Moyes hails job well done

David Moyes declared himself satisfied with United’s 3-0 win away to Aston Villa, but has called on his side to improve in the coming weeks.

The Reds came away from Villa Park with three points courtesy of Danny Welbeck’s pair of first-half goals within three minutes and Tom Cleverley’s strike early in the second half, but the manager felt his side could have secured an even more emphatic result.

“It was a good job done,” Moyes told MUTV and Sky Sports. “The players played well. The only thing I'd be critical of is that we didn't score more goals. For the first five or six minutes we didn’t quite come out on the front foot, but after that we took control and played well.

“I think we'll play much better than that. I've told the players that that is the least we can do, we've got to keep going and keep winning more games.”

The win saw United claim victory for the first time in four Barclays Premier League outings, but the manager pinpointed the way his side took their chances as the major difference with recent results.

“I don't think there was an awful lot of difference except obviously we scored the goals,” said Moyes. “The fact we've not been scoring goals changes the way the games have looked, mainly for the media it changes how it looks. But we know we have to play better as well, and we have to play better than we did today again. It continually has to improve and it will improve, and I'll make sure it gets better in the coming month.”
