So far this season, David Moyes has started 22 different players in the Premier League alone without much success. His pre-season was short and there is a seeming acceptance that United should have bought him out of his contract at Everton to give him more preparation time. Yet that isn't an indication that he should be experimenting so much, so early, in the league.
Moyes should have established a first XI as early as possible and had faith in the team he picked. This would have shown the confidence, faith and self-assurance needed to either reap the rewards of playing a set XI or illustrate that he's given any players who wouldn't have performed optimally ample playing time to be able to replace them without question.
Instead, what has started to happen is a tinkering process, sometimes a process of mass change which has resulted in a dogged fight for places in a confused state instead of players trying to impress in training ready to replace any underperformers.
Moyes needs to change as little as possible in order to gain maximum points, especially against mid-table opposition who will be willing to try a more physical and/or defensive tact to gain points from United.
The United team need an understanding of each other in order to break down opposition and defend with more cohesion.
