Laudrup: Cup replay is 'very important game'

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has admitted that having to play Arsenal in an FA Cup third round replay is 'not ideal', with a congested fixture list. Danny Graham scored a late equaliser ten days ago, meaning their first meeting ended 2-2.

After tonight's match, Swansea host Stoke at the weekend in the Premier League, then Chelsea in the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final next Wednesday. Laudrup says that the league remains his priority, but insists the replay is 'a very important game for me.'
