ARSENAL 2-1 SWANSEA
FT: That's it! Arsene Wenger's 800th Premier League game in charge of the club ends in a victory, and a second-half comeback with goals from Ramsey and Kolasinac.
It wasn't all simple for the Gunners, but a satisfying win and fine second-half showing.
Highlights to follow at 5.15pm...
90+3: Arsenal fans in full voice as we enter the last minute of added time. The ball is deep in Swansea's half.
90+1: Chance for Arsenal to wrap it up, but Sanchez miscontrols in the box, before Ozil's through ball runs out of play.
90: Swansea on the ball... as we head into added time. Three minutes remain.
89: Giroud has it on the edge, has a go from 20 yards with his left foot, but it hits the side-netting.
88: This game definitely isn't wrapped up for Arsenal. McBurnie gets a header up at the far post, looking for Abraham, but Koscielny just about clears.
Fernandez then chucks it into the area, but Cech collects.
86: CLOSE! Xhaka feeds Monreal on the left, he puts in a superb ball for Giroud, who is clear in the box...
But the Frenchman can't wrap his foot around it! It goes a few yards wide from inside the six-yard box.
84: Last Swansea sub. Carroll comes off for young striker McBurnie
82: Lacazette doesn't look happy as he sees his number up... Giroud comes on to replace him.
And another Swansea change; Dyer on for Ayew. Narsingh on for Van der Hoorn.
80: Ouch. Xhaka and Fer fly into a challenge, Fer screams in pain, but both get up and shake hands. Lee Mason gives Swansea the free-kick, no more.
79: Arsenal will hope this isn't too serious as Kolasinac limps off, replaced by Holding.
Looks like he's holding his groin.
78: WIDE! Clucas finds Abraham, who turns well and shoots... but it goes a yard wide! Unlucky by Abraham, who has fought well this afternoon.
Kolasinac is struggling, and will be replaced by Holding soon.
76: Lovely from Kolasinac, who flicks it between his legs to find Sanchez, but the Chilean's cross with the outside of his boot is collected by Fabianski. Put your foot through it, Sanchez!
74: Bellerin has been heavily involved here... he pushes forward with the ball, looks to slip it in for Lacazette behind the defence, but it's miscued.
72: Xhaka loves that diagonal out to Kolasinac. It has worked most of the time this afternoon, notably for the second goal.
69: Just over 20 minutes for Swansea to get something here. There's an air around the Emirates that this game is done and dusted... not the case.
67: OFF THE BAR! So close to an Arsenal third. Bellerin stretches to get on the end of a ball across the face of goal... he gets a touch, but it comes off the top of the bar and out for a goal kick!
65: Lacazette has done well so far. He fights off Fernandez, spreads it wide and then receives it back in the area, but his turn and shot is collected low by Fabianski.
63: CLOSE! Good ball from Bellerin into the box, but it's a fraction away from the head of Lacazette inside the six-yard box! Any touch and that would have been 3-1.
60: Lacazette holds it up well, knocks a long ball back for Ozil, who then finds Ramsey, but his left-footed effort is sliced over the bar under good pressure from van der Hoorn.
GOAL! ARSENAL 2-1 SWANSEA (Ramsey 58)
Total turnaround here with a trademark Arsenal goal.
Xhaka finds Kolasinac in acres on the left flank, and he spots Ramsey arriving into the box 10 yards out.
Kolasinac finds him well, and Ramsey's first-time finish with his left boot finds the bottom left corner! Fabianski wrong-footed. Fine goal.
ARSENAL 1-1 SWANSEA
57: CHANCE! What a delivery from Sanchez, plum on Koscielny's head, but he someone glances it wide! It almost hit his shoulder... WHAT a chance for the French defender.
55: Lovely touch around the corner by Lacazette, which forces van der Hoorn to bring down Ramsey.
Free-kick in a dangerous area for Arsenal now.
53: BALL IN THE NET! Straight away a chance for Swansea to regain their lead! Clucas mis-hits in the area, it falls to Abraham to finish, but he's just offside!
GOAL! ARSENAL 1-1 SWANSEA (Kolasinac 51)
Arsenal level! Huge relief around the Emirates.
It's good fighting from Lacazette in the box, his backheel finds Ozil, but his effort is blocked...
It falls into the path of Kolasinac on the left of the box, and he rifles it into the far corner past Fabianski! Fine finish.
