David Beckham insists that he has no doubts over Manchester United's ability to remain a dominant force in English football under David Moyes.

Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham has declared that he expects the Red Devils to remain the dominant force in English football under David Moyes.

United have endured a difficult start to their first campaign without Sir Alex Ferguson at the helm since 1986, losing three games out of six in the Premier League.

He told The Telegraph: "There was always going to be that moment when Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

"Who was going to take over, what was it going to be like when a new manager came in, were they going to be the same force as they have been over the last 20 years?

"They will be because they are Manchester United. There's a transitional period that will happen but David Moyes is a very good manager."

Moyes's quest to turn things round at Old Trafford continues this evening with a trip to the North East, as United take on struggling Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
