Beleaguered Manchester United manager David Moyes has vowed that his side will soldier on after it was stunned 2-1 by Swansea City in the FA Cup third round.
United has already fallen 11 points off the pace in the Premier League and it has now lost successive home games for the second time this term, having lost 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford last Wednesday.
''If you lose games at any club, it's always difficult. At Manchester United, it's even bigger,'' Moyes said. ''But that's the job; we'll get on with it.''

Swansea prevailed thanks to a 90th-minute header from Wilfried Bony, after Wayne Routledge's 12th-minute lob was swiftly cancelled out by United's Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.
The balance of the tie tipped in Swansea's favour when acting United skipper Rio Ferdinand limped off in the 75th minute and his replacement, Fabio da Silva, was then sent off for a rash foul on Jose Canas.
West Ham also fell in the third round, crashing to an embarrassing 5-0 loss at second-tier Nottingham Forest, but Chelsea and Liverpool - with their Australian keepers Mark Schwarzer and Brad Jones getting rare starts - progressed against lower-league opponents.
Chelsea beat in-form Championship side Derby County 2-0, with Liverpool avenging its shock loss to third-tier Oldham Athletic in last season's competition with a 2-0 success at Anfield.
■ Serie A leader Juventus remains on course for a third straight Italian title after a 3-0 victory over second-placed Roma, which was forced to play with nine men for the final 13 minutes.
■ Barcelona moved back to the top of Spain's La Liga on goal difference with a comfortable 4-0 win over Elche, thanks to a hat-trick from Alexis Sanchez.
The Catalans are tied with Atletico Madrid on 49 points with the two set to meet this weekend in Madrid.
