Opta: "6 - Manchester United last finished outside the top six in 1989-90, which was also the last time Liverpool won the title. Repeat?"
In a strange way, today’s results may have helped Manchester United, you know. Arsenal’s win over Hull means they’re in pole position for that final Champions League spot, while the loss to Everton leaves seventh-placed United six points off Tottenham. If Arsenal finish fourth and Moyes’ boys finish seventh, they won’t have the distraction of the Europa League to deal with next season. Now just look at how that’s worked out for Liverpool...
The Scot also said he is working hard behind the scenes already to bring in new players during the summer. Question is ... who would want to join THIS Manchester United?
More from Moyes on missing out on the Champions League next season: “It does [hurt] because it's part of this club. We'll do everything we can to get ourselves in it as quickly as we can. We're going to try to get a team that can win better than this team can.”
The Manchester United manager to Sky Sports: “We gave away two terrible goals. Prior to that we passed the ball brilliantly. We couldn’t make enough chances, had great control and got done by two stupid decisions [by his own players].......We played very well first half but we didn’t have a final through pass at times. That was the disappointing part of it but I can’t fault how we played because we kept the ball very well.”
Goals from Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas were enough for Everton against a lacklustre Manchester United, then. If you're looking for a full recap of events this afternoon at Goodison Park, click on the link below.

@Skiilz4u: "@GoalUK Moyes has to go, I expect him to get sacked next week. Destroyed the champions with his pathetic tactics and coaching staff."
As a team they were bobbins, but how were they as individuals? Check out how Jon Birchall rated Manchester United's players in the link below.
Player Ratings: Everton 2-0 Manchester United
I still can’t believe David Moyes said Manchester United have an “outside chance” of finishing in the top four before today’s game. Crazy stuff. After today’s result it’s not even mathematically possible, never mind what it would have taken for the teams above them to slip up. If ever there was a SMH moment, this is it. #SMH.
Jon Birchall reports from Goodison Park: “The unhappiest of homecomings for David Moyes, who has seen his side destroyed here at Goodison Park. United were systematically outplayed in every way possible by Roberto Martinez's men, who have settled any argument as to who the worst Premier League side in the north west is. Last season's champions, who won their 20th title a year ago this coming Tuesday, are in absolute free fall. Whether Moyes is entrusted to stop it is now rightly up for debate.”
Opta: “70 - Today's result means Manchester United are going to finish with fewer than 70 points for the first time since 1990-91. Decline.”
Okay, NOW we’ve had Manchester United’s best chance of the game. I repeat: what took so long?! Chris Smalling leaps high six yards out to header a Wayne Rooney cross wide of the target. This is grim for the visitors.
We’ll have FOUR added minutes at Goodison Park.
Best chance of the game for Manchester United. What took so long?! Wayne Rooney adjusts his feet in time to get a shot away at goal before James McCarthy rushes back with a slide tackle, only for Tim Howard to stay on his feet and palm away. The save is greeted with a huge ROOOAAARR from the Everton faithful.
Darren Fletcher is fuming. The midfielder stands his ground after Kevin Mirallas knocks the ball around him and then, instead of trying to run past, charges straight into the Scot and falls to ground to win a free kick. It comes to nothing, though.
Another chance! Steven Naismith forces David de Gea to palm wide after a brilliantly executed counter led by Seamus Coleman. They were four on three for one moment!
Chance! Steven Naismith only has David de Gea to beat after a good Kevin Mirallas run and pass down the right, but he steers the ball wide of the post. Really should have scored.
Aaaaaand here is Danny Welbeck - on in the place of Shinji Kagawa. Manchester United now have Javier Hernandez as a lone striker with Juan Mata playing behind him, Wayne Rooney to the left and Welbeck to the right.
Less than 20 minutes to go and it looks as though Danny Welbeck will enter the fray for Manchester United. He could replace any one of current attackers, to be honest.
