Arsenal and Swansea Stage a Premiership Goalfest

After a couple weeks' break for international play, the Premiership is back with loads of goals on offer.

North London hosted five of them in a close encounter, as the Arsenal edged Swansea, 3-2.

It took 26 minutes to light up the scoreboard, which is when Theo Walcott -- the Premiership's thunderbolt -- tapped in the first one:

Also as usual, Mesut Özil made amends for the defense’s mistake:

Arsenal's deadly duo strikes again.

Borja did his bit in the 66th minute to keep things close:

But not close enough.
