Manchester United boss mocked by cruel Man City banner

Poor David Moyes, eh? The arrival of Juan Mata from Chelsea during last month's January transfer window appeared to have heralded a new dawn for the Scot at Old Trafford - but that all came crashing down once again with a dismal 2-1 defeat to Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.

Although Manchester United were admittedly hampered by defensive issues following injuries sustained to both Jonny Evans and Phil Jones during a tricky 90 minutes at the Britannia Stadium, the apparent ease with which they succumbed to their first league defeat to the Potters in 30 years will have been a cause for great concern.

Things got a trifle worse for Moyes on Monday evening, as the Manchester United boss became the subject of a cruel, mocking banner positioned by Manchester City at the Eithad Stadium ahead of their keenly-anticipated heavyweight clash against Chelsea.

The banner features a picture of David Moyes - which, from a distance, appears to have been modified somewhat - next to the sarcastic tagline ' 'Football Genius', in obvious reference to the former Everton favourite's lack of success to date at Old Trafford.

Following a disappointing display of their own, however, as Jose Mourinho extended his excellent record against Manuel Pellegrini as his Chelsea side produced a satisfying 1-0 win courtesy of superb strike from Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic, it is possible that Manchester City's supporters weren't finding things quite so enjoyable by the end of the evening...

See the picture of the cruel banner above - with a hat tip to 101 Great Goals for bringing it to our attention.
