In celebration of last seasons 20th top flight win this seasons kit is reminiscent of the teams glory days of the 1990s.

In stark contrast to last seasons celebrations after being crowned Premier League champions, the 2013 - 2014 season has bought little to celebrate for the fans wearing the Manchester United football shirts.

Manager of 26 years Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of last season aged 71.

He has remained with the club in an advisory capacity and helped choose his successor David Moyes, former Everton manager.

At the half way point of Moyes's debut season, he would have been hoping to have been in a strong position, in contention for another Premier League trophy.

However, this dream wasn't to be. After 20 games the team that wear the Manchester United football shirts are 7th in the table, having suffered some shocking defeats both at home and away.

They are 11 points behind current table leaders Arsenal and a revolutionary turnaround will need to happen if there is any chance of finishing in the top 3.

Over recent years there has been a wavering feeling amongst Premier League managers with regard to the FA Cup.

With tough schedules some managers save their best players and compromise their FA Cup performance in favor of other competitions and league performances.

Prior to this weekend's 3rd round Moyes stated that it was a busy time but he thought the FA Cup was important.

Premier League teams begin their FA Cup campaign at the 3rd round. The team that wear the Manchester United football shirts were drawn against Swansea, the Red Devils would play at their home stadium Old Trafford.

Swansea also play in the Premier League but have never won at Old Trafford in their entire history, and went into the game following a run of not winning the last 7 games.

Moyes would have been hoping to prove his critics wrong and lead his team to glory giving them the opportunity to proceed through the competition and perhaps finish the season FA Cup winners.

Routledge put the visiting side ahead after only 12 minutes. It was a simple goal that sent shock waves around Old Trafford.

After only 4 minutes equilibrium was restored as Hernandez wearing his Manchester United home football shirt scored.

Overall the team wearing the Manchester United home football shirt created chances and played well, however Swansea had the better game.

With higher possession and more shots on goal Swansea remained a threat throughout. The home side were reduced to 10 men with Fabio awarded a red card on the 76th minute.

The current Premier League champions couldn't hold on for a replay, Bony's header gave Swansea the lead on the 90th minute and knocked the Red Devils out of this seasons FA Cup.

Manchester United's swift exit from the FA Cup is a huge blow to the team and fans that wear the Manchester United football shirts.

Moyes is facing increasing criticism and will need to pull his team together soon, or his job may be under threat by the end of the season.

A Premier League rematch against Swansea this weekend will be hugely anticipated by both sides, and next weekends trip to Chelsea will be a tough test.
