Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup relishes cup clash

Michael Laudrup insists cup competitions in England are "still something special" ahead of Swansea's third round FA Cup replay with Arsenal.

The Swans boss guided his side to a 2-0 Premier League win at the Emirates in December, but is not resting on his laurels, insisting the Gunners "will do everything" to progress in the competition in order to end their recent trophy drought.

Four goals were shared in the initial tie at the Liberty Stadium, and three of those came in a frantic six-minute spell at the close of the game when Swansea striker Danny Graham got the vital equaliser to force a replay.
