Premier League – Swansea shock Arsenal with goal-line technology winner
Premier League, Emirates Stadium – Arsenal 0 Swansea 1 (Gomis 85).
The France international, who scored his first ever Premier League goal against the Gunners last November, rose highest to head home Jefferson Montero‘s centre five minutes from the end of a game the Swans had rarely looked like winning.
Indeed, Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina thought he had kept Gomis’ header out, but technology rightly proved the ball had crossed the line.
It confirmed a dispiriting defeat for the hosts, whose hopes of automatic qualification for the Champions League group stages now look infinitely harder.
Arsenal had dominated much of the game, but after a lacklustre first-half they found former Gunners keeper Lukasz Fabianski in inspired form. The Polish international repelled repeated waves from the home side, his best moment coming when he deniedAlexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott in quick succession.
