David Moyes's position as Manchester United manager remains secure despite the dismal 2-0 defeat by Olympiakos in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

In a season of disappointing results during the Scot's inaugural campaign in charge, the manner of the loss against the Greek champions at the Karaiskakis Stadium, in which they managed only a single shot on target, was a new low for United.

The display leaves the champions needing to win the last-16 second leg by three goals at Old Trafford on 19 March to avoid being knocked out by the Olympiakos, who are considered a continental minnow.

Yet despite this – and a league position that has United 11 points from Liverpool in the fourth and final Champions League berth – Moyes retains the full support of the club.

Before the second leg United travel to West Bromwich Albion on 8 March ahead of the visit of Liverpool to Old Trafford, meaning Moyes's team could be an even greater number of points from fourth place by the time they face Brendan Rogers' side.
