Arsenal have received an injury boost ahead of their clash against Swansea City after defender Jordi Amat was ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken metatarsal.

"Swansea City defender Jordi Amat has been ruled out for the rest of the season," a statement read on Swansea's official site.

The defender, who has made 12 appearances in all competitions for the south Wales club, recently signed a contract extension keeping him at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2018.

The Spanish centre-back, has recently filled in for Neil Taylor on the left side of defence during his suspension, missed last weekend's game with a foot injury, but the injury was much worse than first feared.

"The Spanish centre-back missed last weekend's home win over Stoke City at the Liberty with a foot injury - and a scan this week revealed a broken metatarsal," the statement added.

This has prompted the club to recall two players, who were out on loan to cover for the loss of the defender for the remainder of the season.

Dwight Tiendalli has been called back from his loan spell at Middlesbrough, where he made two appearances for the Championship club, who are looking to get promoted to the Premier League via the playoffs.

Jazz Richards was also called back from his loan spell at Fulham, where he made 14 appearances and the club have confirmed the duo are available for selection for their remaining three games of the season.

Meanwhile, Swansea boss Garry Monk has praised Lukasz Fabianski ahead of the goalkeeper's first visit to the emirates following his departure last summer.

The Poland international was the manager's first signing for the club and believes that he made the right decision to sign the former Gunners star, as he has been fantastic in every aspect for the club this season.

"Lukasz has been truly fantastic. When I making a decision on bringing in a keeper, I was very keen on the type who could play with his feet and have good distribution, and obviously Fab has that [sic]," Monk said, as quoted by Wales Online.

"But I also wanted someone who could command the box. I was very conscious of the crossing element because we did a study last summer about how teams attack and what were their biggest weapons; crosses were at the top of the list."

"I wanted someone who could be very confident in that regard and I think you have seen from this season he continuously comes and tries to help his defence. He punches, catches – and I can't really remember him dropping a cross," the former Swans defender added.
