Swansea's Michu scores past Wojciech Szczesny.
GK Wojciech Szczesny (7/10)
Wojciech Szczesny could do little about either of Swansea's two goals and made a couple of decent stops to keep their tally down.
At a time when Arsenal's defence seems to be increasingly porous, the Pole's consistency between the sticks is a source of some comfort to Gunners fans.
DR Bacary Sagna (6/10)
Bacary Sagna had another difficult game against Swansea, although unlike in the match at Southampton, it was not entirely his own fault.
Theo Walcott was ostensibly playing in front of him as a right winger, but his constant movement inside meant that Sagna was often isolated, lacking an outlet in front of him when in possession as well as support when defending.
CB Laurent Koscielny (6/10)
Picked ahead of the rested Thomas Vermaelen, Koscielny was the more impressive of Arsenal's centre-back pairing.
That said, his most crucial contribution came at the other end of the field, hooking a corner back in to supply Lukas Podolski with the ammunition to thump home Arsenal's equaliser.
CB Per Mertesacker (4/10)
Per Mertesacker has been one of Arsenal's most reliable performers this season, but this was not one of his most assured displays. Both Danny Graham and later Michu gave him problems, and he won't be pleased with the ease with which the Spaniard skipped past him for Swansea's opener.
Mertesacker had missed a couple of Arsenal games with a stomach bug. After this performance, he'll be feeling a little sick for entirely different reasons.
DL Kieran Gibbs (9/10)
Kieran Gibbs attacked with real gusto throughout the ninety minutes. With Aaron Ramsey stationed in front of him, the onus was on Gibbs to provide width, and he did that throughout the match, showcasing his impressive pace and stamina.
His goal was just reward for such a gutsy display, volleying home with tremendous power in identical fashion to Lukas Podolski's wonder-strike against Montpellier. He will do well to score a better goal in his Arsenal career.
