Arsenal will be without suspended defender Laurent Koscielny and injured midfielder Mikel Arteta (calf) for Wednesday's FA Cup third-round replay against Swansea at Emirates Stadium.

Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (calf) is also sidelined.

Forward Gervinho is away at the African Nations Cup with Ivory Coast.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is expected to shuffle his pack.

The Dane has a fully-fit squad to choose from for the trip to the Emirates Stadium, but is likely to make changes to his side in the middle of a month where the Swans could end up playing nine games.

Loan signing Roland Lamah is unavailable as he was not registered at the time of the initial tie, which ended in a 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Gibbs, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Sagna, Podolski, Cazorla Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wilshere, Walcott, Mannone, Coquelin, Santos, Jenkinson, Diaby, Giroud, Arshavin.

Swansea (from): Vorm, Bartley, Flores, Williams, Britton, Lita, Michu, Graham, Hernandez, Dyer, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Ki, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Davies.
