David Moyes will be feeling a whole lot better about life at Manchester United after this past week.

After a struggling start to the season for the Red Devils, three straight wins against Real Sociedad, Stoke City and Norwich City have eased the pressure on the Scot. 

Momentum is slowly building at Old Trafford, but it's the next three games which are now crucial to the club's campaign. 

And David Moyes will be desperate to lead his side to three more victories. 

This weekend, Moyes takes his side to a struggling Fulham and three points at Craven Cottage will represent United's first back-to-back league wins of the season. 

However, if they once again fail to put two league wins together, doubt will quickly re-enter the minds of Moyes' stars. 

It's a crucial game, not just for belief, but to keep them in the mix for the title and the Red Devils must inflict more pain on a less than confident Fulham side. 

A victory against Fulham would set Moyes up nicely for another Champions League clash. 

The Old Trafford chief will be pleased with his side's progress in Europe so far and if the Red Devils can get another three points against Sociedad, then they will be all-but through in Group A. 

United were able to beat Sociedad 1-0 at Old Trafford and will not have it their own way in Spain, but if United have their stars firing, then they have more than enough to win in Sociedad.

This would then give United the perfect platform to concentrate on their domestic football and with Arsenal visiting the Theatre of Dreams on November 10, Moyes will know victory is a must against the current league leaders. 

The Arsenal game will be key for their season. If they can beat Arsene Wenger's side on home turf then it will fire belief in to the the United faithful and the players. 

After defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City and a draw against Chelsea, Moyes will be desperate to win a big league fixture. 

And the chance to do that and claw back some points at the top of the table must be taken by the Red Devils. 

If by 6pm on November 10 United have made it six straight wins in all competitions, momentum really will be picking up at the Theatre of Dreams. 

United have started to look like their old selves, but can they now continue their progress?

Moyes must keep his side on the charge.
