Graham earns Swans win over Arsenal

Swansea come from behind to beat Gunners in thrilling match

Scott Sinclair scored Swansea's first goal from the penalty spot

Swansea 3-2 Arsenal

Danny Graham's goal proved the winner as Swansea came from behind to beat Arsenal in an end-to-end encounter in the Barclays Premier League.

Arsenal went in front through Robin van Persie's 18th League goal of the season after less than five minutes, but Scott Sinclair equalised from the spot shortly after and the home side went ahead through Nathan Dyer just after half-time.

Theo Walcott fired Arsenal level just after Gunners legend Thierry Henry had come off the bench for his Barclays Premier League return, but Graham scored from a tight angle less than a minute later to make it 3-2.
