David Moyes believes Manchester United can still win the Premier League title - despite slumping to a 1-0 home defeat to Everton on Wednesday.

The Red Devils dropped to ninth in the table after suffering their fourth league defeat of the campaign, and now find themselves 12 points behind league-leaders Arsenal, but Moyes insists United can successfully defend their title.

Meanwhile, Everton boss Roberto Martinez, who succeeded Moyes at Goodison Park in the summer, expressed his pride after Wednesday night's victory.

Left-back Bryan Oviedo scored the winning goal in the 86th minute - and Martinez believes his side overcame a mental block to beat the Red Devils on their own turf.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, though, has refused to rule Manchester United out of the title race.

The Portuguese coach, whose side beat Sunderland 4-3 at the Stadium of Light last night, feels that anything is possible with the Red Devils.

Elsewhere, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez can be mentioned in the same breath as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Uruguay international scored four sensational goals against Norwich City on Wednesday night - and Rodgers was understandably delighted with his star striker's performance.

Arsenal, who were interested in signing Suarez in the summer, have been linked with a move for their former midfielder Lassana Diarra.

The 28-year-old, who also previously played for Chelsea and Real Madrid, is currently playing for Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian Premier League - but both the Gunners and Manchester City want to bring him back to England.

And finally, Barcelona have denied that they have made contact with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

Recent reports suggest that the Argentina international is keen to join the Catalan giants - but these rumours have been quashed by Barcelona vice-president Josep Bartomeu.
