Arsenal held at the Emirates

Arsenal scored twice in the span of a minute, but were pegged back against Swansea City thanks to a Mathieu Flamini own goal at the death.

Swans forward Wilfried Bony opened the scoring at the Emirates with an 11th-minute header giving the visitors a surprising early lead.

The Gunners would storm back scoring through Lukas Podolski in the 73rd minute. And then again with Oliver Giroud a minute later to, apparently, complete the comeback.

But just 15 minutes later, disaster struck.

An own goal off of Flamini leveled the scoreline at 2-2 without sufficient time for Arsenal to fight for another winner.

Arsenal were unable to make the most of their 61% possession advantage and registered five more shots than the Swans.

The road back to challenging for the title may have been lost, as well. With Manchester City taking the three points at Old Trafford, the Gunners absolutely had to keep pace, but failed to do so.

Now Arsene Wenger’s men find themselves in fourth, a point behind City, but the Citizens have games in hand.
