FA Cup Report - Swansea City 2-2 Arsenal

Danny Graham scored another late equaliser, this time to deny Arsenal a place in the FA Cup 4th Round having gone 2-1 in front after Michu's opener.

Much has been said this week about Graham's future at the club, as he has spoken out that he isn't too pleased at not getting regular games for Swansea City, but he has netted 3 goals in 3 games, and he's either selling himself in the shop window or proving to Laudrup that he wants - and has the quality - to be the man to plau up top and support Michu.

After a first half that lacked any meaningful goal-mouth action, the second half saw all the attacking play and incidents, and it was Michu who came on after the break to change the game in the host's favour.

The Spaniard came on 10 minutes after the restart, and having barely tied his boot-laces together, he found the back of the net after leaving Mertesacker chasing his shadow. He knocked the ball on just inside the opposition's half before cooly slotting it home.

Arsenal battled back however, dominating the next half an hour and put the Swansea defence under heavy pressure. They got their rewards with two quick goals to punish the home side who continually failed to clear their lines. Podolski, was another effective substitute, netting 9 minutes after coming on before Gibbs' sweet volley looked to have won the tie for the Gunners.

Swansea City have shown this season that they've never beaten until the final whistle however, as Danny Graham was free at the far post to strike the ball into the net following a corner.
