Wilfried Bony's late header secured a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on Sunday to leave Swansea with a trip to either Crawley, Bristol Rovers or Birmingham in the fourth round.

Michael Laudrup's side won the Capital One Cup last season, knocking out Chelsea in the semi-finals, and De Guzman fancies another final date at Wembley.

"We will be ready for the next round," said De Guzman. "If we can beat Manchester United, we can beat anyone.

"We have had a taste of Wembley and we are kind of getting used to it. It would be great to get there in another competition."

United have been struggling at home in recent weeks and De Guzman acknowledged the negativity at Old Trafford helped to spur Swansea to success.

"You could tell their fans weren't pleased when they played the ball backwards and we used that to our advantage," said the 26-year-old.

"You could feel it (edginess in the stadium). The fans wanted to win.

"They are at home. Their crowd is an extra man. But if they are turning their backs or things are not going well and the team is not playing the way they should, as an opposition player you have to use that.

"You could hear the fans booing at the end of the game and when they played the ball backwards we knew that as well."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
