Wilshere wins it for Gunners

Published 1 Comments

Jack Wilshere fired Arsenal into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a superb late winner in a 1-0 win over Swansea 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 the replay wrapped up well before Wilshere's fine late effort.
