Moyes Believes In Team

Despite his team sitting ninth on the English Premier League table, Manchester United boss David Moyes still believes in his squad.

Moyes takes full responsibility for his side’s poor showing this season, but is confident they will turn things around in the coming months.

“This squad was good enough to win the league last year,” said Moyes.

“I need to make sure we get them back playing at that level again.

“I take responsibility. I always do. It is the manager's job.

“I will try to make sure that from now on there are no questions about their application.”

United’s next league match sees them up against Aston Villa on Sunday, and Moyes admits his side is desperate to bounce back after suffering back-to-back losses against Newcastle United and Everton.

Moyes also added that he may have to dip into the transfer window to improve his squad in January.

“We are making sure everyone has an opportunity to show me exactly what they can do,” added Moyes.

“We are trying to be as fair as we can to the players who are here.

“We have really good players. These are near enough all the players who were involved last year. Hopefully we can get them in top form.

“I have a good squad. Can I improve it? Of course I can. Am I going to improve it? Yes I am.

“Undoubtedly we will alter things in the coming months and transfer windows. Will they come in January? I don't know.”

Moyes will be without Robin van Persie for the match against Aston Villa and he admits it is a big blow for his side.

“Robin van Persie is out for a month,” said Moyes.

“It is unfortunate because I think if you look at our record with Wayne Rooney and Robin in the team it is actually very good and we have not had them for quite a period recently.

“Marouane Fellaini has a bit of a back injury. Michael Carrick is missing and Robin is going to miss four weeks with a thigh strain. That is a big blow to us.”
