BLAST FROM THE PAST: Swans v Arsenal
7th November 2014
Swansea City 3 Arsenal 2
Liberty Stadium - Sunday, 15 January 2012
The Swans produced a stylish performance to pile more pressure on Arsenal in an enthralling contest at the Liberty Stadium.
Arsene Wenger's side took an early lead in SA1 as Robin van Persie fired past Michel Vorm from a tight angle.
However, the hosts responded well and drew level on 16 minutes as Nathan Dyer was tripped by Aaron Ramsey inside the box, and Scott Sinclair stepped up to coolly slot past Wojciech Szczesny.
Nathan Dyer gave Swansea a deserved lead after the break with a well-taken finish from just outside the penalty area, but Theo Walcott equalised for Arsenal with a finish finish over Michel Vorm.
But less than a minute later, the Swans dealt Arsenal a hammer blow as substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson sent Danny Graham clear and the striker produced a superb finish past Szczesny from a tight angle.
The Gunners railed late on - even introducing Thierry Henry from the bench - but the Swans held firm to claim a memorable win in their maiden Premier League season.
