Former England coach Peter Moores expects the current side to win The Ashes in Australia this winter.

Lancashire coach Peter Moores has revealed that he expects England to win the Ashes series in Australia this winter.

The first Test between the two sides begins on November 21 and Moores believes that the tourists will once again come out on top following the 3-0 triumph in the return series during the summer.

"It will be a great series," Moores told Sky Sports News. "The Aussies have got a bit of confidence from the series here but also England didn't play as well as they could have done.

"Even though England won 3-0 they have been quite quiet which I think is a good sign. They are working hard and they have a month in Australia beforehand.

"They will come and hit the Aussies hard and I think they will end up being too strong."

Moores served as England coach between April 2007 and January 2009.
