Premier League – Swansea complete rousing win over Arsenal

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Arsenal conceded two goals in three manic minutes as Swansea came from

behind to complete a rousing 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium.

Garry Monk's side moved above Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier

League table courtesy of a delightful free-kick from Gylfi Sigurdsson

on 75 minutes and an expert header from Bafetimbi Gomis on 78 minutes

only seconds after he had replaced Wilfried Bony.

Arsenal moved ahead courtesy of the almost obligatory goal from Alexis

Sanchez on 63 minutes when he swept home a Danny Welbeck cross on the

counter attack, but they again flattered to deceive.

Having blown a 3-0 lead in drawing 3-3 with Anderlecht in the

Champions League in midweek, questions will again rightly be asked

about the defensive shortcomings that continue to blight Arsene

Wenger's side.

Swansea won't care much. They have made their best start to a Premier

League season having amassed 18 points from 11 games with Arsenal one

point worse off in sixth spot.
