United have been unsuccessful in their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, and appear unlikely to get the player.

Moyes is apparently interested in Everton duo Leighton Baines and Maroune Fellaini, although he has still to approach his former club regarding the duo.

And while Wayne Rooney is unsettled, he remains at Old Trafford, meaning only Paul Scholes has left the club this summer.

Moyes, preparing his team for Monday night's friendly against Kitchee FC in Hong Kong, insists he has great faith in the pool of players that strolled to the title last season.

"This is the squad that finished 11 points clear at the top of the league last season so I am confident in the squad," he said.

"But even without additions this squad will be tough opponents for any team - they will be looking at Manchester United.

"We know we will be challenged by everybody, every game we play."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
