For the second game running Arsenal's back five shut down an attack that was supposed to be a major threat.
Wojciech Szczesny and Thomas Vermaelen were rested against Munich and one would have expected them to return to their respective spots in the starting lineup. That wasn't the case.
Swansea's only real moment of danger came through a moment of creativity from Michu while Bayern Munich had Arjen Robben's chance on Wednesday.
So what will Arsene Wenger do when the international break is over?
Carl Jenkinson dealt with the world-class Robben and Swansea's talented wide-men while providing an attacking outlet. On the other hand, Bacary Sagna hasn't been in good form this season .
Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker were solid again, though the issue of Mertesacker's lack of pace remains. Vermaelen can help the pace issue but has been shocking in his positional at times.
Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal are equally good options at left-back and both have performed well when called upon.
Lukasz Fabianski was again assured in goal though he had little to deal with.
With every game being one of maximum importance Arsenal need's its best performers on the pitch.
The defensive players that played against Bayern Munich and Swansea are the Gunners best bet on current form.
