Not sure if their pace in doing so will quell some of the calls for Arsène Wenger to step down, but Swans ultimately became just another paving stone in Arsenal’s path to regaining a spot in the Champions League.

Dudes grabbed all three points in a 2-1 victory that was farther from the done deal as it appears in print.
