That's it! Arsenal's 10-match unbeaten run is over and they can thank former goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski for ending their streak. The Polish goalkeeper enjoyed a sensational second half to deny his former employers, while substitute Bafetimbi Gomis provided the winner with a towering header.

Arsenal's hopes of clinching second place have suffered a telling blow this evening and while they still have a game in hand over Manchester City, they will be travelling to Old Trafford on Sunday without that momentum that has carried them so brilliantly.


Arsenal 0-1 Swansea City

Seconds left for Arsenal to find a goal...

Ozil prods a pass through to Sanchez who clips a hopeful ball into the six yard area but that ex-Gunner in the Swansea goal is out to confidently claim.

Monreal now cuts inside, looking to stretch the Swansea's backline, playing the ball back out for Wilshere to drive a cross into the box but once again, Fabianski can collect.

Sanchez tries his luck from the edge of the area but again Fabianski is again equal to it. Four minutes of added time to go.

One minute of normal time left at the Emirates for Arsenal to rescue this.

At a first look, it looked as if Ospina had saved that, but assistant referee Kevin Friend felt his watch buzz and awarded the goal. Thank God for goal line technology, eh?

Swansea have the lead! Montero surges forward down the right and heads towards the byline, ignoring Shelvey on the edge of the box. He lifts a precise cross into Gomis who towers above his marker and nods towards goal. Ospina leaps across to his post and thinks he has done enough to claw the ball out, the linesman awards the goal!

Goal! Arsenal 0-1 Swansea (Bafetimbi Gomis, 85)

Seven minutes left of normal time left at the Emirates.

Sanchez finds a gap and tries to jink his way into the box but Williams, who has been excellent all evening, forces him wide and forces the corner.

And a third! The ball bounces into path of Cazorla who lashes one on target but Fabianski again denies him. Arsenal should have done much better with all these chances, but Fabianski deserves much praise for keeping his side in this.

Fabianski saves again! Arsenal prob , and probe before Ramsey clips a ball in for Sanchez who really should score, but instead fires straight at the goalkeeper. The rebound cannons off Fernandez and falls to Walcott but he too is denied by the former Arsenal goalkeeper!

Fabianski denies Monreal! The Spanish full back makes an excellent run up the left and is eventually picked out by a wonderful pass from Sanchez. From a tight angle he fires across goal but is denied by his former teammate.

Cazorla takes the resulting corner but it';s another rubbish one and the Polish goalkeeper collects.

Now another change for Swansea as Batetimbi Gomis, having missed the last three games with a hamstring problem, comes on for Ki.

Bellerin now tentatively dances his way in from the right and cuts a pass across to the near post. It almost breaks the Walcott but the ball is quickly hacked away by Fernandez. You feel an Arsenal goal is coming.

Cazorla now tries to curl one for the far corner but Williams again makes a crucial block, diverting the ball out for a corner. Sanchez takes it, but his deliver is poor.

Wilshere's first involvement sees him try to thread a ball through from deep for Giroud, but it just evades the Frenchman who will now make way for Theo Walcott.

First change of the evening for Arsenal as Jack Wilshere comes onto replace Coquelin.

Arsenal are cranking up the pressure here. A cross is lifted into the box but Sanchez can only, somehow, head it away from goal. No matter, Cazorla is back on it, taking the ball down with wonderful control and pushing into the box. Swansea players are afraid to put a foot in at risk of tripping the Spaniard, who clips a shot on goal but Fabianski does well to save and collect at the second time of asking.

Ramsey twists and turns inside the right of the box, looking for the space to shoot. He finds it eventually, but can only blast into the side netting.

Swansea have a problem as Angel Rangel hobbles off. He is unable to continue and Jazz Richards comes onto replace him.

Shelvey tries to hold onto the ball for too long on the edge of his own box and predictably loses possession. Swansea almost pays for that as Giroud tries a snapshot just inside the box but Fabianksi saves.

