22.01 Well then. Thanks a lot for following this with us. A close game, could have gone either way, and I still fancy United to put this right at Old Trafford but, whichever way you slice it, this was another blow for David Moyes. You have to go back to May 2001 for the last time Man United lost three in a row (within a single season, like). Moyes might not be in a crisis yet, but he is getting close. Thanks for following this one with us, and have a good evening. Cheers.
21.59 Here’s a stat from Roy Hayes: “Man United lose their first three matches of the year for the first time since 1932. That is 82 years ago!”
21.56 Gus Poyet cannot really put his finger on why Sunderland are doing well in the cups and beating the top teams but suffering in the league. “Johnson made my day, he changed the game. We enjoy this competition but at the end of the day the Premier League is the key one.” He thinks this game could have gone either way, acknowledges that they probably got a split decision in their favour for the pen.
