On this day: Moyes makes United admission, Smith praises Leeds

David Moyes MUFC

News stories about Manchester United, Arsenal and Leeds United all feature.

Manchester United’s win against Southampton last night completes the latest round of Premier League action, with the focus now switching to some very important European games this week.

There are plenty of talking points for fans to mull over with the transfer rumour mill spinning round and producing no shortage of transfer reports leading up to the January window.

We’ve decided to look back at the stories grabbing the headlines on this day last year.

‘Moyes: United aren’t doing anything right’

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes admitted that his side weren’t doing anything right during their slump last season.

United struggled in the league under Moyes, eventually finishing seventh at the end of the season after he’d been sacked.

“I think there’s a bit of everything that we could be doing better. We would generally like to play better, but we’d like to pass it better, we would like to create more chances, we would like to defend better,” said Moyes.

‘Vieira on Arsenal’s main problem’

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira undermined the club’s chances of winning the Premier League title by suggesting the Gunners didn’t know how to win ugly.

Arsenal spent more time at the top of the Premier League last season than any other team.

“When you look at Arsenal, they play fantastic football. But sometimes you need to win games playing badly, and I don't think Arsenal are capable of that at the moment,” Vieira told the Mirror.

‘Smith praises Leeds United’s character’

Leeds United striker Matt Smith praised the team’s character after coming from behind to rescue a point against Watford.

The Whites went two goals down in the Championship clash this time last season but fought hard to get back into the game.

“I think that we have got to be happy with the way the game went - We are happy with the point and it keeps that undefeated run at home going. It shows tremendous character and we’ll move on,” said Smith.
