1)Moyes must win against top opposition
Outside of a win against Arsenal, United’s record against the rest of the top half is appalling, with losses to Man City, Liverpool, Everton, Tottenham and Newcastle, and draws against Chelsea and Southampton.

In a season that manager Jose Mourinho wrote off as a learning curve for his new-look side, Chelsea are not doing too badly. Third in the league at the time of writing, into the knockout phase of the Champions League as group winner and with The Blues’ raft of midfield talent starting to prove their worth, The Special One hasn’t had too much to complain about.
