EPL preview: Nemanja Vidic tells Manchester United to get back to basics

Serbian defender Vidic acknowledges United have been well below their best so far, and he believes his defence must provide a solid foundation to allow Moyes' men to get back on track against Sunderland, who sit bottom of the table without a manager after Paolo Di Canio's sacking and still waiting for their first win of the season.

London: Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has told his team-mates to get back to basics as they bid to ease the pressure on David Moyes at Sunderland on Saturday.

Under-fire boss Moyes has endured a bumpy beginning to his first season at Old Trafford, with United slumping to 12th in the Premier League table after their worst start since 1989.

Defeats at bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in the league had alarm bells ringing among United fans concerned Moyes won't be able to emulate Alex Ferguson's glorious reign, and last weekend's 2-1 home loss against West Bromwich Albion sparked a rare chorus of disapproval from the Old Trafford crowd.
