Patrice Evra insists Manchester United’s players have trust in David Moyes’ methods, as they look to climb the Premier League standings.
Moyes succeeded the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson during the summer, after the Reds had won a record-extending 20th league title. The former Everton boss has endured a stuttering start to his Old Trafford career, with three defeats in his first six matches, involving losses at rivals Liverpool and Manchester City and at home to West Bromwich Albion.
United have collected seven points from their last three games but are currently in eighth position, some eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal. However, ahead of the trip to struggling Fulham, Evra insists everything on the training ground is running like clockwork, and he and his players are impressed with the methods of their new manager.
“The training sessions are very good,” he said. “The staff are very good. I’m not lying when I say we are doing the right things. I trust what we are doing and what the new manager has set up. It’s just the results that are missing. We have to make sure we win games, even if we do it in a bad way or an ugly way. After that, we can play the beautiful football.”
Away from the Premier League, the Reds have been making steady progress in both the UEFA Champions League, where they have won two and drawn one of their opening three matches, and in the League Cup. Norwich City were hammered 4-0 in the latter on Tuesday night, setting up a quarter-final date against Stoke at the Britannia next month.
