New Manchester United boss David Moyes claimed his first Premier League victory at the first time of asking last weekend with a 4-1 away win over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

The Scot was appointed earlier this summer and was under pressure to recreate the form and style of a side that was managed for 26 years by fellow Scot Sir Alex Ferguson.

Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck both scored a brace to get Moyes' reign at Old Trafford off to a winning start, which saw them leapfrog Aston Villa at the top of the Premier League after the opening weekend. 

The England international will be full of confidence after doubling his goal tally from the previous season in just 90 minutes of football. 

Swansea's goalscorer was new record free signing Wilfried Bony, who found the net in his first appearances in the Premier League, after coming on as a second-half substitute for Leon Britton.

The Former Everton manager now faces tough games against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in which he says its 'hard to believe' the start United have been given.
