Bafetimbi Gomis came off the bench to score an 87th-minute winner and secure Swansea a 1-0 victory over Arsenal to give them victories home and away against the Gunners this season.

Arsenal dominated possession throughout the game having named an unchanged line-up for the fifth straight game, with Aaron Ramsey shaking off an injury to start in midfield.

But the home side failed to register a single shot on target in the first-half as they failed to find a cutting edge, and Swansea actually had the better chances even if the didn't control possession.

But the second half soon came alive as both Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey had chances saved by returning former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. The introduction of Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott showed Arsenal were desperate for a winner, but it backfired as Gomis headed in the winner which had to be verified by goal-line technology.