This game is finally coming to life a bit. Ramsey does brilliantly up the byline to deceive Jack Cork but makes a mess of his cross. Swansea respond by racing up the other end, freeing Dyer in acres of space down the right. He tries to find Ki whose broken free in the box but Mertesacker gets their first and intercepts.

Giroud meets a raking long ball with a beautiful flick into the path that Sanchez is onto in a flash. He muscles off a challenge from Fernandez inside the right of the box but can only find the side netting with his shot.

Arsenal come alive, freeing Bellerin down the right. The Spaniard is in behind Montero and drills one across goal towards Giroud but Williams just about gets it behind for a corner. The ball comes in, but again, it's a poor one and nothing comes from it.

Nothing comes from that corner and we are back to square one.

Montero glides past Mertesacker who has been forced wide and the Ecuadorian rolls a precise pass to Ki on the edge of the box. He shapes to shoot first time but instead takes a touch, with his resulting effort deflecting out for a corner.

Lots and lots of stray passes from both sides in these opening minutes of the second half. This is not a good watch at the minute.

And we are back underway for the second half at the Emirates.


Arsenal 0-0 Swansea

Montero is tackled well by Bellerin but the Ecuadorian perseveres and wins the ball back, nipping past Ramsey in the process. He drives on goal cutting in from the right with space opening up in front of him, but he can only drill a poor effort wide of the near post. That will be that for the first half.

Sanchez hooks a sweeping pass over the top to try and find Ramsey, who has made a brilliant run inside Williams, but Fabianksi is quickly off his line to collect.

No groans around the Emirates yet as this tepid first half draws to an end. It has been a bit flat, though.

Now Ozil drills a pass into the feet of Giroud on the edge of the box and, having had no luck in the box, opts to take on a shot outside of it. He may not have bothered, however, as his effort sails harmlessly wide.

Giroud tries to play winger and lifts in a cross from the left that is so over hit Bellerin has to chase it down on the other side. He works the ball back in and Cazorla tries a snap shot inside a congested penalty area but Williams makes the crucial block.

Ki slides the ball onto Shelvey on the break but it's underhit, prompting the former Liverpool man to slide in rashly and foul Cazorla. Unsurprisingly, he is booked.

Arsenal win a free kick and a brief bit of panic almost sees Koscielny in but the referee has already blown the whistle having caught Olivier Giroud trying to suplex Williams.

Not much happening at the minute. Sort it out, lads.

Shelvey takes the free kick, but it's woefully over hit and Ospina collects.

Montero v Bellerin has potential. This time the Swansea man gets the better, brilliantly turning the Spaniard before winning a free kick over on the left.

Cazorla whips the resulting free kick into the box but it passes by everyone and Fabianksi collects. Sanchez is appealing for a penalty after Williams seemed to tug on his shoulder for a brief moment, but the ref isn't interested.

Giroud is down again after Fernandez catches him in the small of the back with a raised knee. The Frenchman looks in some pain but is back on his feet and gingerly hobbles off for more treatment.

Ozil collects the ball just inside Swansea's half and sweeps a wonderful ball over into the inside left channel for Sanchez to scamper onto, but the Chilean is ruled offside.

Rangel loses possession, inviting Arsenal forward down the inside left. The ball is floated into Ramsey who has made a run into the box but he doesn't judge the flight of the ball well enough and can only connect with a floating header that is easily dealt with.

Ramsey breaks that as he clips a delicate ball over for Giroud but it's over hit and Fabianski can collect.

Arsenal enjoying a spell of possession at the moment, carefully probing in front of the Swansea defence.

Sanchez brilliantly turns away from Fernandez inside his own half but is clipped by the Swans centre half to concede a free kick.

Both Giroud and Williams are back on after trotting off to receive a bit of treatment following their clash.

Ozil curls one on goal but it accidentally cannons off the face of Mertesacker, who made a run across the Swansea wall. Back to the training ground on that one, then.

