United out of the league race?
Cape Town - Following a torrid start to the English Premier League season, Manchester United will need a miraculous effort to bounce back and successfully defend their title.
United won only six out of 15 games played, suffering five defeats in the process and are currently languishing in 9th spot on the log
after their home loss to Newcastle United at the weekend.
Newcastle defeated David Moyes’ side 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The defeat left the reigning champions trailing log leaders, Arsenal, by 13 points.
The Red Devils boss admitted on Monday that he is finding life tough at the Theatre of Dreams.
“It's tough because the expectancy is to win all the games, ”Moyes told AFP
"I think there's a bit of everything we can improve - generally play better, pass better, defend better.
"It is not any one thing. It is all round we have to improve. It was only recent when we had beaten Arsenal here and then Leverkusen (that) we were speaking very well about the team.
"I take complete responsibility for the results. Fortunately they've been good in the Champions League but not in the Premier League. Hopefully they will get better."
United’s next league game will be away to Aston Villa this coming Sunday.
