Michael Laudrup: Feels Arsenal deserved victory

Jack Wilshere scored a superb winner for Arsenal with four minutes left of normal time, and it was no more than the hosts deserved.

Swansea had set up the replay with a late Danny Graham goal in the 2-2 draw and Laudrup had no complaints to be denied by a similarly late goal at the Emirates.

Laudrup said: "The first half was very even, they had a bit more of the ball but we were at the same level.

"In the second half they were the better team, they deserved the win and good luck in the competition.

"They created chances and pushed us back, we defended great but we couldn't get out of there.

"It was nice to see Michel Vorm back at his best and we blocked a couple of big chances.

"They had one or two where you say 'How did they miss that?', and then they scored with a few minutes left.

"Last time it was us, this time it was them."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
