David Moyes insists he is not
desperate to add to his
Manchester United squad,
despite Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to
Liverpool at Anfield.
Daniel Sturridge struck in the
fourth minute to maintain
Liverpool’s 100 per cent start to
the season, leaving United with

unjust (for us) not to be seen up
there with a real chance of
winning the championship.”
