David Moyes reflected on a “big missed opportunity” after watching his Manchester United side play out a goalless draw against Real Sociedad.

Javier Hernandez was guilty of spurning a glorious chance to give United the lead early in the second half when he blazed over the bar from close range.

Robin van Persie then saw his penalty kick hit the post, before Marouane Fellaini was sent off late on for a second bookable offence.

The result keeps United top of Group A but only one point clear of Bayer Leverkusen, who played out a 0-0 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk.

“We had enough chances to win it, especially in the second half when we controlled most of it,” Moyes told ITV1. “But for one or two moments we were the team on top.

“This was a game we should have won tonight – it was there for us to take the points and get ourselves in a really strong position.

“We’ve not done it but we’re capable of doing it in the other games as well and at the moment we’re still top of the group and in a good position. But we should have take three points today.

“When you get games like this, you need to take your chances and your opportunities.

“We missed a big opportunity to take three points tonight, but we’re still in a good strong position.”

The Red Devils face Bayer Leverkusen and Shakhtar Donetsk in their final two group-stage games.
