"I think both Joseph and Joleon Lescott have played really well in the last few months," said Moyes. "There is a real good understanding about their partnership and they have both come on a great deal.

"But I think Joseph being made captain at Derby County not so long ago gave him a lot of confidence.

"He stepped up to it when people were out. He understands that he has got a big part to play at the club.

"Hopefully there is more to come. He has been here five years with us now and I remember saying when he first came here that central defenders get better with age and the more experience they get.

"He is doing a good job at the moment."
