Moyes lays into United players after derby defeat

Manchester United manager David Moyes admitted he heavily criticised his players after they were thrashed 4-1 in the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium yesterday.

City led 2-0 at the break through goals from Sergio Aguero and Yaya Touré, with Aguero and Samir Nasri doubling the lead after the interval before a late consolation Wayne Rooney free-kick

“I told the players the way I would have told players at any other club if I don’t think they’re doing it,” the Scot said. “I don’t think I’ve suffered a defeat like this with Everton in my time. We’ll make sure we react. Every manager has bad results. I’m no different.” page 52-53

Set-piece Arsenal return to the top

Swans sink Eagles for Selhurst spoils

Goals at the start of either half from Michu and Nathan Dyer helped an impressive Swansea to a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace yesterday. Ian Holloway’s side rarely threatened and remain in the bottom three with one win from five games. MORE

Opinion: Sam Wallace

Relegation would ask all kinds of questions about Sunderland’s future. Last season’s £64m wage bill was regarded as the eighth highest in the Premier League. Their debt is around £84m. MORE

Paulinho helps Spurs keep pace

Tottenham remained level with their north London neighbours, thanks to an injury-time winner from Paulinho that beat Cardiff City 1-0. Andre Villas-Boas’ side dominated throughout, but were forced to wait till their 29th shot to finally beat home goalkeeper David Marshall. MORE
