Tepid Arsenal sunk by late Gomis header

Arsenal’s hopes of catching Manchester City for second place in the Premier League suffered a setback after a late Bafetimbi Gomis header, verified by goalline technology, handed Swansea City a 1-0 win at the Emirates.

Substitute Gomis struck five minutes from time, meeting Jefferson Montero’s cross with a header that crossed the line before it was scooped out by keeper David Ospina, the goal confirmed almost immediately to the referee by the goal-line technology system. Frenchman Gomis also scored the winner when Swansea beat Arsenal 2-1 at home in November. Arsenal, who have three games left to play, remain on 70 points, three points behind City who have two games left. Manchester United, in fourth, have 68 points with the top three securing automatic entry into the Champions League group stage. United hosts Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.
