David Moyes fumes after missed opportunity

Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted that his side should taken all three points during tonight's 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad in the Champions League.

The Metro reports that Moyes was left feeling angered by his side's failure to take their chances, and annoyed by the fact that they failed to get the win despite having clear-cut opportunities to do so.

Javier Hernandez misfired from close range before Robin van Persie missed a penalty in the second half, after Ashley Young had gone down dubiously in the box.

United remain top of Group A after collecting a point from tonight's fixture, but Moyes knows that they could and probably should have taken all three.

"We had enough chances to win it, especially in the second half. We controlled it for most of the game," said Moyes after the match.

"That was a game we should have won tonight. It was there for us to take the points, to get into a strong position or even get clear in the group.

"We should have taken three points. When you get games like this you need to take your chances and we missed a big opportunity to take all three points tonight."

And at the forefront of the United boss' mind will most probably be the incident which led up to Van Persie's failed penalty. Ashley Young, whom Moyes has already talked to about diving, went down after a 'ghost' challenge inside the area.

Replays show minimal, if any, contact being made, and the out of favour winger is likely to face a media backlash as a result.
