LIVERPOOL (Sporting Alert) — Manchester United fell to its 11th defeat on Sunday, a very painful one for their fans to see, after losing 2-0 at Everton, still manager David Moyes found something to give praise.
This time, the first year United manager, who has had a rough time replacing Sir Alex Ferguson this season, salutes his team’s “brilliant” passing game.
“We gave away two terrible goals but prior to that we passed the ball brilliantly well, kept the ball, had great control of the game,” Moyes said.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez, who normally emphasize on a passing game, went the old fashion English-like style on Sunday and played direct football.
Manchester United had majority of the possession, but failed to do anything with it.
“What we couldn’t do is make enough chances but we had a great control and we got done by two stupid decisions.
“We didn’t have a final through pass at times, we didn’t have a final finish when they came and there weren’t very many of them.
“That was the disappointing part, that we just couldn’t do that in the final third but I couldn’t fault how we played because we kept the ball incredibly well.”
