The Swans have made it through to the semi-final of the Capital One Cup, so know they can challenge for trophies in these domestic competitions, whereas Arsenal are desperate to end their eight-year wait for silverware.

Swansea are in a healthy position in the league and don’t look like being in any relegation trouble whatsoever, so they can put their strongest available side out here to give themselves the best possible chance of reaching the fourth round.

As for Arsenal, they know they are in for a tough afternoon here and will have to be at the top of their game to make it through to the next round.

The Gunners lost 2-0 on home soil to their opponents in the Premier League back in December, so are aware of the qualities they posses.

Arsene Wenger often likes to give his huge array of young talent a run-out in the early stages of cup competitions, but he might not have that luxury this time out as he once again look to Theo Walcott in the sole striking position to put away the chances.

Indeed, the bookmakers fancy him to do just that as Arsenal can be backed at 11/10 to pick up the win.

Both teams do play a brand of football that is extremely pleasing on the eye, so this should be a scintillating 90 minutes of action.

After the busy Christmas period, neither will want a replay, so might go all out for a victory.  With the recent return to form of striker Danny Graham, who now has two in two in his last two games, Michael Laudrup may opt to start with Michu just off the front man and the Swans price of 5/2 to make the draw for the fourth round could be a touch of value.

Later on Sunday, Mansfield Town, who sit in ninth position in the Blue Square Premier League, take on seven-time winners of the FA Cup, Liverpool.

This does have the makings of being a famous cup tie and as Mansfield are on home soil, the might fancy their chances of causing a huge upset.

They have nothing to lose either as the pressure is well and truly off them, they are the massive underdogs and are expected to get rolled over by their Premier League opposition.

Stranger things have happened in the FA Cup though and the Mansfield players are sure to be relishing the opportunity to go up against one of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Liverpool have to come here and just look to get the job done. Brendan Rodgers is sure to adjust his starting eleven from the one that beat Sunderland 3-0 on Wednesday evening, but has to put a team out that knows what the FA Cup is all about and what they are in for here.

The Reds made the final last year, so will be looking to go one better this time out and if we are honest, they have been handed a very good third round tie that should be a breeze for them. Still, it would take a very confident punter to lump on the the miserly 2/9 on the Liverpool away win.

Those who fancy an upset can back Mansfield at 14/1, which looks  a shade under priced considering the distance between the sides in the league.

We are in for a superb 180 minutes of action on Sunday in the most famous domestic cup that the world has to offer.
