Manchester United suffered their 3rd consecutive defeat as they lost 2-1 against Sunderland in the Capital One Cup match as they had to face off for the 1st leg and it was the hosts who took a rather surprising victory against the side of Moyes.
An own goal of Ryan Giggs gave Sunderland the lead during the 1st half but Nemanja Vidic equalized the match at the 52nd minute but unfortunately for Manchester United, Cleverley tackled Johnson in the penalty area and the referee did not hesitate in giving away the set-piece for Borini to slam past David de Gea as they claimed the triumph.
David Moyes is once more lashing out his frustration at the referees, much like he did some weeks ago after going through another disappointing defeat according to him it’s the decisions that the authorities on the pitch which are causing his team on having their recent negative results.
“I feel we are having to play the opposition and the officials,” said Moyes, after Fabio Borini had converted the spot kick “They gave a free-kick on the first goal that I couldn’t believe’’.
“Maybe I have got to understand that’s what happens at Manchester United – they are certainly not giving us much at this moment in time. For the penalty, the linesman gives it, but he can’t see through Patrice Evra’’.
“I just think it is incredible when you think we didn’t get one the other week for the Hugo Lloris challenge against Tottenham. It’s hard to take, it really is.”
Manchester United was already disqualified from the FA Cup after losing against Swansea City some days ago and now is on the verge of getting eliminated from the Carling Cup which just sums up the disastrous season David Moyes has had since being appointed as the new head coach of the club.
The Premier League title is already out of the reach of Moyes which leaves him only having the Champions League available on winning but considering the all-star teams that are battling it out in the European tournament, it’s starting to become likely that he will not be earning any silverware in this season.
