Routledge Expects Entertaining Game At Arsenal

Routledge Expects Entertaining Game At Arsenal

Swansea City midfielder Wayne Routledge says he's expecting an entertaining game on Saturday when they travel to Arsenal.

Brendan Rodgers' team face a side that like to play a very similar style of possession football, but they both receive criticism for their lack of direction in terms of creating goal chances.

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back following the 8-2 thrashing at Manchester United, while the Swans are still looking for their first League goal.

Routledge told BBC Sport that the Premier League is probably the most 'unforgiving' league in the world.

'The Premier League is probably the most unforgiving league in the world,'

'In the Championship most teams beat each other but if you're not on your game in the Premier League you can get taken apart.

'You always have to be on your game and play to the best of your ability. We need to play our game and we'll play our game on Saturday.'

'The feeling is we've had a decent start,'

'It's very early in the season and the league hasn't panned out yet.

'But I think we've showed in the first three games we're capable of matching teams in the Premier League.

'We've got two points from a possible nine but in the whole scheme of things we've had two clean sheets.

'For a promoted team to keep a clean sheet is hard enough so to keep back-to-back clean sheets is a big boost for the team.'

'If you lose quality you've got to replace it with quality and I feel they've done that,'

'It will be a very, very good entertaining game of football on Saturday.'
