We need to be more consistent with our Defence-Moyes

dav 5David Moyes, Manchester United manager  admits he hasn’t made up his mind to determine his first-choice central defensive partnership.

Manchester United, who face Arsenal on Sunday, have internationals Rio Ferdinand ,Jonny Evans,Nemanja Vidic, , Phil Jones,  and Chris Smalling  to choose from in their back line.
Moyes did confess that the ability to be consistent in the centre of defence is proving a challenge as he tries to keep all five happy.

“You would like to have a bit of continuity but when you have five centre-backs like we have here in the squad they all need to be used,” he told reporters.

“They all need to be played at different times and some of them have had injuries which have meant we have had to change.

“It would be better if we could get a bit more consistency to it but, at the moment, whoever we have brought in has done well.”

However, Moyes does admit that being inconsistent for choice at the back does have its advantages.

“I am pleased because if we can tighten up at the back, the quality of players we have got in the forward areas tend to make the difference,” he added.

“So I am pleased that in the last couple of games we have looked a little more solid, and more likely not to concede so many goals.”
