Swansea City's Michu is gunning for more goals against Arsenal

MICHU has warned Arsenal he will be gunning for more goals when Arsene Wenger’s side visit the Liberty Stadium on Sunday (1.30).

The Spanish forward struck a sensational late double to hand Swansea City an historic win at the Emirates just over a month ago.

Michu has been a revelation since sealing a £2.2 million switch from La Liga outfit Rayo Vallecano last summer.

He is the third top scorer in the Premier League with 13 goals to his name and was unlucky not to add to that tally against Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.

The 26-year-old twice hit the post during Swansea’s 2-2 draw with Paul Lambert’s side.

And afterwards he insisted the frustration of those misses has only made him more hungry to find the net when Swansea begin their FA Cup campaign this weekend.

“The win at the Emirates was good. It was good to score two goals as well, but I always want more,” said Michu.

“I’m not happy with my chances (against Villa) because I had two chances and couldn’t score.

“I want to score in every game, it’s good for the team that we got it to 2-2 but I am not happy with my chances.

“I thought I shot well but maybe it was a bit unlucky with the posts.”

Swansea go into the game on a four-game unbeaten run, though still smarting from a game against Villa they could have lost, but should have won.

Danny Graham’s injury-time equaliser salvaged a point after Michael Laudrup’s side missed a glut of chances to put the game to bed before half-time.

Having suffering a wobble, Arsenal have picked up of late — beating Reading, Wigan and Newcastle — but could only draw with Southampton in their last outing.

Wenger expects to take a full squad to Swansea, with midfielder Abou Diaby and full-back Andre Santos now back in training after their injury lay-offs.

Reserve goalkeeper Vito Mannone has been suffering from a virus, as has midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong following his return from a month on loan at Charlton.

After Pablo Hernandez and Angel Rangel returned to the fold against Villa, Swansea’s only injury concern is long-term absentee Neil Taylor.
