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."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
