David Moyes watches his team in action against Liverpool

Manchester United boss David Moyes is satisfied with the teams performance, in spite on succumbing to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool, and believes that it was the team’s best performance so far, BBC Sport reports.

Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge continued his red hot streak of scoring when he found the back of the net in the 4th minute, handing the defending Premier League champions their first defeat this season.

“It’s the best we’ve played this season. I wouldn’t be worried if I didn’t add to the squad,” said Moyes.

United continue to be linked with a host of players including Everton’s Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines. United had a £28 million bid turned down by Everton for the duo in July.

The Red Devils opened their Premier League campaign with a 4-1 thrashing of Swansea City and followed it with a goalless draw against Chelsea last Monday.

Yesterday marked David Moyes’s first defeat as a Manchester United manager since taking over the reigns of the club from fellow Scot, Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I thought we played really well,” said Moyes. “We had long periods of the game but couldn’t score. Apart from the lapse in concentration for their goal, we played well.

“We got two or three opportunities but it was unfortunate we didn’t take them.

“I thought Danny Welbeck got kicked in the back of the leg, for me it was a penalty.”

Moyes confessed that he was unsure of the seriousness of Phil Jones’s ankle injury, which he suffered during the match.
