Arsenal fans back title challenge after Gunners see off Swansea

Arsenal fans could barely contain their delight after seeing their side dispatch of Swansea this afternoon to further add to their title credentials.

The Gunners are joint-top of the table with Manchester City on 25 points after 11 games thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Joel Campbell.

After a tricky first half, Arsenal finally broke the deadlock after the interval through Giroud, and from then on it was comfortable for Arsene Wenger's side as they strolled to victory. Bafetimbi Gomis had a late chance to grab a consolation goal for Swansea but he couldn't convert as Garry Monk's side slipped to their fourth defeat in their last seven games.

The win was made all the more impressive by the fact that it was achieved without both Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who picked up injuries in the mid-week Capital One Cup defeat against Sheffield Wednesday.

Talk soon turned to whether Arsenal could go all the way this season for the first time since 2004, with none other than Tottenham legend Gary Lineker suggesting this could well be their year.

He tweeted: "I think Arsenal could well win the league. There, I've said it."

His remarks sparked a deluge of responses, and it certainly seems as though the Arsenal faithful believe this season could have something special in store, especially with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea out of sorts.

Their quality will certainly be tested in their upcoming fixtures, with an away trip to Bayern Munich to come on Wednesday, before a north London derby showdown against Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium next weekend.
