FULL-TIME

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Arsenal move back into the top four of the Premier League by thrashing Swansea, who sink to the bottom of the table.

Only way is up for Paul Clement, who has plenty of work to do.

Thanks for joining me.

CLOSE!

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Swansea's two subs combine and nearly get a consolation.

Oliver McBurnie sends a cross into the box for Borja Baston, but the Spaniard's stooped header goes narrowly over the bar.

THREE added minutes for Swansea to find FOUR goals.

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Game ebbing away now. Lots heading out of the stadium to beat the traffic.

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Pea roller.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's run looks promising, but his shot runs out of juice and is straight into the hands of Petr Cech.

The Arsenal goalkeeper had about two weeks to collect that.

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Arsenal close to a fifth, but Granit Xhaka's drive is well saved by Lukasz Fabianski.

Alexis Sanchez is sitting on the step next to the dugout with a coat over his head.

He is not happy for some reason.

Did he want to stay on?

BBC Sport Wales at the Liberty Stadium

This is getting embarrassingly easy for Arsenal.

For Swansea, all that hope from the first half has well and truly vanished by now.

A few home fans are still trying to keep spirits up with some chants, but their sorry beats of the drums are being drowned out by the roars of the visiting Gunners supporters.

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Alex Iwobi has had a field day in the second half and almost puts Alexis Sanchez in again, but the ball does not come down quickly enough for the Chilean and the home defenders can clear.

GOAL - Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez

Getting ugly for the Swans.

Paul Clement is shellshocked.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain finds space on the left and cuts the ball back towards the penalty area in search of Aaron Ramsey.

Wayne Routledge, looking to help out, gets a toe on it and the ball falls nicely for Alexis Sanchez, who tucks home from close range.

All four goals that Swansea have conceded today should have been avoided, but when your luck is out...

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-3 Arsenal

A double change from Paul Clement.

Off come Fernando Llorente and Jack Cork, while Borja Baston and Olivier McBurnie enter the action.

Chucking it down at the Liberty. I bet those two wish they had been allowed to stay on the bench.

Swansea 0-3 Arsenal

With Hull beating Bournemouth at the moment, Swansea are heading to the bottom of the table.

What a huge job Paul Clement has on his hands.

Looking for a fourth, Granit Xhaka smashes a shot over the bar.

GOAL - Swansea 0-3 Arsenal

Kyle Naughton

Oh dear, another own goal.

It is Alex Iwobi involved once again, dancing this way and that to fool Federico Fernandez.

Iwobi then has the composure to put the ball into the box, but the unfortunate Kyle Naughton sticks his leg out and diverts the ball into his own net.

Glum faces all around the Liberty Stadium now...apart from the Arsenal fans obviously.

Swansea 0-2 Arsenal

Swansea pushing forward in an attempt to get back into the game.

Gylfi Sigurdsson plays the ball into the feet of Wayne Routledge, who turns and shoots over the bar, via Laurent Koscielny's boot.

From the corner, the ball falls nicely into the path of Federico Fernandez inside the area, but the Swansea centre-back sidefoots his shot over.

To make matters worse, he has to trudge all the way back to his position at the other end of the pitch.

Swansea 0-2 Arsenal

It has taken a while but Swansea force Petr Cech into another save.

This time is is Wayne Routledge's low shot which the Czech Republic man can gather without any problems.

Swansea 0-2 Arsenal

Olivier Giroud is back on the bench and is having his toe examined by the physio.

He cuts the end of his sock off to access it.

Some people get all the best jobs. 😁😁

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-2 Arsenal

Olivier Giroud lasts an hour and is now coming off. On comes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-2 Arsenal

Paul Clement's reaction to that goal is to take off Nathan Dyer and he sends on Leroy Fer.
