Football: Moyes heartened by 'hurt' Manchester United's reaction
MANCHESTER, United Kingdom (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes spoke of how he felt encouraged after seeing his side bounce back from their derby drubbing by Manchester City to knock Liverpool out of the League Cup.
Sunday's abject 4-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium left United five points off the pace in the Premier League, but they showed signs of life in a 1-0 win over age-old rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
"What was important was that the whole club showed that we were hurt by the game on Sunday," said Moyes, after a victory that set up a fourth-round tie with Norwich City.
"We didn't perform to our levels. And they've gone out and the players have done a great job to get us a big result, so I'm really pleased with them.
