Moyes eyes more goals

David Moyes wants the United squad to follow the example of Ashley Young and Patrice Evra by adding goals from throughout the team.

Young became the Reds’ 14th different goal scorer in all competitions this term when he smashed the ball past Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen in Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup win, while left-back Evra’s follow-up was the France international’s second of the season.

Tom Cleverley opened his account for 2013/14 at Villa Park last Sunday, and with Robin van Persie ruled out until January with a thigh problem the manager wants the rest of his players to contribute as much as possible.

“We want goals to come from everybody,” Moyes insists. “We keep telling them that we need as many goals as we can from all different areas. 

"Hopefully you get the majority from your strikers throughout the season but it was good the other night that Ashley got himself a goal and Pat scored himself a really nice goal as well.”
