Roberto Martinez has expressed his delight and caution at the prospect of a lucrative tie against Premiership side Liverpool in the 4th round of the FA Cup.
All that stands in Martinez's way is a tricky replay at Blue Square South side Havant and Waterlooville. The non league side held Swansea to a 1-1 draw at The Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
Spanish striker Guilliem Bauza will be relishing the prospect of facing his former Spanish under 20's World Cup team mate Fernando Torres.
The Premiership outfit were on course to progress safely into the 4th round after Peter Crouch put the Reds ahead on 74 minutes against Luton Town.
For all their resolve the Hatters could not find a breakthrough but after just 3 minutes the league one side were level thanks to a own goal from Norwegian John Arne Riise.
One Swansea player will be out to impress Rafa Benitez, Paul Anderson will be hoping to make an impression on the Spaniard as he looks to break into the first team at Anfeild.
There has been no official confirmation that Anderson will be ruled out from playing against his home club and it an issue that Swansea's manager Roberto Martinez and his Spanish counterpart Benitez had not contemplated.
Martinez Told The BBC
| 'It gives you a little bit more determination to try to get through.It's a difficult situation to talk about a possible game, we just need to make sure we get there.'|
It's a bit of a strange feeling really because it's a draw all Swansea City fans will be looking forward to, but at the moment, we've got too many things in front of us to lose concentration.'
We've got the replay, and a few games in front of it.'
I don't think they (Liverpool) looked into that beforehand and I think it will be too late to stop it.
It would be a dream draw for Paul being away from home and he's developed as a player and would be a great opportunity to go up to Anfield and show his standard at the moment.'
