David Moyes wants to sign more top-class talent at Manchester United

Moyes's delayed arrival from Everton meant the only major signing United made during the last transfer window was Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini from his old club. United failed in their attempts to bring Spain Under-21 captain Thiago Alcantara and midfielders Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera and Daniele de Rossi to Old Trafford.

Manchester: Manchester United manager David Moyes has said he's still short of players ready to go straight into the English champions' first-team and warned fans to prepare for more days like last weekend's derby defeat.

United were thrashed 4-1 by Manchester City, a result immediately billed as a "demolition derby", on Sunday.

Moyes, speaking ahead of Wednesday's League Cup tie against arch-rivals Liverpool, said he was under no illusions about the scale of the task confronting him in succeeding retired United manager Alex Ferguson, who bowed out with the team winning the Premier League by 11 points last season.
