ON THIS DAY: Magical Michu shoots down Gunners
1st December 2016
Arsenal 0-2 Swans
Premier League: Saturday, December 1, 2012
The Swans claimed a famous victory at The Emirates Stadium as Michu scored twice late on to send Michael Laudrup's side up to seventh in the Barclays Premier League table.
In a memorable day for the club, the Swans were deserved victors as Michu fired home in the 88th minute to put the visitors ahead before his scored his tenth league goal in added on time to seal the victory.
His first came after a delightful first-touch pass from sub Luke Moore, who sent the midfielder in on goal before he fired past Wojciech Szczesny and into the far corner as the game looked to be edging to a draw.
His second came in added on time, superb persistence from Nathan Dyer saw the winger take possession off Carl Jenkinson on the halfway line with Michu latching onto the loose and calmly picking his spot to beat Szczesny.
This win continues the Swans' fine run of form - now beaten just once in the last ten games - which includes victories on the road at Liverpool in the Capital One Cup and Newcastle.
