LONDON -- Manchester United manager David Moyes has been charged with misconduct by the English Football Association for his comments about match officials after a loss to Sunderland in the League Cup.

Following the 2-1 defeat in the first leg of the semifinals on Tuesday, Moyes criticized referee Andre Marriner and his assistants for their "terrible" decisions in the build-up of Ryan Giggs' own goal and a penalty winner by Fabio Borini.

Moyes added his team was "playing referees as well as the opposition."

The Scot, who is under pressure after the Red Devils started 2014 by losing three games in a row for the first time since the 2000-01 season, has until Jan. 15 to respond to the charge.

It is unlikely that Moyes will be handed a suspension for his comments as Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was fined 8,000 pounds ($13,000) and received a warning after admitting to a similar charge.
