Manchester United boss David Moyes believes that the Red Devils played well at Goodison Park today, despite going down to a 2-0 defeat to Everton.

Moyes' men had more possession than the hosts, 62 per cent to 38 per cent, but struggled to create any opportunities of note.

Leighton Baines gave Everton the lead from the penalty spot following a Phil Jones handball, while Kevin Mirallas then cut inside and blasted the Toffees 2-0 up before half-time.

Moyes though saw many positives in the football that his side played.


"We gave away two terrible goals, but prior to that we passed the ball brilliantly well, had great control of the game. But what we couldn't do was create chances", he told Sky Sports.

"If you looked at it, we played very well in the first half but we didn't have a final through pass at times; we didn't have a final finish when they came, though there were very few of them."

The defeat means that Manchester United are now certain to miss out on Champions League football next season for the first time since 1995.
