Arsenal vs. Swansea: FA Cup 3rd Round Replay Live Score, Highlights, Recap

Sam TigheWorld Football Tactics Lead WriterJanuary 16, 2013

The Emirates Stadium—London, England.


Arsenal 1-0 Swansea

Arsenal overcame a resilient Swansea side in dramatic fashion as Jack Wilshere scored the only goal.

It was sheer domination from the Gunners from start to finish, and Chico and Kyle Bartley played their part in a heroic defensive display.

Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott missed a glut of chances, with the latter in particular having an awful game, and when Bacary Sagna hit the post, it seemed like this game was never going to fall for them.

But Wilshere's thumping effort from 20 yards finally beat Michel Vorm in the Swansea goal in the 86th minute, and the Gunners march into the fourth round.
