He needs to know United's best XI
Manchester United's manager David Moyes

SINGAPORE- Under David Moyes, Manchester United have lost their aura of invincibility.

Where visiting teams would once enter the Theatre of Dreams with trepidation, they now enter the ground smelling blood.

West Brom, Everton and Newcastle have all snapped 35-, 21-, and 41-year winless streaks respectively at Old Trafford this season.

While I believe that Moyes is still the right man to lead the Red Devils in the long run, he needs to get his act together - fast.

For a start, the Scot needs to figure out his best XI. He has not fielded the same starting line-up in the Premier League this season.

Over the 15 games played this season, he has made an average of 3.5 changes to the starting line-up per match.

In contrast, league leaders Arsenal have fielded the same line-up thrice.

Manager Arsene Wenger has made an average of only 1.8 changes to his starting line-up per game over the same period.

Stability is key to winning championships and that is exactly what United lack right now. This chopping and changing will only damage the players' morale.

As a player, not knowing what role you will play in the next game can affect your preparation and focus before match days.
