Manchester United, Arsenal advance in FA Cup
LONDON (AP) -- Manchester United and Arsenal negotiated testing replays in the FA Cup to both win 1-0 and reach the fourth round, while Chelsea's slim title chances in the English Premier League were dented by drawing 2-2 at home to Southampton.
United was reliant on an early goal from Wayne Rooney, playing his first game in three weeks after a knee injury, to squeeze past West Ham at Old Trafford and earn a match against Fulham.
Arsenal left it late at Emirates Stadium, with midfielder Jack Wilshere capping a superb display with an 86th-minute winner to knock out a tired-looking Swansea. Brighton's next for Arsene Wenger's team.
Chelsea squandered a two-goal lead given by Demba Ba and Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge, with Jason Puncheon's equalizer coming 15 minutes from time.
