Arsenal Stunned By Swansea In Defeat

Sam Clucas celebrates his goal against Arsenal

Petr Cech‘s awful mistake and two goals from Sam Clucas condemned Arsenal to a shock 3-1 defeat at Swansea as the resurgent hosts climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone on Tuesday.


Arsenal goalkeeper Cech horribly miscued an attempted clearance that allowed Jordan Ayew to give Swansea a crucial 61st-minute lead.


Nacho Monreal had put Arsenal 1-0 up, but Clucas levelled before the midfielder sealed the victory with Swansea’s third goal in the 86th minute.


The result leaves Gunners manager Arsene Wenger still searching for his first away win of 2018, despite a debut for substitute Henrikh Mkhitaryan following his move from Manchester United.


Swansea earned back-to-back wins for the first time this season, while Arsene Wenger’s side have won only three of 13 Premier League away games this term and won only one of their last five league games.
