Emirates FA Cup Third Round:

Swansea City 2-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Goals from Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Bony secured Swansea's place in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup after they overcame Championship leaders Wolves in torrential rain at the Liberty Stadium.
It was Ayew who opened the scoring with a winderful solo effort 11 minutes in, but after Diogo Jota fired Wolves level in the second half, Bony's close range strike settled matters.
For obvious reasons, the priorities of both sides currently lie elsewhere as both battle to be in the Premier League next season – and that no doubt contributed to a lacklustre opening in front of a half empty Liberty.
But as the rain teemed down, Ayew fashioned the first half chance when he pounced on a slip by Kortney Hause, but lost control as he tried to surge into the area.
However, moments later in the Ghanaian opened the scoring in magical fashion, picking up possession 30 yards from goal, and deceiving no less than five players as he weaved into the area before placing his shot past Wolves keeper Will Norris from eight yards.
Carlos Carvalhal’s side continued to control the opening 45 minutes, with Roque Mesa at the heart of most of their good play in midfield – but their only other chance of note came when full back Connor Roberts, on his home debut, tried to latch onto a through ball from Wilfired Bony but Norris was out sharply to smother his effort.
Either side of that the visitors, 10 points clear in the Championship, had close range shots thwarted as firstly Aldred N’Diaye saw his effort deflected to safety by Swansea centre back Alfie Mawson – and home skipper Federico Fernandez did brilliantly to get in the way of Bright Enobakhare’s goal bound strike.
But Nuno Espiritio Santo's side began the second half in the ascendancy, and went close when Helder Costa flashes an 18 yard shot just wide of the top corner.
The same player then had appeals for a penalty turned down as he tumbled to the ground under pressure from Mawson - before the visitors levelled with their first shot on target 66 minutes in.
