Notts County thrashed by Swansea City


Notts County thrashed by Swansea City

Swansea City racked up the biggest FA Cup win in their history as Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer inspired an 8-1 thrashing of Notts County in Tuesday's (Feb 6) fourth round replay.

Swansea City ruthlessly demolished League Two Notts County 8-1 to seal their passage to the fifth round of the FA Cup in emphatic fashion. Tammy Abraham scored his first goal since October to put the dominant hosts ahead and 90 seconds later his through ball set up Nathan Dyer to double their lead. Dyer added a third with a sweet first-time strike and, although Noor Husin responded for the visitors with a powerful hit, Abraham finished a fine team move to give Swansea a 4-1 half-time lead.

The procession continued after the break with goals from Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge and Tom Carroll -- whose beautiful curling effort was the pick of the bunch -- as well as a memorable debut strike for Daniel James.

Swansea's biggest margin of victory at the Liberty Stadium sets up a fifth-round tie away against manager Carlos Carvalhal's former side Sheffield Wednesday.

High-scoring Swans -- the best of the stats

* Swansea's 8-1 scoreline against Notts County is their biggest winning margin in the FA Cup.

* In fact, a seven-goal victory is the biggest margin between two league sides in the FA Cup since Chelsea beat Ipswich 7-0 in a 2011 third-round tie.

* The Swans are also the first side to score eight goals against another league side in the FA Cup since Walsall beat Torquay 8-4 in a second-round replay in December 1995.

* Tammy Abraham ended a 14-game goal drought with his first goal in 825 minutes for Swansea.

* Nathan Dyer scored a brace for the first time since August 2014 when netting twice in a 3-0 win for Swansea against West Brom.

* Luciano Narsingh provided a hat-trick of assists against the Magpies -- as many as he had recorded in his previous 31 appearances for Swansea.
