To the best of our knowledge, for the first time ever Premier League highlights have been uploaded onto an official YouTube channel days after the match was played.

Online streaming rights for Premier League matches are usually extremely tightly controlled, however there appears to be a break in the norm this Friday as Swansea City have uploaded short highlights of their 2-2 draw at Arsenal on YouTube.

It’s worth pointing out the highlights of Arsenal 2 – Swansea 2 are not available for embedding, while it’s unclear if any geo-restrictions are placed on the video.

Could this be the first indication that the Premier League will finally allow clubs to upload match highlights onto the world’s leading internet video site? We can only hope so.
