Manager Brendan Rodgers will be without deadline-day signings Darnel Situ and Rafik Halliche when Swansea travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal tomorrow.

The south Wales club are waiting for international clearance from FIFA before they can field the duo, although fellow new signing Federico Bessone is available.

Defender Alan Tate is beginning his lengthy rehabilitation after breaking his leg in a golf buggy crash, while captain Garry Monk is once again absent with an ongoing foot injury. Craig Beattie is another absentee as the Swans go in search of a first win and goal of the season, the striker out with an ankle injury.

Provisional squad: Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Orlandi, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Dobbie, Routledge, Cotterill, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Moreira, Rangel, Agustien, Gower, Butler, Tremmel.
