VIDEO: Swans Book FA Cup 5th-Round Tie

Swansea thrashed League Two club Notts County 8-1 in their FA Cup fourth-round replay to set up a fifth-round tie with Sheffield Wednesday.

It means Carlos Carvalhal will face his former club for the first time.

“I feel it will be like going back home,” Carvalhal said.

“It was my home for two-and-a-half years and I was very happy there.

“I don’t know if you know, but in our second season there we got more points than they had got in 50 years. It was the third highest record they’d had in 150 years.

“We got to the play-offs twice and that’s something very strong which means I am very connected with the club.

“It’s the same with Besiktas, I will always be linked with that club. I believe one day it will be the same with Swansea – I will be a Jack.”

A victory over Wednesday would see the Swans reach the last eight of the cup for the first time since they got to the semi-finals way back in 1964.

But having reshuffled his side throughout this cup run, Carvalhal insists he will not change his approach to the competition.

“As I have said all along, our main competition is the Premier League,” he added.

“Like we have done tonight and in the other games, we will rest players who are at risk of an injury, but we will play a strong team we feel can win the game.”

Tammy Abraham was part of the line-up.

The England international's struggled for action recently, but played in last night's FA Cup fourth-round replay.

This is what he had to say to Swans TV following their emphatic win.
