Man Utd boss Ferguson: We failed to play to Van Persie's strengths

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."
