The defeat is United's third of the Premier League season and their second at what is usually a fortress. The Old Trafford faithful watched on as United squandered chance after chance, and just five minutes from time, full back Bryan Oviedo popped up at the back post to hand Roberto Martinez's side the win.
Martinez replaced Moyes at Old Trafford over the summer, but has ironically improved the Toffees and taken them five points about Moyes' new side after the win.
United fans have come to expect better from their team after years of success under Sir Alex Ferguson, and fans took to Twitter to support Moyes, but also voice their worry that he may not be the right man to succeed Ferguson. The concerns ranged from tactical preference to selection and transfer targets, but many fans also believe that the former Preston manager should be given time to mould the team into his own.
Moyes inherited a poor squad, the addition of Fellaini has made it worse. #MUFC— Ben Armstrong (@BenArmstrong16) December 4, 2013
For all those wanting Moyes sacked, can I ask you who you are intending replacing him with?!? #MUFC— Rob Lee (@roblee7) December 4, 2013
Sacking Moyes now would be nonsensical, he needs to be given time. He's got the hardest job in football #MUFC— Fergie's Hair-Dryer (@FergiesHairDrye) December 4, 2013
Why are you playing Welbeck behind Rooney and Kagawa on the left? Moyes makes no sense. #MUFC— Hameer Patel (@HameerPatel) December 4, 2013
"Marquee" players simply don't want to play for David moyes. Don't expect marquee signing's in jan #MUFC— The Moyes Era (@MoyesMinutes) December 4, 2013