ARSENAL 0-1 SWANSEA
49: Lacazette looks to find Ozil in the box, but Ki gets an important touch on it to change the flight of the ball.
47: Fer loses out to Swansea in a bad position, Xhaka has it at his feet and looks for Ramsey, but it's behind the Welshman and all momentum is lost. Poor.
46: Back underway in the second half...
HT: Arsenal out very early at the Emirates. Can they react here? How long until we see Olivier Giroud?
Swansea still holding on to their advantage at the break and are 5/2 with Sky Bet to collect all three points. The Gunners are odds-against at 11/10 with a draw 9/4. Tammy Abraham to score anytime has been been PRICE BOOSTED to 9/1 from 8/1. Get all the in-play odds here.
HT: That's the half, and quite a few dissenting voices from the home fans. Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are a goal down to Clucas' lovely finish, and despite having all of the ball, Arsenal are succumbing to a very stubborn and clever Swansea side.
45: SAVE! That's really poor from Mertesacker, and Swansea should be 2-0 up! He dwells on the ball, Ayew robs him and gets one-on-one with Cech, but this time the goalkeeper is decisive and rushes out.
Ayew tries to dink it over Cech, but he saves it well with his body!
44: Arsenal getting into third and fourth gear now. They win a corner on the left, taken by Sanchez, but Fer wins it brilliantly at the near post.
42: SAVE! Closest Arsenal have come! Sanchez gets into a trademark position on the left of the box, looks for the top corner with a fierce effort, but Fabianski makes a brilliant save!
The corner then comes to nothing after some pinball in the box. That has lifted the crowd slightly.
41: SHOT! It opens up for Clucas on the edge of the box, but he slicess it wide of the left-hand post.
40: Abraham gets one-on-one with Mertesacker with a hopeful punt up the pitch by Ayew. It's worrying for Arsenal that the young Swansea striker got ahead of the German despite the head-start.
38: Sanchez is so close to finding Ozil alone in the box, but the German can't stretch enough to get on the end of it.
36: Gareth Southgate is looking on here at the Emirates. He'll be impressed with Sam Clucas, Tammy Abraham and Alfie Mawson so far.
Interestingly, there's not a single Englishman on the pitch for Arsenal, with Holding, Macey, Walcott and Wilshere on the bench. Swansea have Carroll and Naughton also playing.
34: Ki skips away from Ramsey, looks for Ayew with a through ball, but it's inches away from the Swansea forward! Definitely a threat there on the break...
32: Swansea break! Abraham shows his blistering pace and gets into a good position to receive the ball through on goal if Ayew can find him, but his ball is too hefty and ahead of the striker!
Abraham wanted that on the floor! Missed opportunity...
30: One or two Arsenal fans actually have their head in their hands right now. That goal came out of absolutely nothing, and they have yet to really test Fabianski in the Swansea goal
28: Lovely, deft flick from Ozil into the path of Lacazette in the box, but Fabianski rushes out to collect at his feet. Good goalkeeping.
26: Close, intricate play inside the box by Arsenal. It's played to Kolasniac 12 yards out, his touch sets him up nicely but his left-footed effort is wayward.
24: Who was to blame there? Koscielny for the miscontrol? Bellerin at right-back for allowing Clucas to run off him? Or Cech for not rushing out with any decisiveness?
Or... maybe just a fantastic through ball by Abraham and lovely finish by Clucas? Let's go with that.
Surprise news from the Emirates and the Swans have been cut to 4/1 by Sky Bet for victory. Arsenal are still hot favourites and can be backed at 8/13 with a draw 7/2. Get all the in-play odds here.
GOAL! ARSENAL 0-1 SWANSEA (Clucas 22)
Swansea take a shock lead here! Despite having just 23 per cent of the ball...
Koscielny's miscontrol allows Abraham to get on the ball, and his first-time left-footed through ball to Clucas is inch perfect. What a ball.
Cech is stuck inbetween rushing out and staying put... he does neither, and Clucas tucks the ball through his legs from eight yards out!
ARSENAL 0-0 SWANSEA
21: Mawson is blocking everything so far. This time he gets in the way of Bellerin's fierce effort from the edge of the box. Monreal then has a go from the edge, but Naughton blocks this time.
19: Optimistic effort from Sanchez, 30 yards out from a tight angle on the left, and Fabianski watches it go harmlessly wide of his right-hand post.
17: Over 70 per cent of the ball to Arsenal, as you'd expect here. Patience the key so far as Swansea remain firm.
