Vermaelen eyes cup progress

thomas-vermaelenThomas Vermaelen believes Arsenal have enough to see off Swansea and progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The Gunners take on their Premier League rivals in a third-round replay at the Emirates on Wednesday evening, after Danny Graham's late strike at Swansea in the original tie forced a 2-2 draw.
We will look forward to the replay and feel that our FA Cup destiny lies in our own hands.Thomas Vermaelen
Arsene Wenger was unhappy after his side lost 2-0 at home against Manchester City at the weekend and has demanded an instant response against the Swans. Vermaelen, an unused substitute at the Liberty Stadium, believes they will get back to winning ways.
The Gunners are 11.00 to win 3-1 in normal time, with Theo Walcott at 5.00 to score first. A clean sheet for Wenger's side can be backed at 2.50.
"Looking at the Swansea game in its entirety, I think we deserved to win. We had plenty of chances and I don't think anybody could have complained if we had gone through to the next round," said the defender.
"At 2-1 up that late in the game, you would like to see it through. It is never nice to concede in the final few minutes, but we will look forward to the replay and feel that our FA Cup destiny lies in our own hands."
Wenger will be without the suspended Laurent Koscielny and the injured Mikel Arteta, but Abou Diaby is set to feature after returning from injury against City.
