Swansea climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone for the first time in three months as Petr Cech’s dreadful clanger helped condemn Arsenal to a 3-1 defeat at the Liberty Stadium.
Cech’s scuffed kick allowed Jordan Ayew to roll home a 61st-minute goal after Sam Clucas had put Swansea on level terms, instantly cancelling out Nacho Monreal’s first-half opener.
Clucas netted his second goal three minutes from time to finish off Arsenal.
The defeat for Arsenal was a good news for Liverpool which overcame disappoint of a defeat in their last game with an easy 3-0 win over Huddersfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s men dominated possession against their opponents and from the moment Emre Can rocketed home a long-range opener in the 26th minute the result was never in doubt.
Roberto Firmino extended Liverpool’s lead on the stroke of half-time when he somehow squeezed the ball home from the goal-line after being played in by a clever Sadio Mane back-heel.
Klopp had left £75m man Virgil van Dijk on the bench but the decision was rendered almost irrelevant as the hosts continued in cruise control, Mohamed Salah completing the scoring from the penalty spot after Can was tripped up in the box.
