Manchester United manager David Moyes has said that his Crystal Palace counterpart Tony Pulis has proved a lot of critics wrong since taking over in November, BBC Sport has reported.

When Pulis was appointed, Crystal Palace were seen by most a certainties for relegation having only won once in their first 11 games, losing eight. The Welshman’s preferred style of play was also criticised.

However, he has led them to seven wins in 15 matches, which have lifted the club out of the relegation positions, and, ahead of the meeting between the two clubs on Saturday, Man Utd boss Moyes had praise for Pulis. He said: "He has showed all his experience. A lot of people were writing Tony off during his time at Stoke but he hasn't half gone in there and made a few people eat their words.

"You can talk about whatever you want, but results are what matter and you have to think about where Crystal Palace were and where they are now," Moyes said on whether their style of play was worse under Pulis.

"What matters to Tony is results and he's very good at getting them.

"Tony always has his sides well organised and well drilled. The players are made well aware of how he wants them to play and what's expected from them.

"He's had great success throughout his career. He's been a really successful manager in the Premier League."
