Terrible start cost us - Moyes

Published Add your comment

A poor start and a much-changed side cost Everton the chance of progression in the Capital One Cup at Leeds, according to manager David Moyes.

The Premier League's third-placed side arrived in West Yorkshire as one of the favourites to lift the trophy, but left a rain-sodden Elland Road with a 2-1 third-round defeat after having their noses bloodied by the Championship battlers.

On whether or not his decision to rest some players was key, Moyes said: "These boys are in the squad and have to be able to show they can come in and play. If you don't use them, what's the point in having them? The players want to play and be involved."
