Arsene Wenger oversaw his 800th Premier League game on Saturday, with the Frenchman seeing his Arsenal side come from behind at the Emirates to beat Swansea 2-1.

The Gunners started well but, not for the first time, failed to make their superiority count.

On 22 minutes, the hosts were punished by a rare Swansea attack, with Sam Clucas firing past Petr Cech after a Tammy Abraham pass.

Jordan Ayew then missed a golden opportunity to put his side 2-0 up before the break, pouncing on a mistake by Per Mertesacker before seeing his effort saved by Cech.

Soon after the restart, Arsenal started their fightback, with the excellent Sead Kolasinac blasting home after some good interplay from the hosts.

On 58 minutes, the Gunners completed their comeback, with Aaron Ramsey netting his 50th goal for the north Londoners after a cut-back from Kolasinac.

The game would end in victory for Arsenal, a result which ends a turbulent week for the club after their heated AGM.
