IMAGINE being a Swansea fan and looking at the opposition teamsheet and seeing the names of Robin van Persie and Thierry Henry.

It would be enough to make you spring a leek! Only Man Utd have left the Liberty this season with three points but with that man and Robin up front who would bet against the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger is set to pair the deadly duo for the first time and that makes the Gunners look a decent bet at 5-6 with BetVictor. The Swans are 4-1 with the likes of Ladbrokes and Paddy Power.

I'd take van Persie at 10-3 with unibet ahead of Henry at 11-2 with bet365 and Betfred to grab the opener.  To score at any time it's van Persie 10-11 at Coral while Henry is 13-8 with bet365.

There have been just 16 goals in 10 games at the Liberty, four for away sides, so 1-0 or 2-0 Arsenal looks the call. Under 2.5 goals pays 5-6 with Stan James.

The other Premier League game sees Newcastle entertain QPR in Mark Hughes' first game in charge for the visitors.

Hughes has been brought in to try to help shore things up the back and luckily for him Newcastle will pose less of a threat without top scorer Demba Ba who is off to the African Nations.

He's bound to be a big loss and I can see Hughes opening with a point. A draw pays 11-4 with Coral.

Newcastle are a biggest 4-5 with bet 365 and others and you can get 4-1 with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power on Rangers.

Again without Ba under 2.5 goals could be on and pays 10-11 at Ladbrokes and bet365.
