Manchester United will look to avoid a third successive Premier League home defeat when they welcome Aston Villa to Old Trafford later today.

The Red Devils crashed 3-0, for the second time in a row, midweek to cross city rivals Manchester City, the sixth time they had lost at home this season.

Overall it was their 10th defeat of a disappointing campaign and the result has once again put the future of manager David Moyes in doubt.

The former Everton manager has endured a miserable debut season in the hot seat claiming many unwanted records along the way.

His Villa counterpart Paul Lambert, followed in the footsteps of Paul Scholes and Eric Cantona, when he offered his support for his fellow Scot.

“I would certainly think so. I don’t think Manchester United as a football club and an organisation will be panicked into doing anything.” The former Celtic midfielder said.

“I think the furore is outside the football club. I would fully expect him to be at Manchester United for a while.”

“He is trying his best for Manchester United, the way I am for Aston Villa.

“It comes with the territory – in the modern game, you are always one bad result away from being absolutely criticised.

“In years gone by you probably would have got a lot of time, but now the success people want is instant”

While Lambert has given his backing to Moyes, the former Norwich boss will be out to add to his woes as he plots revenge for the 3-0 defeat suffered by his troops in December.

The club have shown this season in wins over Manchester City and Chelsea that they have the players for the big occasions and with the 4-1 defeat from Stoke hanging over their heads they will keen to get a result.

Lambert is sweating on the fitness of Karim El Ahmadi (thigh strain) and Andreas Weimann (dead leg), both of whom came off against the Potters.

United meanwhile will welcome back Nemanja Vidic after a two match ban however Robin Van Persie once again misses out.

While United fans may not wish to hear it, the club do boast a good record against Villa and have won the last six games between the two clubs and are unbeaten in nine encounters in all competitions.
