Last minute Bony goal sees United crash out of cup

A last minute winner from Wilfried Bony saw Swansea City dump Manchester United out of the FA Cup at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon.

Wayne Routledge put Michael Laudrup’s men in front on twelve minutes only for Javier Hernandez to draw the hosts level shortly after.

Defender Fabio was then sent off late in the second half, just four minutes after replacing the injured Rio Ferdinand and the visitors made their man advantage count when Bony headed in the winner on 90 minutes.

David Moyes’ men will now turn their attention to tomorrow evening’s Capital One Cup semi-final first leg against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, with several key players expected to be recalled.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports understands that Alex Buttner has insisted that he has no plans to leave Old Trafford, and is keen to stay and fight for his place.

The Dutchman, who has been linked with moves to a host of clubs in recent weeks, made just his fourth start of the season yesterday.

Elsewhere, Norwich City are the latest club to be linked with a loan move for winger Wilfried Zaha, according to Sky Sports.

The Canaries are set to battle with up to five other Premier League clubs for the England international.
