Moyes was shown a red card in the 90th minute of Sunderland's EFL Cup tie with Southampton.

David Moyes insists Sunderland are still improving despite failing to register a single league win this season.
Moyes' side travel to Southampton on Wednesday in hope of advancing into the quarter finals of League cup. The manager says that facing the Saints is a great opportunity to showcase they've turned a corner.
I think it's a game we can do with because I think it's another game to show we are improving, to show we're doing better and we have been slightly.
