DAVID MOYES HAS praised the courage of his players after they bounced back from Manchester derby defeat to beat Liverpool on Wednesday.
The Scot made a number of changes from United’s 4-1 loss at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, with the likes of Shinji Kagawa, Nani and Javier Hernandez all given a chance to impress.
And Hernandez in particular did just that, finishing up as the match-winner for United after volleying home a left-wing corner early in the second half.
After such a disappointing result against local rivals City, Moyes was glad to see his players show some fight on their way to a 1-0 victory.
“We had to try and come out and show something a bit better than we had done (against City),” he told Sky Sports.
“We had to bounce back and I thought it was a good result tonight. It’s given me a chance to see some players I haven’t seen much and it’s given me food for thought.
Moyes was particularly impressed with Hernandez, and praised the 25-year-old’s movement in the lead up to his winning goal.
“The movement is great for the goal,” he added. “That’s what Chicharito is all about. He finds space so well.”
