Manchester United fell to a 1-0 defeat to Everton
Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs has admitted that the players must react positively after their 1-0 defeat to Everton at Old Trafford.
An 86th minute strike from Bryan Ovideo was enough to give Roberto Martinez’s men all three points against their former boss David Moyes.
The defeat leaves United 12 points behind league leaders Arsenal and way off the pace for Champions League football, and their newly-turned 40-year-old knows how important it is to react strongly.
“We have to pick ourselves up.
“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves for too long. We have a home game against Newcastle on Saturday and hopefully we will get a different result.
“We were on a pretty good run. We just have to get over this disappointment now and get on another.
“The gap is bridgeable,” added the Welshman.
“Hopefully we can start picking up points again but we will get a better idea come the new year. We have had a few disappointing results over the last couple of weeks.
“The performances haven’t been that bad. Maybe we are just not getting the rub of the green or taking our chances when we should.
“It is the story of a few games this season. When we have been on top we have not taken our chances.
“If you do that in this league you are going to get punished.”
