Saved well from Cazorla's volley in the 18th minute. Was beaten well by Monreal for Arsenal's goal and could do nothing about Gervinho's late second.
The Wales international was solid at the back for the hosts and put in some vital blocks during the game. Twice he stopped what looked like certain goals by getting in the way of efforts from Walcott and Giroud.
The experienced centre-back was caught out late on for Gervinho's goal and perhaps should have cleared the ball before Monreal scored the first for Arsenal.
Burst forward and dinked an effort just wide in the 14th minute. Allowed more space than Davies at left-back and he made the most of it by proving an outlet for his side on a number of occasions.
Assured at full-back for the home side, but was not given a chance to get forward as he was pinned back by Arsenal's overlapping right-back, Jenkinson.
Welcomed back to the starting line-up following a spell out with a hip injury, the midfielder was confident in possession throughout and acted as the springboard for many of his team's attacks.
Started the game delightfully with a skilful flick and also fired a shot just wide after spinning past Mertesacker midway through the first half. Skied an effort high over the bar in the second half.
Flop of the Match
Did not have as great an impact as he could have as he often over-complicated passes in attacking areas. His performance went dramatically downhill after a promising start.
Shot over early on and that seemed to knock his confidence as Jenkinson nullified the threat he posed. Found himself running into brick walls in the form of Mertesacker and Koscielny when he did cut inside.
Jonathan De Guzmán
Was very confident in possession for the hosts. Conceded a free kick after catching Cazorla as the Spaniard drove forward in the 25th minute.
Set Rangel up for a chance in the first half with a neat through ball and his range of passing allowed Swansea to work the ball into dangerous areas throughout the game. Subbed for Routledge in the second half.
Little impact on the match after being introduced late on.
Replaced Dyer later on and had no time to leave his mark.
Little to do in goal for the Gunners. Made one good stop from Michu midway through the first half only for play to be brought back for offside.
The imposing defender was turned easily by Michu in the 17th minute and his lack of mobility was exploited at times by Swansea's pacy attack. However he was strong in the air throughout.
Like Mertesacker he struggled a bit against Swansea's front three but will be pleased to have left the Liberty Stadium with a clean sheet.
The former Malaga full-back supported his side well in attack but this did lead to him being caught out of position at points. Scored the first goal with a driven effort from the edge of the box.
Showed great athleticism to match the pace of Dyer on a couple of occasions early on but nearly gifted Swansea a goal when his misplaced pass was diverted to Michu who shot narrowly wide. Provided great width in the second half.
Off the pace on his return to the Arsenal starting XI. Put in some ill-timed challenges as he struggled against Swansea's impressive midfield. Unsurprisingly subbed off after 70 minutes.
The Spaniard was the deepest midfielder for the visitors today and though he was neat and tidy on the ball it did limit his impact on the game.
Top of the Match
The attacker produced a competent performance for Wenger's men. He sent a dipping volley at goal in the 18th minute that Vorm scrambled to keep out and twice tested the Swansea goalkeeper after the break.
Linked effectively with his team-mates, particularly Oxlade-Chamberlain. A clever pass from the France international to Cazorla nearly resulted in a goal in the 52nd minute and 20 minutes later he did get an assist as his pass found Monreal who made it 1-0.
A quiet display from the England international. Arsenal often sent the ball out to Oxlade-Chamberlain on the left which restricted his input. Wasted a well-positioned free kick from 25 yards in the 27th minute. Subbed off late on.
The midfielder was a constant threat for Arsenal. He crashed a curling shot against the crossbar in the eighth minute before repeating the achievement with a swerving strike from 30 yards late in the first half. Replaced by Gervinho on 70 minutes.
Brought on with minutes to go.
Introduced as a second half substitute. Set up Gervinho for Arsenal's second goal late on.
Replaced Oxlade-Chamberlain in the second half. Showed his usual electric pace and even added an end product by calmly slotting past Vorm to make it 2-0.
