Jack Wilshere fired Arsena l into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a superb late winner as the Gunners defeated Swansea 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
The England midfielder - out for more than a year with ankle and knee injuries before returning to action this season - capped a man-of-the-match display to finally beat inspired Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm with a 20-yard strike on 86 minutes to set up a trip to Brighton and keep alive hopes of Arsenal's first trophy since 2005.
The Gunners were much improved from the lacklustre 2-0 Barclays Premier League defeat to
Manchester City on Sunday and, but for a combination of poor finishing and brilliant defending, would have had tonight's replay wrapped up well before Wilshere's fine late effort.
With France striker Olivier Giroud returned to the starting line-up and England forward Theo Walcott switched back to the right flank, Arsenal opened up full of the kind of movement which had been lacking against City.
