Moyes Post Match Reaction: We did not deserve to reach final

Manchester United manager David Moyes admitted his side did not deserve to reach the Capital One Cup final after losing a penalty shootout to Sunderland at Old Trafford.

The Black Cats won 2-1 on penalties after a dramatic conclusion to extra-time to progress to Wembley, where they will face Manchester City on 2 March.

“I am disappointed. We didn’t play well enough over the piece,” said Moyes.

“If we were going to do it we were going to stumble over the line.”

Moyes added:

“I didn’t think we played well enough on the night. We had opportunities to score a second goal and put ourselves in a better position but we didn’t do it.

“It is disappointing but it is part of the job. There has always got to be a loser in a semi-final and it happened to be us.

“I think there have been other games where we have played well enough and not won but I didn’t think we played well enough here. The goal was a bit unlucky for David De Gea but, again, we didn’t play well enough.

“I didn’t think we tried to hang on to anything when we were ahead. I don’t think we could have put more attacking players on if we had tried. We had opportunities to finish the game off but we didn’t take them.”
