Made a good stop to deny Giroud after the break, and stood little chance with either of Arsenal's goals.
Not tested by Walcott as much as you might expect, with the England international often drifting in off the flank in search of his central striking dream. Got forward well, too.
His tendency to dive into challenges was worrying at times, but he was solid enough.
Had the better of Ramsey at both ends of the pitch all afternoon, and was never really exposed one-on-one.
More composed than centre-back partner Chico, he was rarely beaten in the air or on the floor.
Not his most effective performance, but did showcase some nice passing.
Played the sensible pass with assurance and unerring accuracy, keeping his side ticking over in possession nicely.
Caused Gibbs a few problems with his pace and trickery but, like De Guzman, he has had better afternoons.
Complemented Britton nicely in the Swansea midfield with a wonderful range of passing, only slightly marred by some clumsy tackling.
Linked up well with Dyer, De Guzman and Graham without ever really threatening to make the decisive breakthrough himself.
Led the line superbly with very little service, and forced a decent reflex stop from Szczesny before the interval. Fired emphatically into the roof of the net to earn his side a replay.
Came on with just over 20 minutes left as Britton tired.
Brought on to make a difference and did just that, lofting the ball superbly over Mertesacker - no mean feat in itself - before slotting calmly beyond Szczesny.
Replaced Routledge with just over half an hour left, and brought fresh legs to the Swansea attack without accomplishing anything of great significance.
Rarely tested, but could do little about Michu's clinical second-half finish or Graham's net-rippler.
A really poor showing. His passing, tackling, positioning and decision-making were all below par, and he is still to regain his best form after his injury problems.
Got forward well and persistently and, although his crossing was often poor, he took his goal brilliantly.
Did reasonably well up against Graham and later Michu, but was let down by his partner Mertesacker.
Caught dreadfully flat-footed by Michu, he responded by falling to the floor in three hilarious stages as the Spaniard raced beyond him and slotted in Swansea's opener.
Played out of position on the left, he was all effort but no substance. His passing was wayward and he had real trouble whenever he tried to take on Tiendalli.
Conducted proceedings intelligently from the base of midfield, but offered little protection to Mertesacker in the build-up to Michu's goal.
As neat and tidy in possession as ever, his finishing and general decision-making in the final third was well below his usual standards.
It didn't seem to be his day but he never gave up, endlessly probing with the ball and providing the driving force in Arsenal's stirring comeback.
Looked clumsier than usual and missed a couple of very decent chances.
Deployed to the right of his beloved central striking position, he rarely troubled Davies and failed to get himself into enough shooting positions.
Replaced Ramsey with just under 20 minutes to go and got the goal which sparked his team back into life.
