Pique believes United will recover from their poor start under Moyes.
He told the Telegraph: "They will. It's a new coach, after nearly 30 years. Sir Alex Ferguson had some players with him for 10 years and now they have to adapt. Then next season will be another year.
"Now it's very different, it's true [from when he was there]. The situation has changed. United are having a difficult time, and City, because of all the money they have, have a great, great team and are fighting for the league."
