Victory for the Gunners in Arsene Wenger’s 800th Premier League match in charge means champions Chelsea, who play in the day’s late kick-off at Bournemouth, must win to retake fourth place in the table.

Swansea, playing without injured striker Wilfried Bony, midfielder Renato Sanches and defender Martin Olsson, took the lead in the 22nd minute against the run of play, when Sam Clucas raced into the area and slotted the ball neatly beneath Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Bosnian left back Kolasinac equalised in the 51st minute, before Ramsey put the home side ahead in the 58th with his third goal of the season.
