Former Arsenal winger Perry Groves believes that Arsene Wenger must field a strong team against Swansea City tonight or risk losing their "only chance" of winning a trophy this season.

The North London outfit take on the Swans at the Emirates for their FA Cup third-round replay following a 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium.

"The Swansea replay is huge for Arsenal," Groves told talkSPORT. "This is Arsenal's only chance of winning a trophy this season.

"They're not going to win the Champions League or the Premier League so Arsene Wenger has to put out his full strength side [against Swansea]."

Arsenal were knocked out of the League Cup by League Two side Bradford City on penalties.
