Arsenal welcome Swansea City to the Emirates tonight for their FA Cup replay and we have the teams.

The two sides will do battle again after drawing 2-2 at the Liberty Stadium 10 days ago and Arsene Wenger will be looking to maintain his proud record of never being knocked out of the FA Cup at the third round stage tonight.

Laurent Koscielny is suspended for the game after being sent off against Man City on Sunday, so Per Mertesacker comes in. Mikel Arteta is also missing so Francis Coquelin plays in midfield while Abou Diaby starts his second game in a row.

Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

Arsenal Team

Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Coquelin, Wilshere, Diaby, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud

Subs: Mannone, Jenkinson, Santos, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arshavin, Podolski

Swansea Team

Vorm, Richards, Chico, Bartley, Tiendalli, Britton, Agustien, de Guzman, Routledge, Dyer, Graham.

Subs: Tremmel, Monk, Davies, Ki, Shechter, Hernandez, Michu

Now we’ve seen the line-ups, what’s your score prediction for the game?
