Moyes says Manchester United squad not scared at Old Trafford

The Scot insists his side is not feeling nervous ahead of its Premier League clash with West Ham, which could potentially bring a third successive home top-flight loss.
Manchester United boss David Moyes insists there is no fear within his squad as it looks to avoid a third straight league defeat at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United has not lost three successive league games at Old Trafford since 1979, with defeats to Everton and Newcastle meaning it could achieve the unwanted feat against West Ham at the weekend.

But Moyes is adamant there are no nerves surrounding the upcoming clash and believes United fans and player alike are ready to get back to winning ways.

"The results have not been what we wanted," Moyes told reporters. "Because of that, words like nervy, vulnerability, anxious all come to mind.

"But I have never personally found that. The fans have backed the team. They know we need to play better and we need to score some more goals but it has not been for the want of trying."

Moyes also believes the festive period coming up, which sees United play a quick batch of fixtures, won't harm his club.

"I remember the days when it was quite often two games in two days," said the Scot. "I played in situations like that. We are complaining now because it is two in three days but we are used to playing at Christmas in our country."
