Manchester United manager David Moyes was just a bit touchy after seeing his side lose for the third time on the bounce at Sunderland on Tuesday and decided to take it out on the referee.

Andre Marriner was the man in charge of the game and Moyes moaned that it was his decisions that lead to both of Sunderland’s goals and as we all know, it’s only supposed to be United that get the rub of the green on more occasions than not.

The Red Devils boss commented after the game that United were ‘having to play’ the referees as well as the opposition, something which many, many teams have felt was the other way around whenever they came up against United.

Moyes blubbed to reporters: “After the first 15 minutes I thought we were very good. We defended a terrible free-kick, but how the referee has given a free-kick for that is way beyond me. I just cannot see how that is a free-kick.

“And the penalty? We had a player booked for that the other day against Tottenham. The referee is in a great position to look at it, down the line, 15 yards, and the linesman gives it from behind and he cannot see through Patrice Evra.”

The two clubs meet again at the end of January at Old Trafford for the second leg of this tie.
