Former Manchester United and Everton star has warned Red Devils fans that defensive tactics will always be the philosophy for David Moyes.

Louis Saha played over 150 times for Manchester United and Everton combined and has played under David Moyes' guidance for four years throughout his career.

The French forward told talkSPORT: "Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes work hard and both want to win.

"They do have different philosophies though. One was a striker and the other is a defender."

Saha struck 28 goals in 96 appearances during his Old Trafford days after signing from Fulham before going on to join Moyes in 2008.

Saha added: “When I was at Everton we were always hard to beat and when I was at Manchester United we were known for being hard to contain and always scoring goals in the last minute.”

A new philosophy for Manchester United to adapt to will naturally take time to adjust to and with current results going against them Moyes will be hoping for patience from the fans.

Moyes was given Sir Alex Ferguson's full backing at the start of the season to lead the team he built forward and it does not appear that anything has changed.

Moyes is going through an uncomfortable stage overseeing three consecutive losses however, the team remains in three competitions.

A Capital One Cup final is by no means out or reach for Moyes' men and the team play host to Swansea at the weekend with an opportunity to put pressure on fourth-placed Liverpool before they play on Sunday.

The Champions League draw has been kind to Manchester United too with an away tie against Olympiacos one they will be expected to progress from.

No doubt a transitional season for David Moyes this year which was always going to be the case but it can still be a successful maiden year.
