Arsenal Whip Swansea, Man United Escape Palace Defeat

Arsenal bounced back from their Capital One Cup disappointment to beat Swansea 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

After a poor first half, Arsenal grabbed the first goal in the 49th minute through Olivier Giroud who headed in a Mezut Ozil corner.

In the 68th minute, Laurent Koscielny made it 2-0 following Lukasz Fabianki’s poor handling of an Ozil cross.

Joel Campbell put the game beyond doubt on 73 minutes after he pounced on a cross by Ozil.

Arsenal reain second in the league table behind Manchester City who beat Norwich 2-1.

They will travel to White Hart Lane to take on North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their next league game.

Also on Saturday, a poor Manchester United side were lucky to escape Selhurst Park with a 0-0 draw.
Crystal Palace absolutely battered the Red Devils but David De Gea and poor finishing meant Louis Van Gaal’s men played their third straight goalless draw in all competitions.
