WATCH Manchester United Knocked Out of the FA Cup By Swansea City [GIF]

Manchester United were knocked out of the FA Cup Third Round after losing 2-1 against Swansea City today in a demoralizing performance by the Red Devils. The defeat for United, their second in a row, will certainly pile the pressure on United manager David Moyes.

While much of the focus will be on Manchester United’s woes, credit must go to Swansea City for withstanding the pressure from United as well as scoring two clinical goals courtesy of Wayne Routledge and Wilfried Bony. It was Swansea City’s first-ever win at Old Trafford in their 101-year history.

In terms of a turning point that changed the game, it had to be the red card that was correctly awarded to Rafael da Silva for a lunge on Jose Canas. Da Silva had only been on the pitch for four minutes before he received the straight red card.

Here are the clips of all three goals in the game:

Wayne Routledge opens the scoring:
