David Moyes insists there is much more to come from his Manchester United side, following their routine win at Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.
Villa Park was a happy hunting ground for the Reds under Sir Alex Ferguson, with their last defeat at the stadium being the 3-1 reverse on the opening day of the 1995/96 campaign. And it looks as though Moyes may also relish the annual trip to the Midlands, as a Danny Welbeck brace and a Tom Cleverley goal gave his team a comfortable 3-0 win.
This was a much needed triumph for the champions following successive home defeats to Everton and Newcastle United, and it has breathed fresh life into their fading hopes of retaining the title. But speaking after the match, Moyes revealed that he feels there is much more to come from his players, and he will be expecting more improvement.
“We know we have to play better than we did today again,” the Scottish coach told Sky Sports. “It continually has to improve and I will make sure it gets better over the coming months. I think we will play much better, I have told the players that is the least we can do and we have to keep going and win more games.”
United will look to end the calendar win with wins against West Ham United, Hull City and Norwich City, but first of all they travel to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City in the League Cup quarter-final on Wednesday evening.
