MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, (AFP) - Bryan Oviedo scored the only goal as Everton recorded a shock 1-0 win over a Manchester United side managed by their former boss David Moyes that put a huge dent in the champions Premier League title defence.

Wednesday's result left United 12 points adrift of leaders Arsenal and was the first time Everton, whom Moyes left at the end of last season to replace the retired Alex Ferguson, had won at Old Trafford since 1992.

Moyes endured a miserable evening, which began with him being jeered by his former supporters.

United went close to taking the lead when Wayne Rooney's deflected shot came back off the post in the opening period before Danny Welbeck headed on to the bar from close range in the second half.
