David Moyes needs big win

Manchester United have lost to Liverpool and Manchester City on the road and drawn with Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season.

Their five wins from 10 games have come against Swansea, Crystal Palace, Sunderland, Stoke and Fulham. Even allowing for improved form recently it's about time that David Moyes landed a major scalp, don't you think?

On Sunday United host Arsenal. No longer Ferguson v Wenger and all that history, this is an opportunity for Moyes to put his mark on the fixture.

Arsenal, five points clear at the top, are eight ahead of the Red Devils.

It's not a must win match for Moyes, but it is a must not lose encounter if he is to harbour title ambitions because United won't claw back 11 points on the Gunners.
