The injured players combined with the close proximity of a cup semi-final were a major consideration when it came to team selection for Sunday, Moyes admitted.
“Our approach had to have Sunday’s game in mind as well, because two games in 48 hours means we had to consider them both. It will be difficult going there as the first leg of a two-legged semi-final so it’s difficult to judge exactly how the first leg will go.
“We will go there and try to get ourselves to the final. It’s always been vital to win every game and get to every cup final if I can, I’ve tried to in every one [before] and I will try to do it in this one as well.”
The manager was also grateful for the support he received from United fans following full time on Sunday, despite the obvious disappointment at the early exit from the FA Cup.
“The supporters have been great, they need to see us winning. I’m really disappointed that the results haven’t been good enough here at Old Trafford especially, so thank you for the support and we’ll keep trying to get them some wins.”
The manager was also speaking to MUTV and at his post-match press conference.
