  1. FULL-TIME

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Ozil and Giroud

    There are boos, there are hands on heads in the stadium. 

    As a colleague says, "Arsenal just cannot help themselves". It seems any hope of a first title since 2004 is now gone. Surely it's over?

    The match report is live and will be built over the coming minute. Click here to access it.

    Alan Curtis is beaming on the Emirates turf and Ashley Williams applauds the travelling faithful before hugging his coach.

    That's that from me, thank you for joining me.

  2. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Petr Cech comes up for an Arsenal corner but it is defended and Bafetimbi Gomis shoots from his own half, it won't threaten the empty net.

  3. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    A cross into the box drifts past everyone and Swansea have a goal kick. Their fans are in fine voice in the corner of this huge stadium.

    All the Swansea shirts are behind the ball bar Bafetimbi Gomis who tries to run the ball clear but back come Arsenal...

  4. PENALTY APPEAL

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Aaron Ramsey

    Aaron Ramsey bursts into the box and goes down under the challenge of Ashley Williams, nothing doing. We have five added minutes.

  5. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Lukasz Fabianski has the ball in his hands after fielding a tame header. We have two minutes of normal time to go and Swansea look relatively comfortable.

    A substitution to waste time now, Angel Rangel for Andre Ayew.

  6. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Deep cross into the Swansea box, brilliant header to concede a corner by Kyle Naughton.

  7. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    In comes a Nacho Monreal cross, hacked away at the back post.

    Karly Boy: Wenger is clueless, his substitutions are laughable, bring in Mourinho, anything is better than this feeble capitulation.

    Vince: I wonder what lines Wenger will come out with to insult our intelligence this time? 8 million a year...for this?

  9. Away days to decide it?

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    A win tonight and Arsenal are right in the mix, make no mistake. But a look at their away fixtures does prompt concern. To say there are trick trips is an understatement. 

    Map of UK

    The Gunners venture away from the comfort of Emirates Stadium to face Tottenham, Everton, West Ham, Sunderland and Manchester City.

    It looks a tall order. Surely, surely, their title dreams are over now?

  10. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    There seems to be little belief in this Arsenal side now. They are spluttering towards defeat and Andre Ayew is game for a fight as he draws a foul from Danny Welbeck. What a result this would be for the Welsh side, they'd be six points clear of the drop zone.

  11. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    So what have Arsenal got? Aaron Ramsey is in the area and finds Olivier Giroud, on to Nacho Monreal who is 14 yards out but lifts the ball over.

  12. Hope for Arsenal

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Lukas Fabianski

    Only Bournemouth have given away as many points from winning positions as the Swans.

  13. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    That was Ashley Williams' first goal since March of 2014.

  14. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Paul Ince

    Former MK Dons manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    “Not only was Cech at fault but there was no-one marking Williams. You cannot make those mistakes at any level, never mind when you are chasing a title.”

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea

    Theo Walcott in for Alexis Sanchez. Arsenal could be about to lose three straight games for the first time since 2010.

  16. GOAL

    Arsenal 1-2 Swansea - Ashley Williams

    Ashley Williams scores

    Gylfi Sigurdsson stands over a free-kick for Swansea in a wide area, in it comes... GOAL. Ashley Williams knows little about it but turns home from a couple of yards.

    Petr Cech seemed to miss his punch in the six-yard box and the ball just hit Williams who races away punching the air.

  17. Post update

    Arsenal 1-1 Swansea

    Aaron Ramsey

    Aaron Ramsey in the Arsenal midfield, wide for Hector Bellering who crosses into the arms of the visiting goalkeeper. Easy. He will take them all night long.

  18. Post update

    Arsenal 1-1 Swansea

    This is only Jay Fulton's third league outing in a Swansea shirt. A big ask.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal 1-1 Swansea

    Leroy Fer makes way for Jay Fulton in the Swansea midfield.

  20. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Arsenal 1-1 Swansea

    Alexis Sanchez

    The stage is set for Alexis Sanchez as he lines up a free-kick in a central position. Here he comes, small deflection... WHACK. Off the bar. That's the second time Arsenal have hit the woodwork.
