David Moyes is already building up a list excuses for a possible poor start for his Manchester United team in this seasons Premier league.
It seems the new Manchester United boss is not happy that his side play Swansea on Saturday, followed by a home game against Chelsea before away trips to Liverpool and Manchester City, there is a game against Crystal Palace in the middle.
Moyes questioned the run of fixtures and when talking to the BBC, he said:
“I think it’s the hardest start for 20 years that Manchester United have had. I hope it’s not because Manchester United won the league quite comfortably last year [that] the fixtures have been made much more difficult. I find it hard to believe that’s the way the balls came out of the bag, that’s for sure.”
Its probably not as much the Manchester United fixtures that Moyes is worried about, it may be the opening fixtures for his biggest rivals Manchester City.
It will be a huge surprise if City are not on top after the first four games as they play Newcastle, Cardiff , Hull & Stoke. Moyes knows that his side could possibly be six points behind after only four matches.
