Nani: Admits that Manchester United are lacking a little confidence

David Moyes' side kept in touch with the early Premier League leaders with a 1-0 victory over Arsenal before the international break, but some of their performances this season have drawn criticism.

Having suffered a surprise home defeat against West Bromwich Albion and also drawn with Southampton, Nani concedes that the fear factor may not be quite the same as it once was at Old Trafford.

But the Portugal winger is convinced that United will soon get back on track and start to show their true quality.

He said: "It looks like teams are more confident when they come here to play against us.

"But I'm sure we will change that because, at the moment, we are playing without all our confidence.

"I think once results start coming we will show who the real Manchester United are and will do much better."

Nani has started just four league matches this season and has yet to contribute a goal or assist, but he insists he is enjoying life under new boss Moyes.

He added: "The manager has been fantastic with me.

"He has been giving me advice and trying to help give me confidence.

"The coaches are trying to get my confidence higher to show all the qualities I have got. They are trying to get me back to my best level."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
