Fergie: We threw it away

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted United threw away two points at Everton as last gasp goals from Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta stunned the Scot. United looked to be coasting to victory after Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic and Dimitar Berbatov cancelled Stephen Pienaar's opener. And while Ferguson was delighted with another outstanding performance by Berbatov, he was left fuming by his side's failure to secure the win, instead having to settle for a 3-3 draw. "Football can do that to you," he said. "In a game of a completely comfortable position we've thrown it away - simple as that. "The last two away games have been like that. We lost a goal against Fulham with two minutes to go, and the same again today. We had chances to bury Everton and we didn't do it. "We played some good football at times. "Berbatov I thought was our best player. I thought he was absolutely brilliant today but that's all wasted because we've given the two points away." Meanwhile, Ferguson expects captain Rio Ferdinand to return to the line-up for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Rangers. "I think Rio will play on Tuesday night," he added of the 31-year-old, who has been sidelined with a knee injury sustained in England's first training session in South Africa before the World Cup. "It a European tie at home and we've got to take advantage of that."
