David Moyes: Pleased with Manchester United's win over Swansea

It looked like United's search for a win would continue but an energetic second-half display, which included goals from Antonio Valencia Danny Welbeck, ensured the home side went away with all three points.

And, speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Moyes thought his side were worthy winners.

Moyes said: "We thought we played well. We started well but didn't do enough to get enough goals. Danny had a great chance to make it 1-0 early on but didn't.

"We limited them to a few opportunities and we got the result we deserved."

Moyes swapped Adnan Januzaj and Shinji Kagawa at the break and it was a change that turned the game in United's favour.

Moyes added: "We moved Januzaj wide and I thought that worked much better especially with Shinji off the front man.

"Adnan is really earning his start at the moment.

"We also had to work harder and make more chances. They went about their business really well.

"Quite often recently we've been missing that bit of luck to get someone on the end of chances but today we had it.

"Welbeck looked better in the second half too and was a threat. He could have scored in the first half but I am delighted he got his goal and we should have scored more through Chris Smalling and Kagawa but we'll maybe keep the goals for later in the season."

Moyes takes his side to Stamford Bridge next weekend to face Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
