Moyes salutes 'best' display

Attention now turns to United’s final Asian outing against Hong Kong outfit Kitchee FC, a match that will not feature Friday’s goal scoring hero Kagawa – who is temporarily leaving the touring party to take a well-deserved holiday following his exploits with Japan at this summer’s Confederations Cup

“We've given Shinji more holiday because of his football with Japan in the summer,” Moyes told reporters. “We try and give all players four weeks, if possible, and Shinji hasn't quite had that time. So we'll give him another week's rest. I think Shinji's going to do some training with the club, so he can have some more time at home in Japan. He'll do some training here.”

Another player who is unlikely to play on Monday is Northern Irish defender Jonny Evans, according to the boss: “Jonny has a bit of bone bruising in his foot and just felt it's not really improved that much. We don't want to take any chance with it.”
