Moyes confirmed former United boss Ferguson had been in touch prior to kick-off.
"He texted me before the game to wish me good luck," said Moyes. "He was complaining about a tip he got for a horse."
But the ex-Everton man admitted: "I didn't feel any different.
"I came to do a job I have been doing for a long time.
"The colours of the team were different but I was doing what I have been doing for a lot of years now."
