Jack Wilshere: Helped Arsenal to edge out Swansea in third round replay

The England midfielder netted the only goal of the game on Wednesday as Arsenal edged out Swansea in a third round replay.

The Gunners will face Championship opposition at the next stage, with a trip to Brighton awaiting Arsene Wenger's troops.

Wilshere is aware of the importance of piecing together a positive cup run, with Arsenal having gone eight years since they last secured major silverware.

He said: "We had a lot of chances in the second half and couldn't put it in. Luckily I was there at the end to do that.

"We know what the FA Cup means to people at the club, it's a great competition and we wanted to be in the next round."

Wilshere is also pleased that his 86th minute effort saw Arsenal avoid the need for extra-time against Swansea, with an important Premier League fixture against capital rivals Chelsea next on their agenda.

He added: "I don't think I'll hit one like that again. It was a great set-up from Olivier Giroud and it was important that we got the goal.

"We didn't want extra-time with the tough game coming up at the weekend."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
