VIDEO: Fabio's horror challenge and red card in United's defeat to Swansea

The Brazilian defender was dismissed after only four minutes after coming off the bench in the loss at Old Trafford.

David Moyes’ woes were heightened on Sunday with another defeat on home soil, with Swansea defeating Manchester United 2-1 in the FA Cup third round.

The Premier League champions were at 1-1 when Fabio was introduced from Rio Ferdinand in the 76th minute, and the substitute played his part in the home side’s defeat.

After only being on the pitch for four minutes, the full-back was dismissed for this horror tackle on Jose Canas.

Wilfred Bony compounded the sending off and defeat for United, with a goal in the last minute to knock the hosts out of the tournament.

Fabio will not have impressed Moyes with his act of petulance, and is already on the fringes and has only played one Premier League game this season.
