"For us to come away from home and score five goals is really special. There were so many great performances. All around it was a great performance from the players. That is what I was hoping to get more often this season."
Shinji Kagawa and Wayne Rooney starred in attacking roles for United, although Moyes reserved special praise for the midfield performance of Ryan Giggs, who turns 40 on Friday.
"You cannot question Giggs as a football player," he added. "He didn't look fatigued for his age at all. There are signs that we have been getting better."
Giggs, meanwhile, enjoyed his role operating in front of the back four and believes that the Red Devils could have added more goals on the night against the side currently second in the Bundesliga.
"We really killed them on the counterattack and it was a pleasure to play behind the front four," the veteran enthused. "In the second half we could have scored more goals but to score five goals anywhere in Europe is brilliant."
