Frustrations at Man Utd continue to grow under David Moyesby Jack Kitson / 21 October 2013, 09:28Tweet
Just 11 points from a possible 24 was certainly not the return Man Utd boss David Moyes was expecting from his opening eight Premier League games in charge. The struggling Scot has suffered widespread criticism for United's worst start to a league campaign for 24 years, with Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Southampton leaving his lacklustre side level the likes of Hull down in 8th, and eight points adrift of league leaders Arsenal.
Frustrations and discontent are rapidly growing by the week, although Moyes remains a 50/1 long shot with Sky Bet in the Premier League Sack Race. United conceded a last-gasp equaliser to the Saints at the weekend, which is ironically the sort of late goal they are were famed for scoring themselves under during Sir Alex Ferguson's reign. However, the under-fire Moyes remains confident the Red Devils can up-the-ante and get themselves back in the title race, while he insists that they have not lost their fear factor since the departure of Fergie.
United’s form at Old Trafford has been particularly poor by their high standards. Just one win from four in the league is very worrying, but they will be expected to swat away the challenge of Stoke next Saturday. However, firstly they lock horns with Real Sociedad in the Champions League on Wednesday as they look to cement their position at the top of Group A.
