Arsenal collapsed for the second time this week after Swansea came from behind to win 2-1 at Liberty Stadium.

The Gunners forward Alexis Sanchez broke the deadlock before Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled and Bafetimbi Gomis netted a 78th-minute winner.

Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals after a dramatic final 20 minutes.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour (@RealRomfordPele) wants to know if Wenger will protect his side’s lead: “Great counter for the goal. What can wenger do to make sure we hold onto this? Reply using #AfcLive”

Gunners legend Ian Wright (@IanWright0) hails Sigurdsson’s strike: “So annoying! That’s a great goal.”

Spurs legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) is impressed with the Iceland international’s strike: “Fabulously struck, perfectly placed free kick from Sigurdsson.”

Former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill (@Tim_Cahill): “Wow great freekick and now that @SwansOfficial are on fire. Arsenal just pressed the self destruct button.”

Ex-Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot (@MarioMelchiot) praises Swansea’s super sub: “Super sub. GOAL! #Swans 2-1 #AFC Gomis heads home from 8 yards. Arsenal concede late again. #mmlove”

Former USA defender Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) wonders if Wenger enjoys his job: “Do you think the #AFC job still holds any element of fun for Wenger? I hope it does.”

Arsenal legend David Seaman ([email protected]) is frustrated with the number of goals the Gunners are conceding: “Not happy, we are conceding too many goals at important times of the game!!!! #gamemanagement!!”

Finally, celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) gives us the final result: “Paul Merson 2, Arsene Wenger 1.”
