SWANSEA City have been given the chance to inflict a quick double over Arsenal after being drawn against them in the third round of the FA Cup.

Swansea will host Arsene Wenger's team at the Liberty Stadium in one of the ties of the round, which takes place on the weekend of January 5-6.

Given Swansea's stunning triumph at the Emirates on Saturday, there is a chance the match will be shown live on television. Other intriguing ties see Crystal Palace host Stoke, Brighton entertain Newcastle, holders Chelsea make the trip to Southampton and QPR host West Brom. Bolton take on Sunderland and in-form West Ham entertain Manchester United.

    This is the first time in many a season that we have had a home draw against a top team...we always seemed to get a low team and away...but we are now a top team.
