David Moyes: Keen for Manchester United to respond to derby defeat to Manchester

David Moyes: Keen for Manchester United to respond to derby defeat to Manchester

United defeated rivals Liverpool in the Capital One Cup in midweek to boost confidence in the camp and Moyes is keen for his side to put in another good performance against West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"The players showed they were hurt. We'll try to give the fans something to shout about again," he said.

"We made seven or eight changes (against Liverpool). We made sure everybody at Man Utd was able to show what they can do."

Moyes has received a double injury boost ahead of Saturday's game, with Robin van Persie hoping to return from a groin injury, while England international Tom Cleverley may also be available after a knee problem.

"Robin will be back involved somewhere," added Moyes

"Whether we use him, whether we don't, he has trained today. He is back fit and we will see exactly where he is.

"Tom has done a bit of training today as well. He is not too serious. He rocked his knee in training and we were a bit worried.

"But he has had no reaction. He has done some training today and he will not be too far away tomorrow as well."

Moyes admits he still has a long way to go in his challenging new role, with United eighth in the Premier League table with five matches played.

"I have been learning since the day I walked in as Manchester United manager," admitted Moyes.

"I don't think that is going to change for a long time. I even think the manager who has just left was continually learning in the job.

"I am relatively new to it so I am still learning everything about it."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
