Real Sociedad manager David Moyes
David Moyes's side registered just two shots on target against Villareal

David Moyes suffered his first defeat as Real Sociedad manager as his team failed to score for a second successive game in a 4-0 defeat by Villarreal.

Bruno Soriano opened the scoring from a free-kick with the help of the crossbar and the goalkeeper's back.

Midfielder Denis Cheryshev doubled the home side's lead with a driving left-foot strike across goal.

Substitute Moi Gomez added two late goals after an assist by Cheryshev and a goalkeeping error by Enaut Zubikarai.

Luciano Vietto could have made the defeat even more emphatic as he twice struck the foot of the post with right-foot shots.

Sociedad registered just two shots on target and the win sees Villarreal climb to sixth in La Liga while Sociedad drop to 14th.
