Manchester United boss David Moyes says his team do not have sufficient class to win the Champions League this season.

But a solid Baggies defensive display, along with some impressive counter-attacking football, proved too much for the Red Devils to handle, and Moyes felt his side got what they deserved. "Disappointing performance, disappointing result. We never really got up to speed," Moyes said. "We had a few chances, but West Brom held their shape and defended well. "They always looked a threat on the break, in the first half especially and even more so in the second half. "We missed that spark and West Brom deserved it no question. I can't argue with that." The United manager introduced Adnan Januzaj at half-time in place of Shinji Kagawa, but the change had little effect on proceedings. "I just tried to find another way, change things from the first half," Moyes explained. "We want Shinji to feel he's getting an opportunity to show what he can do and his best position may be number 10. "But even for Japan he plays off the left as well so it's not something which is strange to him or a position he's not used to. "I thought young Adnan came on and did really well. "I have a strong team here at United, some good players, so I am in no doubt we will put it right. "We will just go out and try and win the next one."
