Peter Schmeichel has insisted that David Moyes is doing just fine as Manchester United manager despite receiving some criticism from fans.

After replacing the most successful manager in the clubs history, Sir Alex Ferguson, over the summer the defending champions have found going a little difficult.

After missing out on a number of transfer targets during the summer window, The Red Devil's suffered Premier League defeats to their biggest rivals Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League.

However, Moyes' men returned to form last night with a redemption victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford in the League Cup.

United are currently eighth in the table behind all of their major title competitors but the Danish goalkeeper who made nearly 400 appearances in eight years at the club doesn't think there is a problem.

He told SkySportsNews: "We always knew that whatever happened after Sir Alex, it would be a bumpy road. Someone had to be really brave and take that job. 

"We knew every little thing that he does would be scrutinised and reported on in the media. It would be a debate - is he good enough?

"Has he got a few games left before he loses his game? He signed a six-year contract, there's a reason behind the six years.

"People in football have short memories. The start of last season is the same as this season you know.

"We played relatively few number of games and had two defeats one at Everton then Spurs at home and we still managed to win by 13 points.

"I listened to the radio on the way here and they're saying it's not even a top four squad, and I'm thinking 'guys where do you get this from?"

United have the chance to get their domestic campaign back on track this weekend when they welcome West Bromwich to the North-West.
