Swansea — Mesut Ozil set up two goals as Arsenal used a second-half barrage to beat Swansea 3-0 Saturday in the Premier League.

After a hesitant first half, Olivier Giroud broke the deadlock by heading in Ozil's corner in the 49th minute for the 2,000th goal Arsenal has scored under manager Arsene Wenger.

Laurent Koscielny then doubled the lead in the 68th despite protests from the home team that Giroud had fouled goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in the buildup, and Joel Campbell marked his first Premier League start by slotting in the third in the 73rd after being set up by Ozil.

The win keeps Arsenal tied with leader Manchester City, but still behind on goal difference.
