Arsenal 0-1 Swansea: Vote for Player Ratings/MotM

At times, it looked more like we were facing a rugby side than a proper footballing one; when our players weren't being dragged or kicked, they were so preoccupied with anticipating the grapples that they flopped and dived around a bit. Swansea had some of the better chances of the first half, but we went into halftime locked in a scoreless draw. The frustrations continued through the early stages of the second half. Despite keeping close to 70% possession, we struggled to carve out many clear chances or do much with those we did find. Twice in the late stages, Fabiański denied us from close range--Alexis and Cazorla failing to pierce him. Things went from bad to worse moments later when Gomis headed home in the 85th minute. Four minutes of stoppage time were not enough for us to salvage a draw. At home. When a win might have sent us second with a game still in hand over City. We'll have to pick over the ramifications of this one later. For now, give our lads what they deserve in the ratings poll below...

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. The result is a frustrating that dents our dream of securing a second-place finish.
