Moyes: Signings not needed

David Moyes felt there were enough positives in Manchester United's performance against Liverpool for him not to be too worried if they fail to make any signings on deadline day.

David Moyes: Happy with how Manchester United played against Liverpool

David Moyes: Happy with how Manchester United played against Liverpool

United suffered a 1-0 defeat at Anfield as Daniel Sturridge's early goal proved to be the difference between the sides.

Despite losing his unbeaten record as United manager, Moyes insisted after the final whistle that it was the best he had seen his side play since taking charge.

And while he will attempt to strengthen his squad before the transfer window slams shut on Monday, Moyes is happy with the options already at his disposal.

"I thought we played really well," Moyes told Sky Sports.

"Liverpool were resolute and made it hard for us to score. We maybe didn't quite create the best with the crossing. We got two or three opportunities in the second half and were just a little bit unfortunate that we didn't take them."

The transfer window closes at 11pm on Monday and Moyes added: "We will try and do it, but from what I saw of the players, I'm more than happy with the players I've got.

"I thought they played really well, probably the best we've played this season."

Phil Jones had to be replaced in the first half at Liverpool after landing awkwardly, but the extent of the damage has yet to be confirmed.

Moyes said: "He went over on his ankle when he fell and we will assess how bad it is."

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.
