How they rated
Not much chance of stopping his old club in the second-half having continued his good form with some key saves from Sanchez and Mertresacker before the break.
MIKE VAN DER HOORN
Struggled to start with and didn’t impress with the ball at his feet, but made some big wins in the air to add to Arsenal frustration.
FEDERICO FERNANDEZ (C)
Another good performance from the stand-in skipper with some very alert defending and good signs of leadership.
Still not back to his best. Some good work in the central three to begin with, but was slow to react too many times and should have dealt with Lacazette better in build-up to leveller.
Shown up by Clucas on the other flank. Offered little apart from invitation for Arsenal to attack his side and caught out of position for winner.
Much better from Carroll who showed great determination and discipline in middle line while making sure there was attempts to counter.
Once more frustrating given he gave that hope of linking defence to counter, but too often caught with poor use or loss of possession.
Fine outing as left wing-back with a goal for his rewards. Didn’t let anyone down defensively and showed good intent – and delivery – going forward.
Full of energy but ultimately lacking in quality. Credit to him for his pressing but still running into trouble and doesn’t hurt teams.
Another example why Swansea can have hope if they can get the most out of the loan star. Great assist for opener and was a problem for Arsenal until tiring.
