Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits they didn't play to Robin van Persie's strengths in defeat at Everton.

Van Persie did not register a shot on target as United failed to threaten Tim Howard's goal in search of an equaliser and Ferguson admitted they lacked a cutting edge.

"We played around him too much, we didn't show enough penetration," said Ferguson.

"With Robin in your team you know you want to use his ability against centre-backs in situations he is very good at - but we didn't use him enough."
