Arsenal vs Swansea

For the first time, Arsenal can win back-to-back EPL matches against Swansea. It will be a difficult task given that the Swans have won here at The Emirates three times. Only Chelsea have won more there.

Arsene Wenger will take charge of his 800th EPL match, a record only bettered by former rival Sir Alex Ferguson (810).
Olivier Giroud knows a thing or two in cracking the Swansea defence, having been directly involved in five goals in seven EPL starts against Swansea (three goals, two assists).

Arsenal have no new injury worries but are still without Shkodran Mustafi, Calum Chambers, Danny Welbeck and Dvid Ospina. Wilfried Bony and Renato Saches are definitely out for Swansea.


Match Stats:

  • Arsenal 2-1 Swansea
  • Shots: 17-4
  • Possession: 73%-27%
  • Corner kicks: 5-2

Aaron Ramsey scored his 50th goal for Arsenal, on Arsene Wenger's 800th Premier League match, as they beat Swansea City 2-1.

Sam Clucas put the visitors ahead with his first goal for the club after a pinpoint pass from Tammy Abraham and they could have led 2-0 at half-time but Petr Cech denied Jordan Ayew.

Sead Kolasinac equalised for Arsenal with a fierce left-foot shot from 14 yards, before setting up Ramsey for the winner.

In-between the goals, Abraham had an effort ruled out for offside.

The victory takes Arsenal to 19 points in fifth while Swansea are in 17th.