Ozil and Sanchez stand over the free kick.

Williams stretches to win the ball on the edge of the Arsenal box but Giroud gets their first, nipping the ball away before he is caught by the trailing leg of the Wales international. Both men are down for a minute after a nasty clash of knees, and Williams looks to have come off the worse of the two.

Shelvey has a go with his obligatory effort from the half way line, but it sails harmlessly over the bar.

Swansea come forward as Dyer and Ki exchange passes down the right before Shelvey takes over. He plays a neat ball into the path of the onrushing Rangel who slams a shot on goal, but it is comfortable enough for Ospina to save at his near post.

Cazorla tries to free Giroud in space down the inside right but his raking pass is slightly over hit and the ball rolls out of play.

Ramsey drives forward and plays a neat one two with Ozil, receiving a pass back down the inside right flank. He clips a first time cross into the box for Giroud but he can't keep his header down and nods just over the bar.

Swansea launch a throw in straight into the path of Cazorla who moves the ball to Sanchez, but the Chilean is felled by a crunching challenge from Shelvey. He may have got a slight touch on the ball, but not without crashing through the Arsenal man. Free kick.

And Arsenal get us underway at the Emirates.

Five minutes from kick and the teams are waiting to make their way out onto the pitch. Hugs and hand shakes all round for Lukasz Fabianski, who left the Gunners last summer.

After Manchester City put six past Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, a win for Arsenal tonight will not be enough for them to climb back into second place. Manuel Pellegrini's side currently hold an eight goal advantage over the Gunners but will have played one game more by the end of the night.

Arsenal will fancy their chances of reducing that deficit. After Sunday's trip to Manchester United, the Gunners see out their season at home to Sunderland and West Brom.

City meanwhile will travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea next weekend before welcoming Southampton to the Etihad Stadium on the final day of the season.

For the record, this is now five games where Arsene Wenger has opted for the same XI, a run of four wins and one draw.

Arsene Wenger sticks with his winning formula, making no changes to the side that beat Hull City last time out. That means there is a start for Aaron Ramsey despite doubts over his fitness, and another start at right back for Hector Bellerin.

Garry Monk has made just one change to his side that beat Stoke City as Ki comes in for the injured Oliveira, who is ruled out with an ankle problem. Gomis is fit again after a hamstring problem, but can only make the bench.

BREAKING: Ki Sung-Yueng comes in for the injured Nelson Oliveira in Swansea's only change.

Swansea team to face Arsenal: Fabianski, Rangel, Fernandez, Williams (capt), Taylor, Ki, Shelvey, Cork, Sigurdsson, Montero, Dyer

Subs: Tremmel, Richards, Britton, Grimes, Barrow, Emnes, Gomis

BREAKING: Aaron Ramsey starts in midfield for Arsenal

Arsenal team to face Swansea: Ospina, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud

Subs: Szczesny, Gibbs, Gabriel, Flamini, Wilshere, Rosicky, Walcott

Arsenal news: Arsene Wenger described Aaron Ramsey's chances of featuring tonight as 50-50 last Friday. With a trip to Old Trafford to come on Sunday, there are likely to be no chances taken on the Wales international, who suffered a leg injury at Hull.

Swansea news: Jordi Amat will not play for the rest of the season having suffered a broken metatarsal while Nelson Oliveira is unavailable up front with an ankle problem. That void will be filled by Bafetimbi Gomis, however, who is back after a three game absence due to a hamstring injury.

It hasn't been a bad old season for Arsenal, has it? With another FA Cup final already in the bag, the Gunners can close in on a Premier League runners' up spot with a win over Swansea City this evening.

That spot is currently filled by Manchester City and their superior goal difference is likely to ensure Arsenal remain in third whatever happens at the Emirates tonight. But with another game in hand after tonight and two of their final three taking place at home, Arsene Wenger will fancy his chances of claiming second spot.

Kick-off is just over an hour away and we will have all your confirmed team news as it reaches us.
