Swansea City are beaten by Arsenal
SWANSEA City crashed to a second successive Premier League defeat as goals from Nacho Monreal and Gervinho proved decisive for Arsenal at the Liberty.
Michael Laudrup's side started well, but then the heavens opened and a prolonged heavy downpour seemed to upset the hosts' rhythm.
Passes went astray and Arsenal began to gain the upper hand.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain twice struck the bar, while Michel Vorm held another effort from Santi Cazorla in the first half.

Swansea too had chances, the best of which fell to Michu.
The Spanish forward turned and screwed a shot just wide after receiving a pass from Jonathan de Guzman and saw another shot saved only to be flagged offside.
Arsenal broke the deadlock with 16 minutes remaining.
Cazorla's cross came back to Monreal whose scruffy shot found a way past Vorm and into the net.
As Swansea pushed for an equaliser, they were hit on the break in injury-time.
Pablo Hernandez lost possession and the ball was moved quickly forwards to Aaron Ramsey who picked out Gervinho and the substitute swept home.
