Misery for Moyes against old club as Suarez hits four

Manchester United manager David Moyes suffered the ignominy of defeat to his old club Everton at Old Trafford last night.

The Scot never won at United during his long reign at Everton, but watched his successor, Roberto Martinez, achieve success at the first time of asking as Bryan Oviedo slotted home at the far post in the 86th minute.

Lewis Holtby’s late strike eased the pressure on Andre Villas-Boas as Spurs came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

Luis Suarez scored four goals against Norwich as Liverpool ran out easy 5-1 winners at Anfield, while Chelsea had to work hard to beat West Bromwich 4-3 at the Hawthorns. Arsenal stayed four points clear at the top with a 2-0 win over Hull, in which Nicklas Bendtner scored. MORE
