EPL preview: David Moyes backs Manchester United to avoid unwanted landmark

London: David Moyes insists he isn't worried about Manchester United's frustrating start to the season hitting a new low at Sunderland on Saturday.

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.
