Premier League Scores: Result and Highlights from the EPL Fixture between Arsenal v Swansea City on Saturday, December 01, 2012.
Result: Arsenal 0 – 2 Swansea City
Location: Emirates Stadium – Arsenal
|Arsenal – 0||Swansea City – 2|
I thought that Arsenal would at least be able to get a goal in this one, but it was a very close match with Michu’s brace coming within 3 minutes of each other and at the end of the match. Arsenal had more possession (52% to 48%) but Swansea had more chances on goal and finished better. Swansea took 14 shots with 7 on goal compared to Arsenal’s 10 shots and 5 on goal.
I had predicted a Swansea win and this is a huge win for them as it means that they now leapfrog Arsenal to move into 7th place level on points with Everton. With West Ham and Stoke City’s wins today Arsenal drop from 7th down to 10th, quite a long way off from the top, but still only 5 points behind Tottenham in fourth.
