Arsenal's hopes of closing on the Premier League top four have been dented by Swansea City in an enthralling 精彩迷人的 match at the Liberty Stadium.

The Gunners took an early lead 先进一球 with a well-taken Robin van Persie goal, but The Swans recovered from conceding 失球 the early goal and then losing a 2-1 lead to secure a famous 3-2 victory 胜利

Swansea's first triumph over Arsenal since February 1982, elevates(排名)提升到 the team into the top 10 of the Premiership. The team's manager, Brendan Rodgers, said his players showed great courage and resolve 勇气和决心 to beat Arsenal.

He said: "The players deserve all the credit - the courage they showed to keep showing for the ball, to keep playing under severe pressure and against top players."

He added: "We were talked about as having the swagger without the substance(喻)看着很强,但没有实质能力 but hopefully over these opening months we've shown that we're going to be here to fight."

However the match wasn't without controversy. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, has blamed a combination of bad defending 糟糕的防守 and poor refereeing 裁判误判 for his team's defeat.

He said: "We lost because we played against a good team, we were unlucky because we got a penalty that was not a penalty, and we made mistakes… for a team with our experience and ambition it is difficult to explain."

It has left him musing 沉思 on a third defeat 挫败 in the Gunners' last four Premier League away matches.
