David Moyes: Bemoans Sunderland defending

David Moyes has said that he will be seeking answers from his Sunderland team for the way they capitulated against Everton on Monday night.

The contest at the Stadium of Light was closely fought in the first-half until Romelu Lukaku ran riot for Everton after the restart, and Moyes believes the Belgian’s hat-trick could have been prevented if his players had performed their duties properly.

Moyes told Sky Sports: “It was a really poor second half. The two crosses that led to goals, I can’t believe they were not defended. We are putting together a new team and it’s going to take time. I was really disappointed with the last 30 minutes.

“We gave up the goals really cheaply and didn’t do the basics right. We got punished. I can’t wait to get to them and ask ‘why weren’t you doing your jobs?’

“We have got some young players and had a young side out. But that’s no excuse when you are in the big league.”
