Arsenal faced one of their biggest Bugs at the Emirate Stadium and came out victorious courtesy of Theo Walcott's wonderful performance, the Swansea side who have in three matches before had taken 7 points from  the Arsenal side but trailed through this on throughout this away visit.

Theo Walcott took advantage of mistakes made by the Swansea defense to send Arsenal two goals ahead, his first goal was from an uncalcuated by Jordi Amat in the 26 minute and his second came as a result of a poor header Jack Cork made in the 33rd minute. This two goals were sufficient to keep the Arsenal side leading throughout the first 45.

The Swansea side had themselves some hope when Gylfi Sigurdsson had nice opportunity and took it nicely at the 38th minute and this hope was the fuel for their second half initial energy which had Arsenal struggle to keep the lead.

Mesut Ozil had no choice but to reduce their pressure in the 57th minute, with a nice volley sends Sanchez cross to the top corner of the net to put them back on two goal lead, though relieved of it seven minutes latter when supper sub Gonzalez Borja Boston sent Modou Barrow’s cross into the Arsenal goal.

Arsenal had their lead on the line in the 70th minute when Xhaka was sent off for some cynical tackle on Barrow, thus reducing them to 10 men.

Arsenal made a great victory today, and not only that they now share the same points with Manchester City at the top with 19 points and Swansea left at the bottom three
