Arsenal have never gone out of the FA cup at this stage since Arsene Wenger took the reins over 16 years ago. The Arsenal players have no intention of starting now, and the words of Le Prof in the build up to this ghame will have left them in no doubt that this game is vital for the club.
Swansea have home advantage and a passionate crowd. They also have the confidence of having beat us 2-0 a month ago. Arsenal have got much better since then, and Swansea are bound to have one eye on the Capital One cup tie against Chelsea on Wednesday. They have never been to a final at Wembley and that is surely their best chance.
Arsenal have almost a full strength squad to choose from and should be raring to go. Wenger wants to win to keep building the confidence of the team and he knows that this competition is the best chance of a trophy for the Gunners. Arsenal have a great history in the FA cup, our 10 victories just one behind the 11 of Manchester United.
Laudrup has done Arsenal a favour by resting the top scorer Michu, Rangel and the captain Ashley Williams.
