Seventeen years to the day that Arsenal appointed Arsene Wenger as their manager, the great man got to see two delightful goals from his side in a 2-1 victory over Swansea in the English Premier League.

Serge Gnabry scored his first Premier League goal in only his second start for Arsenal, before that man Aaron Ramsey, who cannot stop scoring, made it 2-0.

Ben Davies reduced the deficit with a nicely-worked goal but it wasn't enough as Arsenal went back to the top of the Premier League, increasing their lead to two points from second-placed Tottenham. The Gunners now have 15 points from six games.

Arsenal came out with the same side that won 3-1 against Stoke last weekend, with Arsene Wenger not deciding to make any change.

Swansea were enforced to make a couple of changes due to the absences of Ashley Williams and Angel Rangel, and it was the Welsh side that showed more intent in the early part of the half.

However, Arsenal, most importantly, did have the more cutting edge, with the away side creating a fair amount of chances, despite losing out in the possession stats.

Olivier Giroud nearly came close to add to his tally, but his attempted flick from the near post after some good work from Kieran Gibbs, did not quite come off.

Per Mertesacker, who scored with his head in the game against Stoke, nearly made it two in two, but this time the header just went wide.

The in-form man Aaron Ramsey struck a shot just wide of the target as well as Arsenal looked to unlock the Swansea defence.

For all of Swansea's possession, they didn't really threaten Arsenal's goal, with Wojciech Szczesny hardly having a save to make in the first 45 minutes.

Arsenal were reasonably happy to let Swansea have the ball, while looking to break quickly when they did have possession.

The two left-footed playmakers - Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere - did not have the greatest of impact, though, and it was Arsenal's youngest player on the pitch - Serge Gnabry - who opened up the Swansea defence right on the stroke of halftime.

A direct and purposeful run saw allowed the young German to pick out Olivier Giroud in space, but the striker, surprisingly skewed his shot wide.

Arsenal started the second half with more purpose, with Gnabry firing an early warning shot. Then there was a period of play where Arsenal just kept the ball without really doing anything with it, before that flick was just switched on in the 58th minute.

A phase of around five or six passes, involving Giroud, Wilshere and Ozil was produced in less than five seconds before Ramsey found Gnabry in space with a nice little reverse pass. The 18-year-old German showed composure well beyond his years, taking a first touch before drilling it into the bottom corner.

Arsenal nearly made it 2-0 with a quick counter-attack, Ramsey again running things, and finding Ozil, whose shot was well saved by Michel Vorm.

The Gunners, though, were now in the mood and 2-0 it was on 62 minutes. Jack Wilshere did brilliantly to win a 50-50 with Jonathan De Guzman, before passing it to Giroud, who in turn backheeled and found Ramsey. The Welshman took a first touch to turn inside, before smashing the ball into the top corner for his eighth goal of the season, and four in four matches.

Swansea had a decent chance to pull one back when Wilshere gifted the ball to substitute Wilfried Bony, but the Ivory Coast international could not find a way past Szczesny.

However, Bony played a huge part in Swansea's goal with the striker involved in a neat one-two with Ben Davies, who did brilliantly to create the opening before slotting it in in the 82nd minute.

Arsenal though, saw off the rest of the eight minutes to pick up a club record eighth straight away league win.
