Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes David Moyes deserves the club's backing, despite suffering another heavy defeat.

Just eight days on from their humbling at home to rivals Liverpool, United suffered another 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford, this time against Manchester City.

The result brings further scrutiny on Moyes' position, with the Scot enduring a chastening first campaign in charge of United, who lie seventh in the Barclays Premier League, 12 points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.
