Luciano wants quickfire response against Gunners

Luciano Narsingh has targeted an instant response from Swansea City following their 1-1 draw with Notts County in the FA Cup.

Carlos Carvalhal's men controlled the first half against their League Two opponents, with the winger giving them the lead just before the break at Meadow Lane.

However, a resurgent second-half display from the hosts saw them find an equaliser through Jon Stead that forced a replay at the Liberty on February 6.

Narsingh believes the Swans' failure to build on their first-half momentum proved costly, and insists they must up their levels ahead of facing Arsenal in the Premier League on Tuesday.

"It was a difficult game," he said. "We played good in the first half, created chances and scored our goal.

"If we had got a second then they would have probably stopped believing.

"But we didn't play the same way in the second half, so they started to believe and scored their goal.

"We knew it was going to be difficult from there and that they were going to defend.

"We have to run more against Arsenal but we are preparing and working hard so, hopefully, we'll be ready."
