David Moyes suffered his 6th lost in charge of Manchester United when they had to face off against Tottenham Hotspur and it was the side guided by Sherwood that came out on top with a 2-1 triumph.
Adebayor and Christian Eriksen gave Tottenham the lead but Welbeck rescued 1 goal for Manchester United at the 67th minute. David Moyes and his men searched for the equalizer but were unable to find it, but a controversial moment arrived when Ashley Young raced for the ball that was inside the area and the French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris charged his way into it as well.
Young managed to get to the ball first but was later brought down by Lloris and despite the contact that was made between the players, Howard Webb rejected the claims of the Manchester United fans and players that wanted a penalty awarded because of the foul that the goalkeeper committed.
The match ultimately concluded with Tottenham snatching the victory and the pressure continue on emerging for the Scottish coach David Moyes who keeps on having negative results and just does not seem to gain the confidence and trust with his fellow fans.
“It was scandalous, a scandal. If you follow through on a player anywhere else on the pitch with your foot high, it would be a sending-off and a red card. You couldn’t do that anywhere else’’.
“The goalkeeper comes out, Ashley Young gets the ball before him and he follows through. It’s an incredible decision which didn’t go our way, in fact probably the one of the worst I think I saw.”
“That is a stonewall penalty kick. If that isn’t given as a penalty kick, I don’t think we will get any more in the league this season. You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt at all. It’s reckless, it’s late, and it’s in the penalty box. I don’t know what else you can say’’.
David Moyes’ chances on getting hold of the Premier League title with Manchester United is slipping through his hands and if things continue going as they are right now, they will even fail on securing a Champions League spot for next season which will be very disappointing.
