Swansea striker Tammy Abraham thought that playing Liverpool was tougher than playing Arsenal.
Swansea played Liverpool and Arsenal back-to-back in the Premier League, and managed to win both games.
It was a huge boost to their survival hopes this season.
While their 1-0 win over Liverpool was a classic smash-and-grab, their 3-1 win over Arsenal was comprehensive and well-deserved.
So it’s no surprise that Abraham, on loan at Swansea from Chelsea, thought that the Liverpool game was harder.
“The Liverpool game was harder for us,” he told the Express.
“I was obviously at both games, the one against them I was injured for but I was fit for the Arsenal one.
“The boys dug in well and got the three points and that sets us in good stead for the rest of the season.”
Arsenal’s performance in Swansea was miserable.
The home side might have expected a tough night, but Arsenal’s limp attack made it easy for them to defend.
They were also generous enough to leave plenty of space for Swansea to counter attack.
Sam Clucas scored twice, and Petr Cech gifted Jordan Ayew with another goal.
Arsenal had taken the lead through Nacho Monreal, but it was against the run of play.
Abraham’s comments are damning, in as much as they reveal how easy it is to play against Arsenal now.
This is a team that sides no longer fear to take on at home.
The Swansea defeat was our sixth away from home this season.
