Instead, Tuesday's encounter has the hallmarks of a classic six-pointer and, depending on this weekend's results, could even send one team down.
It's the penultimate round of fixtures in the Premier League with a number of clubs in desperate need of points if they want to avoid relegation, while others already have their flip-flops on with one eye on the summer.
The Swans are winless in six, but manager Carlos Carvalhal isn't concerned, blaming the fixture list for the dip in form. "I never discuss anything with the club about players coming or going out".
"So far, the games that we have lost, are against the strongest teams of the competition".
"Where did we lose?" Lately, results have taken a turn and they're now six games without a win. The French boss will bring down the curtain on 22 years at the Gunners at the end of the season, and on Sunday will lead the side for the last time at home.
'That's the proposal, to have a look at our subsequent three video games in that method.
'In principle the calendar is constructive now, however within the follow you need to play video games and I do not consider in simple video games within the Premier League'. We showed a lot of fight and character and it was important to get a result, be it a draw or a win.

Premier League football is an expensive business, everybody knows that, but Sean Dyche's side are a terrific advertisement for the fact that relegation need not necessarily be ruinous.
Bournemouth have lost three straight games.
He said: "We don't look that far ahead to be perfectly honest". What we must do, is not care about other opponents because it's in our hands.
'However for the very best a part of the season they gained factors and achieved their aim of staying within the Premier League'. Last-place West Bromwich Albion is five points from safety with two games left and might be doomed.
First up in Swansea's three "cup finals" is a trip to the South Coast to face Bournemouth, who are virtually already safe.
And Carlos Carvalhal has been impressed by the Cherries this season.
Swansea boss Carvalhal said: "It is out of my control, I can not spend my time thinking or talking about these considerations". But it was Brighton's night, as they booked another season in the top flight following their promotion last season. "But they have extra quality and we must defend more than we attack".
