FA Probes Moyes After Sunderland Defeat

Manchester United coach David Moyes is under investigation from the English FA for comments made after his team was beaten 2-1 at Sunderland in the first-leg of the League Cup semifinal on Tuesday. Moyes was infuriated after United conceded two goals from set pieces -- a free kick and a penalty -- both of which he believes were questionable calls from referee Andre Marriner.

After the game, Moyes said that for starters, the free kick that was given for an aerial challenge on Steven Fletcher by Jonny Evans should have gone United’s way. Later, he was equally scathing in his criticism of the penalty that was awarded to Sunderland for Tom Cleverly’s foul on Adam Johnson in the box.

"It's really terrible, it really is, we're actually beginning to laugh at them,” Moyes said of the referees. "We just need to keep going, we didn't do an awful lot wrong. We conceded a terrible first goal from the free kick, but it was never a free kick, it was our free kick.” He added: "I thought the referee was going to blow in our direction. I couldn't believe he gave a free kick for that Jonny Evans challenge on Fletcher in the air, it was just a terrible decision. We've got an opposition to play and sometimes we've got other people to play at the moment."
