Manager Arsene Wenger feels winning the FA Cup would give Arsenal an "aura" once again.
The Gunners head to Swansea for Sunday's third-round tie aiming to keep alive hopes of finally ending their long run without silverware in 2013. A generation of players have passed through Wenger's squad since Patrick Vieira lifted the FA Cup seven-and-a-half years ago and the Arsenal boss accepts winning a trophy would change the mindset of the current squad.
"There is a change of course, there is an aura around the team that is built through the history of the team. That makes them feel strong together," he said.
