David Moyes insists he will get it right as Manchester United manager.
Moyes has endured another roller-coaster week, plunging from the high of that five-goal hammering of Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League to a first home defeat by Everton in 21 years, with a battling draw at Tottenham in between.
Caught in the teeth of the storm, Moyes is ploughing on through, even if it is painful viewing at times, with his side ninth in the table, 12 points adrift of leaders Arsenal ahead of Saturday’s visit of Newcastle.
Eventually, the Scot is adamant he will turn the situation around.
“When people go into new jobs it can take a little bit of time to settle in,” he said.
“We have got ourselves into a position that is a bit further away in the league than we would like. We had a difficult start, then we had a couple of slip-ups. We would have expected to kick into gear by now and we haven’t.
“We have to do better. But we will get it right. I am sure of that.”
Prior to the setback against Everton, United were unbeaten in 12 games and, at times, starting to become a more effective unit.
“We have lost one in 13,” he said. “If someone had been told before those 13 games we would lose one out of the next 13 the response might have been that is really good.”
