Swansea City skipper Garry Monk says drawing Manchester United in the FA Cup Quarter Final is a massive incentive for the team to beat Fulham in the replay.

Martinez’s drew 1-1 with Fulham at the Liberty Stadium and they’ll play again on Tuesday 24th February to decide the winner at Craven Cottage.

Monk told BBC Sport:

‘It’s a massive incentive for us to… hopefully get the win against Fulham,’

‘To go and play them [United], especially at home, I think our fans will be over the moon if we can get through to this tie.

‘They’re the best team in the world right now and it would be a massive thing for us, a massive thing for the club and the city as a whole.’

‘We’re trying to focus one game at a time as we are but – I know it’s a cliche to say – we try and let everyone else get carried away,’



The Swans are back in League action on Tuesday night as we travel to Watford.
