Matt Banks e-mails in to say: 'Arsenal will have their work cut out tonight against a talented Swansea outfit. They will need to defend better than they did on Sunday & press Swansea from the off. This is our best chance of a trophy so really hoping for an early Gunners goal to settle the nerves.'
Here's some news on the odds for the game from Nigel Askham of Sky Bet: 'Having drawn 2-2 at the Liberty Stadium, Arsenal are strongly backed at 2/7 to qualify for the fourth round and are 8/15 to pull off the victory in 90 minutes. The Swans are out at 9/2 or 5/2 to qualify via extra-time or penalties. If you fancy home goals its 9/2 for Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud to both find the net.'
