Could David Moyes be set for a Premier League return?

The former Manchester United boss is reportedly being lined up for the vacant Crystal Palace job.

Crystal Palace are considering approaching David Moyes about becoming their next manager, according to the London Evening Standard.

Just a season after his ill-fated appointment at Manchester United, the Scot could be set for a return to Premier League management.

And that would mean a return to Old Trafford in Novemeber, when Crystal Palace face United in the league.

Palace began their campaign with a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal just days after Tony Pulis left the club, although the Eagles maintained the solidity instilled by their previous manager, not making it easy for the Gunners.

United, however, also lost 2-1 as new boss Louis van Gaal tasted defeat in his Old Trafford debut.

It is a feeling Moyes will know well, having lost six home games during his time as United manager.

But the 51-year-old undoubtedly deserves a chance to rebuild his reputation within the Premier League - and Palace could be the perfect place to do it.

Much like Pulis, Moyes is known for a sensible style of football, with the Everton side he managed for 11 years succeeding thanks to sound defensive principles.

The Scot, after all, is a good manager, even if he didn't look like it at Manchester United.

Moyes wasn't the right fit at Old Trafford - although the problems were clearly not just of his own making - and won't be the right fit for any team looking to play expansive, attacking football. He might, though, be the perfect man to save Crystal Palace from relegation.

And he might just fancy his chances of causing an upset at United in November should he take the job.
