Arsenal Fight Back To Beat Swansea

Default
Arsenal came from a goal down to beat Swansea City 2-1 at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon.
Swansea got off to a great start after taking the lead just after eight minutes when Tammy Abraham played through Sam Clucas, who tucked the ball under an on-rushing Petr Cech to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.
Arsenal responded well and Alexis Sanchez combined with Sead Kolasinac, with Sanchez drawing a fine save from Lukasz Fabianski in the 41st minute.
Four minutes later, Andre Ayew forced Cech to make an exceptional save to keep out the Ghana international in what proved to be the final bit of action in the first half.
Arsenal needed five minutes after the break to find an equaliser as Kolasinac smashed the ball into the far corner to level matters at 1-1 in the 51st minute.
The Gunners were in control of the contest and got their second through midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the 58th minute.
It was all Arsenal as they looked for the third goal and almost found one through Hector Bellerin, who stretched to meet Sanchez’ cross but his effort hit the crossbar.  
Substitute Olivier Giroud almost made an impact after he created space for himself outside the box but saw his shot just brush the side net. 
The Gunners held on to their lead and claimed a 2-1 victory in front of their home fans.
