The Mexican striker was on the receiving end of a wonderful Alex Buttner cross and made no mistake from close range.YouTube credit: MuchoMachoUnited had several other decent chances either side of the break, but it was Swansea who were the better team in the second half. Laudrup’s men looked dangerous on the break and played with their usual neatness in possession.Fabio made matters more difficult for United when he was red carded for a shocking lunge in the 80th minute. The Brazilian wing back had only been on the pitch briefly after coming on as a substitute, meaning Moyes well regret his personnel switch.YouTube credit: FootballGolazos2014 MANCHESTER UNITED HAVE been knocked out of the FA Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Swansea at Old Trafford.The shock will only add to the pressure on David Moyes in Manchester, as Michael Laudrup’s side advance to the fourth round to take on Birmingham, Bristol Rovers or Crawley.
