The Gunners made it six Premier League wins in a row, with a brace from Theo Walcott and a goal from Mesut Ozil proving enough though Swansea twice pulled within one, through Gylfi Sigurdsson in the first half and Borja Baston in the second.
Granit Xhaka is doing nothing to dispel the notion that he's something of a hot head.
However, Xhaka gifted Swansea a route back into the game when he stumbled during a stepover and Sigurdsson pounced to curl a lovely effort into the top-left corner.
The Wales international's first-half goals took his tally to five in four games for club and country as Mark Hughes' men secured a 2-0 triumph in their eighth league fixture and, at least temporarily, moved out of the bottom three.
"We could never capitalise on the two-goal cushion but at least we got the three points", said Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager.

Kurds attack ISIS-held town as Mosul battle rages
The militants have put up fierce resistance in villages surrounding the city, where most of the fighting has been concentrated. The extremist group has suffered a string of defeats over the past year, and Mosul is its last major urban bastion in Iraq.
Bradley's first game in charge was always going to draw heightened interest.
Jack Cork's poor headed clearance from a corner fell straight at the feet of the England global, who drilled home on the spin.
"It's a proud moment to walk out there today, for sure", the 58-year-old Bradley said. That bodes well for their future. Much has already been made of the way the speedy winger has looked rejuvenated for the Gunners after moving back out to the right flank, but his strong club form only served to highlight two disappointing performances for England during the worldwide break.
City had two penalties saved - by Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero either side of halftime - and needed a 72nd-minute goal by substitute Nolito to earn a point from a game it dominated. His second was especially well-taken, with a quick touch to control the ball before swiveling and firing into the net.
He said: "He could have had a hat-trick, maybe even four". I am really looking forward to Wednesday now.
The former Real Madrid player was very good on the ball throughout the game and was picked up in the box by Alexis Sanchez and hit it on the volley to make it 3-1 to the Gunners after the 57 minute.
Next up for Arsenal is a home tie against Ludogorets in the Champions League, before hosting Middlesbrough in their next league game.
