The Gunners dominated the game from the opening whistle, and had 23 shots on the Swans’ goal to the visitors’ eight.

Arsene Wenger made a series of attacking substitutions, with Jack Wilshere replacing holding player Francis Coquelin, and Theo Walcott brought on for Olivier Giroud as the Gunners sought to find space behind the tight Swansea defence.

Wenger was urging his team forward, but unlike in numerous classic Arsenal defeats of the past, Garry Monk’s men didn’t have that much threat on the counterattack.

Indeed, Swansea were restricted to only two shots within the area, and just one within the six yard box.

Unfortunately for the Gunners, it proved the winner, and with 87 minutes on the clock, they were left with hardly any time to even salvage a point.

On a rare attack from the south Wales side, Jefferson Montero lofted in a high cross from the left.

Gomis headed to the bottom right hand corner of the goal, and it initially appeared that Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina had saved the opportunity.

However, the watch on Kevin Friend’s wrist said otherwise, and video replays confirmed Hawkeye technology was correct.
