David Moyes has made it quite clear that nobody is a certainty in the starting XI of Manchester United at this point of time.
This season is proving to be a tough one for the Red Devils. They have already lost 2 out of the 5 Premier League games that they have played so far and they are currently not even in top 5 in the points table.
Moyes is being heavily criticized for United’s poor performances this season. But, the 50 years old Scot is confident that his team will be able to bounce back.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Moyes said, “I am not going to get frustrated by the criticism. We have got the ability to be able to come back and we will surely do that.”
“This is a great side. They were the Premier League winners last season. There is no lack of potential.”
When asked about United’s win over Liverpool in a Capital One Cup game a couple of days back, Moyes said, “It was certainly a big relief for the entire camp. We had been defeated by them at the start of this month and then, we lost against City too. So, we certainly needed something going our way. I think both the teams played exciting football.”
When asked if resting the seniors in that game against Liverpool was a risk, Moyes said, “I don’t think so. Our squad doesn’t have reserves in it. All the guys are international players. So, there was no risk involved in resting some of the regulars.”
“Nobody is certain to be picked in the starting XI at the moment. It all depends on form. You will have to perform well, otherwise, you are out.”
United’s next Premier League game is against West Bromwich Albion. That match will be played on Saturday at Old Trafford.
