadium.
This is the first of three guides coming your way over the next few weeks, with Arsenal’s crucial away trips to West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City also receiving the full travel guide treatment.
This guide also includes details of both sides’ respective club honours, as well as the key stats relating to the history between the two teams. For instance, did you know that despite having played each other on 12 occasions, no game between the two clubs has ever finished goalless? It bodes well for what promises to be a close-fought encounter on Sunday, with just a few points separating the two sides.
The teams last met back in March and were forced to settle for a share of the spoils following a 2-2 draw at the Emirates. The Gunners have since added reinforcements to their attacking line, however, with Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez having arrived from Manchester United and Barcelona this summer. Wenger will also be looking to call upon the fit again Theo Walcott, and the England striker will no doubt be keen to banish his injury woes and return to his goal scoring ways. May he have a role to play on Sunday?
