David Moyes says that he is more concerned with the fitness of his players after their pre-season game ended in defeat against the Singha All-Stars.

Manchester United manager David Moyes has said that he is looking at the positives after their 1-0 defeat by Singha All Star's XI in Thailand.

Despite Moyes's first match as United boss ending in a loss, the Scot said that he is more concerned with the fitness levels of his players ahead of the new Premier League season.

"We missed a couple of chances at the end which may well have got us something out of the game but the important thing is we got a few of the players through 90 minutes," Moyes told the club's official website.

"It was a really good fitness workout – anyone who was watching [in the stadium] tonight will tell you that, as it was very warm. So I was pleased with that.

"Overall I thought the fitness of the players was good and I'll take that as a positive."

United begin their title defence away to Swansea City on August 17.
