Manchester United manager David Moyes insists his men still believe they can trouble the Premier League's best sides despite their miserable start to 2014.

Not including their extra-time League Cup match against Sunderland, United have won just two of their eight matches since the turn of the year following Sunday's 2-2 draw with bottom club Fulham.

They are nine points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool and travel to Arsenal tomorrow hoping to get their push for a Champions League place back on track.

They're really good professionals … and what I see in training makes me feel they'll get results

But despite failing to beat teams like Swansea, Stoke, Sunderland and Fulham of late Moyes maintains he still has confidence in his players.

He said: "We've got a good team and there will be very few teams desperate to play Manchester United.

"The players are hurting. I can see every day that they're hurting because the results aren't going the way they want.

"They're really good professionals … and what I see in training makes me feel they'll get results."

United have now failed to win seven of their 13 home matches in the Premier League this season.

Moyes defended his tactics, but admitted the Fulham result was the lowest point this season.

He said: "Today was as bad as it gets. We dominated the game. Being one down was bad enough. The amount of attempts, chances and play we had was unbelievable. How we didn't win I have no idea.
