Reports in several UK newspapers claim that Moyes have three games starting against the Greek outfit to save his job. The club are currently in the midst of a crisis after suffering their 7th defeat in 14 games so far this year in the 3-0 reverse at home to rivals Liverpool.

With Champions League qualification a remote possibility with 9 games left in the season, progress in this year’s competition, and pride, is all that is left to play for United.

The former Everton boss has cut a bewildered figure at times this season and admitted after the clash with Liverpool that the job was tougher than he expected.

“The job was always going to be hard.” he said. “Is it harder than I thought it would be? Yeah, I would say so.”

“The players are capable of turning it round. We’re not playing as well as we should be, we have to play better. We’re going to have to make ourselves harder to beat.

“We”re also going to have make sure we’re creating more and taking more opportunities – we’ve got a lot to do to do both those things.

Moyes is poised to make some changes on Wednesday after watching his side fail to turn up.

Ryan Giggs, who has struggled for game time and has not featured since February, could come into the side for his 140th Champions League appearance while Darren Fletcher, another left out for the clash with the Merseysiders will also hope to feature.

Nemanja Vidic will play with the red card he picked up against Liverpool not counting in Europe. Juan Mata, so ineffective on Sunday is ineligible while Marouane Fellaini could pay the price for a poor performance.

Olympiacos, who lead 2-0 from the first leg, have lost all 11 of their previous visits to England and will head into the game with doubts over Ivan Marcano (groin) and Javier Saviola (quadriceps).

Definitely out is Michael Olaitan who has not played for Olympiacos since collapsing against Panathinaikos earlier this month.
