PHOTO: Arsenal players blame each other after conceding to Swansea

Arsenal Emirates 3

All was not well at Arsenal 45 minutes into their home encounter with Swansea.

Following a six goal mauling away to Chelsea at the weekend, Arsenal's players had an immediate chance to repay manager Arsene Wenger and supporters against Swansea.

A home encounter that was an absolute must-win if the club still harbour title aspirations, the Gunners went 1-0 down after just 11 minutes.

Goalscorer Wilfried Bony was a striker loosely linked with the club last summer before signing with Swansea, and his header to put the away side in front was his 20th goal of the seasons in all competitions.

As seen from the photo above in the aftermath of the goal, Arsenal's players were left frustrated at conceding, with Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looking at each other with bemusement.

The body language of Per Mertesacker also says a lot about where the club are at right now, with the club desperate to avoid a loss which would represent a confidence blow almost as damaging as the defeat to Chelsea at the weekend.
