Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted that the club is now in a transitional period, having seen his side lose consecutive home games, Sky
Having won the title in four of the last six seasons and 13 times during the Premier League era, Man Utd find themselves in ninth place after 15 games of Moyes’ first season in charge, 12 points behind leaders Arsenal, who have a game in hand.
They have already lost the same number of games as they did in the whole of last season, leading some to question whether they will even make the top four.
On Saturday, Newcastle United repeated the feat Everton pulled off on Wednesday by winning 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to Yohan Cabaye’s second half strike. Afterwards, a defiant Moyes said: “There will be [light at the end of the tunnel] because it is a transitional period and that was always going to be the case.
“I hoped it wouldn’t have been as poor as it has been in the last few games. When I came here I knew it was never going to be easy and it’s proved to be that way.”
He added: “I think the United supporters have been great to me and great to the club. They understand there is a big transition going on here and, like me, I don’t think they expected us to have lost five games at this stage of the season. We didn’t expect that.
“But I think they understand that there is a change going on. We’ll work, try to improve and try to get better.”
