The reigning Premier League champions slumped to a 2-1 loss to Tottenham at Old Trafford on New Year's Day - their fourth reverse at home under new manager David Moyes.

"It is hard to explain," said Northern Ireland defender Evans. "They caught us on the break a little bit for the two goals so maybe we need to be a bit more patient.

"Away from home, you tend to be more defensive in your set-up. Maybe at home we are leaving ourselves a bit too open.

"We want to entertain our fans and score goals but maybe that is to our detriment a little bit."

"It is disappointing but we will keep plugging away. We actually played quite well in the previous six games but we have started the New Year on a bad foot and we need to get positive results again."

The Red Devils now find themselves languishing in seventh place in the Premier League - some 11 points shy of leaders Arsenal.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
