Jordan Ayew goal helps Swansea beat Arsenal

Manchester United January transfer news LIVE Ozil ready to commit to Arsenal

Swansea went with five across the back which made things hard for Arsenal, particularly in the opening half an hour of the contest as they failed to create any sort of opportunities.

Cech's bad clearance went straight to Ayew, who made no mistake to roll home his fifth goal in nine games.

But Swansea are a different proposition under Carlos Carvalhal, who has taken 10 points from 15 since succeeding Paul Clement, and this victory steered them out of the bottom three for the first time since November 4. Mawson's pass allowed Clucas to run clear of the Arsenal defence before slotting low beyond the advancing Cech. However, Alexandre Lacazette was poor, and with the sale of Olivier Giroud, it puts a lot of pressure on the incoming Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But with Sanchez gone, Wenger hopes he can rebuild his side around the axis of Armenian playmaker Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil. He seized on Petr Cech's defensive error and set up the third.

"They'll create more chances than Liverpool did and that will be the difference".

Swansea City: Fabianski 6, Naughton 6, Van Der Hoorn 6, Fernandez 6, Mawson 6, Olsson 7, Clucas 8, Ki 6, Fer 6, Dyer 7, Ayew 8. Wenger might deploy Jack in a slightly more advanced role in front of Xhaka and Ramsey when we're in possession but ask him to drop back in to a three-man midfield when we lose the ball. Subs: Mkhitaryan 6, Giroud 6.

30' - FABIANSKI SAVE - Fabianski gets a hand to a fierce shot from Iwobi after he was slipped into the box. Monreal's poor clearance was pounced on by Tom Carroll, who fed Ayew and the Ghanaian made his way to the right byline before Mustafi diverted the ball into the six-yard box, where Clucas smashed home. Clucas scores - Dearie me, Arsenal.

The goal unnerved Cech as he soon struggled to cope with a Ki free-kick, palming it away for a corner when there was no Swansea player near him. Clucas scores - Game over, man, game over!
