Moyes claims unfair draw for new season

Manchester United's new manager David Moyes has criticised the series of fixtures his team has been handed at the start of the season, claiming it could have been a deliberate ploy by the Premier League to give them a tough opening.

The champions' next games after their opening win over Swansea City are Chelsea at home, and Manchester City and Liverpool away.

Moyes believes it's the hardest start to a Manchester United season for 20 years, and he hopes it's not been done deliberately because of their runaway league victory last season.
