Premier League - Moyes: Scandalous decision one of the worst I've ever seen

David Moyes's incredulous response to a rejected penalty call leads our look at managers' reaction to Wednesday's games.

Manchester United 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur

David Moyes (on his side's performance to BT Sport): "(It was) very good. We played really well, we got done on a couple of counter attacks for goals, made a couple of mistakes which we could have done better on, but I think the team did very well today."

(On the decision not to give a penalty for Hugo Lloris' challenge on Ashley Young): "It was scandalous. If you follow through on a player anywhere else on the pitch with your foot high, it would be a sending-off and a red card. You couldn't do that anywhere else. The goalkeeper comes out, Ashley Young gets the ball before him and he follows through. It's an incredible decision which didn't go our way, in fact probably the one of the worst I think I saw."

(On Adnan Januzaj's booking for diving): "Have you seen that decision? That is a terrible decision. Adnan has got bumped. The boy has tried to edge him off the ball."

Tim Sherwood (To BT Sport): "They were there for the taking…we didn't do it regularly enough but you know what games are won on different qualities and I think we showed the heart of a lion today. We really dug in when we had to which is what you have to do at Old Trafford and all credit to the lads for getting the result."

Arsenal 2-0 Cardiff City

Arsene Wenger (on Nicklas Bendtner): "Nicklas is a player who has gone through some difficult periods, so I just want to give him great credit, I told him already today that he is back to the level I want him to be at, and if he continues to develop like that he will come back into the team. Unfortunately he got injured today. He was a bit unlucky, he said he landed on the foot of a Cardiff player and sprained his ankle. It looks like it is not a question of days, but weeks. I am very sad for us, but for him as well."

David Kerslake: "I told the players that Joe (McBride) and I know our situation is temporary, but that they made me immensely proud of their performance against Arsenal. I really thought we were going to hold on. We knew coming to the Emirates Stadium we would be facing wonderfully talented players and that we would be under the cosh. We showed real discipline, defended well and the players fought for each other. I thought we would hang on."

Swansea City 2-3 Manchester City

Michael Laudrup: "I think it was by far the best performance from Bony as a Swansea player and that is how we want to see him. He showed good movement, he was challenging defenders and if he can do it against Vincent Kompany and Matija Nastasic he can do it against anyone. I think that was very positive."

Manuel Pellegrini: "I think the most important part of the performance was to score the second and the third goal. After the offside goal, Swansea grew and they had a lot of chances in the second half and we knew that it would be very difficult for us. But the team, the same as in other games, had the character to change it. That character is very important because at the beginning of the season we dropped too many points away. I think it's not good for this team to win just 11 points out of 27 in the first half of the season. Winning here, the first game away [in the new year], is very important for us."

Southampton 0-3 Chelsea

Mauricio Pochettino: "Rome wasn't built in a day. We have been facing some of the top sides and that has been tough. We are a young side and we are still learning. We have to keep on believing on our style of play."

Jose Mourinho (on subbing Juan Mata): "I want to keep him. I don't want him to go. That is my opinion, my wish, but my door is open. The club's door is open too so when a player wants to speak to us we are there waiting for them. If you are asking do you want the club to sell him? I don't want to."

Liverpool 2-0 Hull City

Brendan Rodgers: "I said to the players afterwards that I thought that was our best win of the season. In a lot of games we've been vibrant with great energy, scored goals and performed well, as well as won. But on the back of the games that we've had over this period - and to play with a lot of the same players against a team that won their last Premier League game 6-0 - we knew we were going to have to tough it out today and dig in. We might not have always been at our best, but we got two great goals, had other opportunities and actually restricted Hull to no shots on target. I'm very, very pleased with today because it was a great victory for us."

Steve Bruce: "It's a disappointing result. It was a difficult afternoon. It isn't the easiest of places to come and towards the end we had a lot of tired bodies out there. We stuck at it and conceded from two set-pieces. Our season is never defined in places like this. It was very comfortable for Liverpool because we didn't have the energy. They were better than us on the day."

Stoke City 1-1 Everton

Mark Hughes: "We have taken one point off a very good Everton team and maybe before the game started we would have been happy with that, I thought in the first half we played really well, and then in the second half we came out and got a good goal from Assaidi. He is really playing well at the moment and showing the threat he has. You know at some point Everton will throw people forward, take chances and try to make something happen, but I was really happy with how we showed what was required, putting our bodies on the line and blocking shots."

Roberto Martinez: "I thought this game - given the conditions in terms of the wet weather and this moment in the busy Christmas period, with the squads getting really stretched - that whoever scored the first goal, that was going to be final. And I felt in the first half, when we hit the woodwork twice, that it was not going to be our day. I don't think we were at our best by any stretch of the imagination. But what we showed was an incredible reaction after we conceded the goal."

Fulham 2-1 West Ham

Rene Meulensteen: "The sending off helped us but we still had to be calm and attack with quality, You see teams struggle against 10 men all the time, but I told the players to attack, but keep that quality. We definitely deserved the result because we had plenty of chances. David Stockdale made a couple of excellent saves and it was just reward for him keeping his focus after what happened last weekend, which wasn't his fault."

Sam Allardyce (on Kevin Nolan's red): "I just don't quite understand where he's lost his cool and why it's happened. I know the centre-half fouled him, and I also know that (referee) Mark Clattenburg didn't give a free kick and he should have done. But it's still not an excuse for what Kevin did, and he ends up getting himself sent off. When you have a man sent off it gets very difficult indeed. So he's responsible for us probably losing the game more than anything else, there's no doubt about that."

Crystal Palace 1-1 Norwich City

Tony Pulis: "The end of the season is when it counts. It is not at Christmas or new year. The most important thing if you focus on that. The window opens so it gives you an opportunity to wheel and deal; move a few out and a few in, which hopefully will help us."

Chris Hughton: "I have no complaints with the penalty. I don't have any complaints with the ones that went against us but certainly Chamakh should have been off the pitch. The referee had a very good view of it and, to the letter of the law as I know it, if someone raises a hand it's a sending off. Credit to Wes Hoolahan - he didn't try to get the lad sent off. He got straight back up and he didn't try to make a meal of it but it was a sending-off offence."

Sunderland 0-1 Aston Villa

Gus Poyet (to the BBC): "It is difficult to take. Football is unpredictable but when you start well and have chances you have to take them. Unfortunately the mistake was against us and after that there were too many nerves and too much tension. I don't know why they (the Sunderland players) were nervous and we were not organised enough. People were making individual decisions but not thinking as a team and that disappoints me. I'm getting a little bit fed up."

Paul Lambert: "I thought we deserved it - I thought we could have run out more comfortable winners. We should have at least had three or four, the chances we had. Coming up here was always going to be tough because of Sunderland's situation, but I felt the Swansea game gave us a platform to try to build. But we are a football club that can't carry big injuries to big players, and I think it was evident here, the two lads coming back gave us a major lift."

West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Newcastle United

Keith Downing (To Sky Sports): "You could tell by the reaction of the crowd and the players it's been a long time coming, but it's been coming over the last week or so. We've had a good Christmas and we've finished up with a good home win today. You saw the last five minutes. It was all a bit hectic and bit hairy-scary. The players have dug in really well. They've done that over the last week or two. I'm really pleased for them because they've turned it around."

Alan Pardew: "I don't think we can have too many complaints. I think Mathieu has been our best player this last period, and he is an honest player. He genuinely went for the ball. There was no malicious intent, but you can't take off with too feet like that. We are going to suffer, and so will he. He will be a big miss for three games, and obviously it affected us today."
