Gunners Progress Over Swans

Arsenal deservedly advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Swansea City on Wednesday.

The Gunners, who next face Brighton in the competition, progressed thanks to Jack Wilshere's 86th minute goal at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal were the better side from the onset, although they struggled to break the Swans down in the opening stanza.

The visitors nearly drew first blood in the 25th minute, as Kyle Bartley headed against the bar from close range.

At the other end, Thomas Vermaelen's low shot was kept out by the impressive Michel Vorm on the stroke of half-time.

Arsene Wenger's men raised the temp after the interval, as the likes of  Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Wilshere drew countless stops from Vorm, with Swansea also twice clearing off the line.

The north Londoners, however, were eventually rewarded for their dominance when Wilshere fired home from the edge of the area after being released by Giroud late on.
