United crash out of FA Cup

Wilfried Bony scored the winner against Manchester United in the FA Cup third round.

Manchester United have crashed out of the FA Cup, but there were no problems for Chelsea and Liverpool on Sunday.

A Wilfried Bony goal in the 90th minute was enough to give Swansea a 2-1 win, securing their first ever victory at Old Trafford in the process.

The Dutch striker had terrorised the United defence for the majority of the game, so it was appropriate when he nodded Wayne Routledge’s cross past Anders Lindegaard.

Routledge had opened the scoring for the Swans in the 12th minute, but the home side equalised four minutes later through Javier Hernandez.

Fabio Da Silva was dismissed ten minutes from time for chopping down Jose Canas, but it looked like David Moyes’ side would hang on for a replay until Bony’s intervention.

Michael Laudrup’s team will now face Birmingham, Bristol Rovers or Crawley Town in the fourth round of the competition, which they are 29.00 to win.

History did not repeat itself for Oldham though, who had beaten Liverpool in the fourth round of the competition last season. A strike from Iago Aspas, his first for the club, and a James Tarkowski own goal were enough for the Premier League side to eliminate the League One outfit this time around.

The Reds, who are 6.50 to claim the FA Cup, will face either Bournemouth or Burton in the fourth round.

Second-half goals from John Mikel Obi and Oscar were enough for Chelsea, who saw off high-flying Championship outfit Derby County at Pride Park. They will now face fellow Premier League side Stoke City in the fourth round, with the Blues 5.00 to claim the trophy and the Potters 67.00.
