Look away if you get queasy: Arsenal 2-2 Swansea highlights

Sixty seconds of glorious footballing saw goals from Podolski (assist from Gibbs) and Giroud (assist from Podolski), but this just wasn't enough to see off the Swans, who claimed a point when a Flamini own-goal in the last minute of regulation evened the score. Four minutes of stoppage-time didn't leave enough for the Gunners to find a last-gasp goal, and the dropped points all but end any last hopes of clawing back to the top of the Prem. So it goes. It's the third time we've followed a drubbing with a draw; here's hoping that the pattern holds for the second match after, which has been a win each time.
Whether it was the lingering effects of the Chelsea match, or perhaps a jaded look past Swansea to Man City on Saturday or further ahead to the FA Cup semifinal, we just didn't have it today. Pity.
