Manchester United boss David Moyes feels they were unlucky to be knocked out of the FA Cup third round to Swansea, the Daily Mail reports.

The pressure on Moyes now increases after Wilfried Bony scored a late header to beat United 2-1, which makes it their fifth home loss this season.

The defeat puts up the question whether David Moyes is the right man to have replaced Alex Ferguson, but the former Everton boss feels that his team deserved better.

“We are a bit unlucky to lose but we probably didn’t do enough to win it,” Moyes told BT Sport.

“’We made some opportunities, not enough, and when you’re down to 10 men you want to see it out and take a replay but we didn’t quite get that far.”

The red card referred to by David Moyes was given to Fabio after a studs-up challenge whilst the game was in the balance at 1-1.

“I have no issues (with the card). The referee called it right,” Moyes added.

At the moment The Red Devils are short options upfront as Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney are on the injury list.

He is unsure on their availability again, but insists the team must go ahead without them.

“It’ll be great when we get them back, the sooner we get them back the better. They’re not ready yet,” he said.

“If you lose games at any club, it’s difficult. At Manchester United it’s even bigger, but that’s the job and we get on with it.”
