Manchester United boss David Moyes says the club are "rebuilding" after a 2-0 Premier League defeat by Everton.
United's 11th Premier League defeat of the campaign means it is mathematically impossible for them to qualify for next season's Champions League.
Last season's champions are seventh in the table with four games left.
"I think that everybody knows we are on track to make changes and do some different things. We are rebuilding," said Moyes.
"I understand it has not been good, I recognise it has not been good and it needs to be better."
The defeat marked a disappointing return to Goodison Park for Moyes - who spent 11 years at Everton's manager.
He was given a mixed reception by the Everton fans.
"I did not enjoy the result, that's for sure," Moyes told BBC Radio 5 live.
"I've got to say I was so focused on my own job that I did not take anything in. I couldn't tell you if it was a good one (reception) or a bad one."
Moyes was pleased with elements of his side's performance.
"We certainly didn't deserve to go into the break 2-0 down," he said.
"We gave away two terrible goals but prior to that we passed the ball brilliantly well.
"What we couldn't do is make enough chances but we had a great control and we got done by two stupid decisions.
"We didn't have a final through pass at times. That was the disappointing part - that we just couldn't do that in the final third, but I couldn't fault how we played because we kept the ball incredibly well."
Moyes praised his former side, adding: "Credit to Everton - they defended deep and they hit us on the counter attack."
