Former Arsenal winger Perry Groves believes that the Gunners must take the FA Cup seriously as it is their "only chance" of winning silverware.

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.
