David Moyes predictably panned as Manchester United lose 2-0 at Everton [Tweets]

It was a disappointing return for David Moyes to Goodison Park, as his Man United side were beaten 2-0 by his old side Everton.
The defeat completes a miserable double for United, having lost the reverse home fixture back in December, Everton completing the double over United for the first time in 44 years.
United dominated possession in the first half, and for the opening periods of the second, but it was sterile, with Moyes’ Men only managing one shot in the first half.
Once the game became stretched as United searched for a comeback, Everton really took control, and United looked ragged at the back as Everton countered relentlessly, and really should have made it 3-0.
As ever, Moyes has taken the brunt of the criticism, as United fans lamented the lack of identity, style, or bite in the final third on Twitter.
Everton fans singing "you're getting sacked in the morning." #makeusdream

Moyes' Everton teams used to fight. United looked like they were losing that from the first minute to the last.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Everton have now all done the double over Manchester United this season. Incredible.

I don't think we even tried today. Almost like they they didn't hope either.

At least Rooney signed a new contract.

Moyes and #mufc have reached that point where every win feels like an irrelevance and every defeats feels seismic. That's not a good thing.

Its a bit like watching a chav running around kicking a dying pigeon like a football around a car park for a laugh. Thats United that is.

Seventh placed team, who have won only one match against team above, losing away at fifth placed team is not a shock really is it?
