“Obviously not winning can affect your confidence, it plays a big part in football but prior to that we'd won six games in a row and we were not talking about confidence in the game after that. It can happen - you lose games in football - but we need to try to get back to winning ways and get those three points.
“I've had equally challenging times at other times in my career. It's all the same - losing games makes it difficult. Overall, there is a lot of attention but it was to be expected.”
Swansea will be without defender Dwight Tiendalli and midfielder Jonathan de Guzman, who both featured last Sunday, in addition existing injuries to several other players but despite these enforced changes to their side, Moyes knows what to expect from Saturday’s visitors.
“I think there will be a lot of similarities (to last weekend). I don't think Swansea can dramatically change too much. We know their style of play. There might be player changes but I don't think they will be a great deal different to how they played last week.”
