Gunners shocked by the Swans 0

Posted on January 30, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat at struggling Swansea City on Tuesday night after a lacklustre display in south Wales.

The home side had the first attempt on goal on seven minutes. Jordan Ayew picked up the ball on the edge of the Arsenal area and the forward’s effort deflected over Peter Cech and wide of the post.

The Swans threatened again two minutes later. Nathan Dyer’s cross found Alfie Mawson at the far post and the defender looked set to score from close-range, only for Aaron Ramsey to produce a brilliant last-gasp block on the slide.

Sanchez brace for Arsenal downs Hull 0

Arsenal recorded a 2-0 home win over struggling Hull City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, with Alexis Sanchez scoring a brace.

The first effort of the game arrived on four minutes, as Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin dragged an effort wide of goal. The Gunners had the next chance, as Alexis Sanchez shot tamely at Eldin Jakupovic when through on goal, although Andrea Ranocchia did well to distract the Chilean.

The visitors came close to taking the lead on 13 minutes. Kamil Grosicki’s cross was headed towards goal by Oumar Niasse, only for Petr Cech to produce a fantastic save to deny the on-loan striker.
