I DON'T get the criticism of Davie Moyes after just three games in charge of Man United.

Do fans not remember how long it took Sir Alex Ferguson to get it right when he arrived at the club from Aberdeen.

Moyes proved himself a decent job at Everton without winning anything and I'm sure he'll get it right when he settles in at Old Trafford.

Saturday should see an improvement in fortunes and after a tough start it's newly-promoted Crystal Palace (12.45pm) who roll up at the champions.

Oddschecker point out that since Palace were last in the top flight eight years ago United have kept 18 clean sheets in 24 home games against newly-promoted clubs.

So get your dosh on the Reds winning to nil at x-x and remember Moyes pays more attention to defence than Fergie did. His sides were more likely to win 3-1 or 4-1 than 1-0 or 2-0.

United are no bigger than 2-9 to win the match but a victory and a clean sheet pays 1-1 at Coral.

Marouane Fellaini could make his debut but the man to back for first goal is Robin van Persie who netted three goals out of the four a huffing and puffing Holland side netted against Estonia and Andorra in the World Cup double-header.

The Dutch star is 3-1 at William Hill and anyone who fancies Fellaini can have a much bigger 7-1 at Ladbrokes.

United lost just three league games at home last season and haven't lost to Palace in the league since 1991.

Palace though will probably hold United to 2-0 or 3-0 and the latter is my Saturday Bonkers Bet at 9-1 with William Hill.

    Mr F I don’t see Man Utd finishing in the top 2 in my opinion. Moyes comes unstuck against the bigger sides and I see this trend continuing this season. They done little in the transfer market and signed the wrong type of player based on what they needed. Don’t get me wrong I rate Fellaini highly but they are crying out for midfielders who can control that area of the park,someone in the mould of Keane or Ince. Cleverly and Carrick are not the answer. Top 2 will be Chelsea and City. United,Liverpool,Arsenal and Sours will contest the other 2 CL places but that’s just my opinion so I’m leaving myself open too being red faced at the end of the season should Moyes surprise me and find a way if winning against the top clubs in the EPL

      Mr H, it’s different beating the top two at Everton than it is at Man Utd. I think they’ll up there but it’s difficult to split them, City and Chelsea right now. He needs to find his feet in his new job and once he settles he’ll be fine.

    Am Chelsea but tell u this only a fool would write off Man.U.They still have a strong squad with the best bench but need Rooney to be starting every week.
