Cracks appearing as boss ties himself in knots

But when questioned on that subject, the manager came out fighting, saying his team does entertain.

Only to then concede they don’t score many goals and that he has set his team up to ‘fight for narrow draws’ during the last month. Moyes also admitted his team are over-reliant on individuals.

“We’ve been really good entertainment,” Moyes said, as reported by The Mirror.

“We’ve scored more goals than we’ve ever done before. And we’ve got three or four players playing with the biggest countries in the world at our club. I think we’re in a really good place…

“We’ve found it a struggle to score goals in the last month… I’ll always take responsibility but there is a bit or responsibility that goes where you need to stand up and be counted. During the opening part of the season we scored quite a lot of goals, scored in most games and we were looking likely.

“Slightly mitigating circumstances since January 1st with no Mo, Jarrod’s been coming back from an injury, no Paqueta for the majority of it, no Mic [Antonio]. There are reasons why our goals have dried up but it shouldn’t have affected us defensively. We should still have had the steel to make sure we were at least keeping clean sheets or fighting for narrow draws.”
